I bought my 1973 Firebird 400 in 1977 when I was 16 years old. It had 51,735 miles. I garage stored it for 29 years and started restoration in 2009. My son and I rebuilt the engine. It was bored over to .030 with a scat stroker kit.
Now it’s a 461 cu. in. with 549 lift compcam. I put in a scorpion roller valve train that features Kaufman aluminum heads. The fuel delivery is a Rob mic fuel pump to a pro fuel system with a Holley 870. The transmission is a GM Turbo 400 with a B&M 3K stall converter built by M. Downs.
It has got a 12 bolt master rear end with 373 gears and I rebuilt the suspension. The paint and body was done by Dean Osborne in Levercross, North Carolina.. I have all authentic GM sheet metal. My fiancé and me restored the interior. I finished my car in October 2017.
