My barn find is a 1968 Firebird Convertible. A friend of mine bought it last November from a lady who was a high school friend of his. They both still live where they grew up. She got the car as a high school graduation present. She drove the car until she got married, then it mostly sat until her son drove it for a few years. Her father was a dairy farmer and they parked the car in his barn in 1991. The car has 42,000 original miles, original paint and top in very good condition. Never wrecked, never retitled (I have the original 1969 title). All of the manuals, etc were still in the car. A very small amount of surface rust in a couple places but not much. It has the “deluxe” interior, power top, console with floor shifter, automatic transmission, 350 2 barrel. Otherwise pretty stock. My buddy pulled it out of the barn and took it to his shop. The car started and ran even with the old plugs, etc. He is a very busy man, runs a huge business, has a lot of other projects, and decided this was one too many. He knew that my first car was a 1969 Firebird (same color) and I had told him if he ever decided to sell the car to let me know. Well, that day came about a month ago. Since then I have replaced all of the usual stuff (belts, hoses, points, plugs, wires, distributor, fluids, etc. I’ve also installed new shocks, brakes and a OEM replica dual exhaust along with an original set of Rally II wheels in great shape and Firestone redline tires. Doing nothing to exterior or interior other than replacing carpet and speakers (with OEM replicas). Haven’t driven it yet but can’t wait!! Fresh out of the barn! Back at the shop after a little cleaning Clean interior!
