Interesting color combo, numbers-matching V8 power, and priced right – this 1968 Pontiac Firebird is all about keeping you in touch with the road and looking good while doing it.
Sure, we love '60s power machines in red and black, but here's a more sophisticated way to standout. The factory-correct Autumn Bronze has a great glow in the sunshine that reminds you Pontiacs were not only performance-bred, but premium, too. This up-scale feeling is continued on the originally optioned black vinyl roof. But more than just a great color combo, you love that these first-gen Firebirds were an instant classic thanks to the bold styling. It starts up front with the unique chrome bumper that gives the whole front end Pontiac's wide track look. Good bodywork helps make sure items like the crease that runs from nose to tail is crisply defined, and you recognize the faux vents in the quarter panels are a cool contrast that helps break up the otherwise smooth sheetmetal. This one really is great right down to the details like the 350 callouts on the hood, and the Rally II wheels with PMD center caps.
Another great premium touch is when the vinyl roof is a preview of the interior color. The black bucket seat interior is neatly done and carries an exceptional level of factory correctness. You paid a bit more for a Pontiac back in the day, so it's nice to still see it now with welcomed extras like the wood appearance on the dash and the desirable center console with floor shift. There's even provisions for air conditioning. You have complete control from the driver's seat as you grab the three-spoke wheel with Firebird horn cap that gives a clear view of the dual pod gauge layout.
The engine bay is a masterpiece of factory-correct presentation. It starts with the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. The block and valve covers glow from within the dark engine bay thanks to a fresh application of the correct Pontiac turquoise. And we know you love this down to the details like the factory air topper with the “Keep your GM car all GM” decal (other car guys love that kind of thing, too.) The motor hasn't been just well cared for on the outside. The way this one fires up with confidence and runs smoothly lets you know this original V8 has received the right maintenance over its lifetime, too. Going down the road, you'll not only appreciate the 350's power, but also the easy driving features like power steering and the three-speed automatic transmission.
This is a very cool V8 classic Firebird that has a very classy and original presentation. So since it's offered at a gone-tomorrow price, you need to hurry up and call today!
