I have a 79 Bird with a 3.8 v6 I have started trying to restore pickedd it up for 500 off the street corner. Every one I talk to doesnt know of the engine it has and that it was ever in it. Through research i have tied it into the car. I cant seem to find parts worth a darn. Is there anything special about and would anyone know how many of the following car were produced. 1979 Pontiac Firebird 231 (3.8) V6 California High Altitude Automatic Without Air emissions. Stock was maroon I can barely tell through the fresh paint layer left by last painters on door. I plan on restoring it however difficulty finding parts is making me wanna throw a 350 in her. Any knowledge would be helpfull.
