This month, CPR owner Joe Jackson and his team take their tools to the Firebird's subframe and begin disassembly.Our restoration of Pontiac's world-famous '68 Firebird Grand Marque VIII factory show car is speeding along at full-throttle. To recap, in Part 1, Classic Pontiac Rescue (CPR) in Honea Path, South Carolina, removed the Firebird's front clip and diagnosed misaligned sheetmetal gaps as subframe shifting. In Part 2, the crew removed the Firebird 400's code-YT Pure-Pontiac engine from the subframe, examined its internals for damage, and prepped the block for a trip to the machine shop. Last month in Part 3, they removed the rearend assembly.
