Default 1980 Low Budget Slow Bracket Bird

Local track still closed. 401K took a huge hit. Decided to try & sell all my Pontiac & racing stuff. Best deal is everything for $10k.

(1) 1980 Bird, slow bracket footbraker, with "77/"78 nose. 455/6x-8 heads, stainless valves, forged pistons, H-beams, HFT cam, Chinese single plane, 750 vac or 795 Edelbrock Q-jet, alum water pump, new alum rad, new fuel cell, 2 new batts, new tach, new man & elec fuel pump, factory 2.56 posi, TH400, new gate shifter, new driveshaft, brand new 10" slicks. A T/A hood & a hood with a big scoop on it, plus new hood hinges. Engine has never been on a track & has about 2 street miles. Would cost most guys $5k or more just to build the complete engine, from scratch. Will take $5k for the whole car, as is.

Several of you guys will remember this car as the one I started a build thread on, which many said would not pass tech at any sanctioned track. The owner of my local track said his is an outlaw track, so bring it on over. Many here would consider this car total junk. That's why the price is so cheap. For MANY, just a complete engine like this one would cost $5k or more, if all new & core parts had to be bought. So, in my mind, this car is worth quite a bit more than $5k, as it sits. Opinions differ.

(2) 400 block 4.5" stroker engine. Had this engine built a few years back, as a dirt track engine. Never used it. Have never even seen it. It's been at others' shops. I think it has 6X heads & a roller cam. For anyone interested, I can get details & pics. $5k

(3) '77 350, with 6x-4 heads. Complete core, intake to oil pan. 5 6x-8 head cores. '73 iron Q-jet intake, 750 E-Q-jet in good shape. 800 Buick Q-jet. Several Q-jets for parts, plus some new rebuild parts. Spare complete 8.5 Bird rear, plus another housing.

(4) 1985 Pontiac Safari wagon. Was gonna make a bracket car with it, before I found the '80 Bird. It also has an 8.5 rear.

(5) I'm sure there are lots of smaller items I haven't mentioned, such as the snowflake wheels that came with the Bird. The front tires are new Cooper Cobras.

Can provide more info and pics for serious buyers with cash.

Have never had any luck at all, selling engines or cars here. But, since the ads are free, what the heck.

I'd say the condition is mostly stripped, to build a bracket car with. If you wanna build a street car, this ain't it. But it does have some good body parts, that are probably hard to find.

Not sure if the rear is worth extra bucks, or not. It has a 5" bc. May be real similar to an 8.5 truck rear. Don't know.
