Plan on spending mid 20s to low 30s. My son just bought what youíre looking for, numbers matching 400-4spd car 66,000 original miles. Rust free two owner northern Montana car. Guy wanted $26,000 but took less because it was so far away.

Not exactly what you want, but in your price range.

https://classics.autotrader.com/clas...bird/101069100

A nice 400/4-speed will be higher, unless you luck across a super deal, either from a guy desperate for money or one who doesn't know what his car is worth.

I've also noticed that the cars are usually much cheaper if they do not have a 400 engine. So, you might wanna consider one with a nice body & a 350 Pontiac engine. If you want more power, you can have a 400 or bigger engine built, later.

Also appears that most of the 400 cars have TH400 trans. Might consider buying one of these, then have it swapped over to 4-speed manual at some later date.

Well, I don't know how many of these ads are still good. But, you can just Google 1968 Firebird for sale & find lots of ads.
