TONS OF ORIGINAL DOCUMENTATION, WINDOW STICKER & MORE, #'S MATCHING 4 SPEED CAR
It's hard not to get excited about a 1968 Pontiac Firebird convertible. After all, with less than 17,000 of these built nearly a half-century ago, it's getting harder and harder to find V8 stick shift examples that look this original. So when it's highly documented and this affordable, you know you're looking at something special.
The factory-correct Cameo Ivory has a bit of added luster and shine thanks to a full professional respray within its lifetime. This convertible has been restored with factory standards in mind, but that doesn't mean it can't have a little extra polish thanks to more modern paint practices. In fact, with the paint and the nice vinyl folding roof, the appeal of this Pontiac is truly black and white. The design of these first-gen cars really lived up to the Firebird name with a beak-like chrome nose that looks like a bird in flight. Plus, all the correct chrome bumpers, trim, and badging make for a great complete vintage package. You might find plenty of these with added superfluous bright trim, but this one goes for a much more original personality. After all, when was the last time you saw the PMD (Pontiac Motor Division) factory wheel cover like these?!
You paid a little bit more for a Pontiac back in the day, and the difference can be seen inside where there's a delightfully upscale black interior. It has a great texture on the vinyl bucket seats that remains complete and fantastic today. This is a comfortable center console car that has a nice wood pattern used through the entire center section to break up its fashionable black. Like a good sports car, the driver's focus is on the deep dual-pod gauges viewed through the original three-spoke steering wheel. While this one keeps an authentic attitude right down to the heat/defrost slider, one upgrade you'll enjoy is the AM/FM/cassette stereo with a digital tuner to make it easier to adapt to more modern music players.
This is the kind of engine bay you love to see in a driver's car. The motor was overhauled around 1,000 miles ago, and it even still shows fresh hoses. Still, the 350 cubic-inch Pontiac V8 retains its factory honest appearance. You see it in the correct air cleaner and the correct Pontiac blue on the block and valve covers. It's a total package that means you won't hesitate to take this Firebird out for a drive, and that's exactly how this one should be seen. The V8 exudes a great sound, especially as you row your way through the desirable four-speed manual transmission. Add in new shocks and the grip of modern Kuhmo tires, and this is a great cruising droptop.
A car this authentic needs documentation to showcase, and you get plenty of it in this sale. It includes the original window sticker, bill of sale, warranty card, owner's manual, restoration receipts, and restoration photos. This is a driver's showpiece at an irresistible price. Call today!!!
