My Sprint Firebird was like that, 4bbl, 4spd, lots of nice options like gauges, console stereo, 8 track etc but manual steering and brakes. I just gave in myself, rounded up a correct OHC power...

Your car will look great with Rally wheels too. Neat that it has a 4 speed. You almost never saw 4 speeds on the base 350 LeMans but much more common on Firebirds. You could have a sporty car...

Up to March 17 the standard tire was an F70 wideoval with black wall (except E70 on the base 1bbl 6). A 400 car got you the same tire...

Firs the pattern, late production hardtop. Nifty that your car is two tone, rare in general but super rare on Firebirds. I’m trying to remember what colors 51 and 50 are?

I’m making my call on the odds, 7,000 GTO convertibles, 100 judge convertibles. Add the power antenna and it’s pretty darn good odds it not a judge.

I’d say it got rear ended by a big rig, right front tire into about the driver side frame rail line. When 40 tons hits 2 tons the 2 tons doesn’t do to well.
