1978 Pontiac Firebird
Description & Details
This example is one of the Gold editions and was previously converted to RHD when it came to Australia many years ago. The current owner has had the dream of seeing it back on the road with gleaming Gold colour for some years and now it’s time for the Griffs team to bring that dream to reality after being a stalled project. The Pontiac arrived at Griffs mostly disasembled and with many boxes of parts.
The right hand drive conversion has seen better days and has recieved some love with the addition of right hand drive power rack and pinion from Retro Rack. A complete new firewall has been fabricated and fitted by the Griffs team. The remainder of the RHD conversion has received an upgrade also including the dash.
The 403CI engine has been rebuilt many years ago and has now had a freshen up and Fitech EFI system added. The factory automatic transmission has been thrown over the shoulder and a freshly custom built TH700R4 transmission has been fitted in its place.
Bodywork and paint has been completed and we are now well into the reassembly.
Keep watching as the project takes shape………….
