Thanks to Barn Finds reader Pat L. for sending in this flock of Firebirds! They are located in Susanville, California and are reluctantly listed for sale here on craigslist, where the owner blames tax issues for having to let them go. They are asking for $5,000 or best offer for the three cars.
This 1970 was the main car that the seller was working on. It’s equipped with a factory 400 cubic inch V8 and did run and drive before the seller tore it down for refurbishment. The ad states that paperwork exists for this car, so my assumption is that there’s a clear title.
This one is just a body shell. It’s a 1971, and doesn’t even include suspension (it appears to be on top of what’s left of another car). While the sheet metal looks a little crusty around the edges, parts like the trunk lid and even chrome look to be in excellent condition.
There is a usable interior with this car as well.
The #3 Firebird is a roller, but the body is said to be excellent and there are even Trans Am vents in this front fender (that doesn’t mean it’s a Trans Am!) if you are interested in adding those features to the 1970 as you build the car back up. This one is said to be a 1972. While undoubtedly a challenge, I think there are enough parts here to build up a nice car assuming you are willing to put paint, tires and some other parts on the shopping list. Anyone out there willing to take the challenge?
