Pontiac fans, have we got a treat for you! This properly restored 1968
Firebird features a fresh V8, 700R4 transmission, posi-traction rear end
and a killer paint job. Add in a stack of documents that include
restoration photos, and receipts, and you end up with a slam dunk of a
drop-top cruiser that's ready for the show field or the open road.
The quality work throughout the body is apparent. Thousands of dollars were
spent on the 2006 restoration. The floors and trunk are spotless. This was
never a rusty car. Panel gaps are precise and the dark blue pearl paint is
better than they were applying to new cars in 1967. It has all been buffed
to an eye-popping shine. All of the chrome and stainless trim is equally
Mechanically, this car is the real deal. The 8 cylinder engine is
beautifully painted, and has seen only 1,250 miles since the restoration.
The engine bay is exceptionally well detailed throughout. Ceramic coated
headers, MSD ignition, a high torque starter, aluminum radiator, single
plane polished aluminum intake, oversized water pump pulley and stainless
fuel and cooler lines have all been included in the restoration.
Underneath, it's just as nice. The 700 R4 automatic transmission feeds a
3:73 posi-traction, powder coated, rear end. New 2.5" Exhaust, power front disc brakes and a park
brake, cross dilled rotors, QA1 adjustable shocks and lowering spindles are
also present. The restorer went through and had the control arms, front
wheel wells and the frame all powder coated as well. This is a car that
drives exactly the way a new car would have in 1968. The rear wheels are
Budnik 20" wearing 275/35/ZR20 tires, and the fronts are Budnik 18" with
235/40/ZR18 tires. 248-974-9513
The black leather interior is very well done. The front bucket seats and
the back bench seat are both in near perfect condition. The center console
with wood grain detail is beautiful as well. It is also equipped with an
AM/FM radio, tilt wheel and seatbelts. Door panels, carpets, and the white
vinyl convertible top, are all in excellent condition.
Calling this a nice car just doesn't do it justice. This is a gorgeous car
with an impeccable pedigree and a huge helping of performance thrown in
just for fun. This is an investment-grade automobile, and at this price,
you couldn't duplicate the restoration on this car. It's in a league of its
own among early Firebirds. Call today, because like its GTO cousin, this
one won't stay long! 248-974-9513
