1968 Pontiac Firebird Pro Touring Restomod – Full Restoration Project

1968 Pontiac Firebird Pro Touring Restomod – Full Restoration Project

This Pontiac Firebird build began as an unfinished project; the owner was collecting parts for several years. With a good stash of parts on hand to start the build, he disassembled the Firebird down to a bare shell and had the body sand blasted. What he discovered was the level of body repair needed was simply beyond his capabilities. A few months later, the Firebird arrived at MetalWorks for a full transformation. The Firebird was to retain its classic looks, but with modern performance abilities.

Eso no es una restauración, es una actualización… Restauración es mantener en estado original todos sus componentes volviéndoles utilizables, pero fuera de eso, el trabajo es de primera calidad, excelente, felicidades!

Very impressive restoration. You guys did a mega job on this Firebird. If I could ask a question : why not IRS instead of a live axle?

It was stated that the body was sand blasted. By the looks of the panel streak marks and the under lying metal after the outer skin was removed, it appears that it was dipped. Any idea if it was dipped as well ? Thanks

Beautiful! Hyped me up! I’m almost done with my 68 Camaro. Doing a Mast Motorsports LS3/416 with a supercharger, 6 speed and independent rear suspension. Lots of carbon fiber, but painted. I don’t want to lose the look of the old classic.
