The Pontiac Firebird was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors between 1967 and 2002. The Firebird was introduced the same year as its platform-sharing cousin, the Chevrolet Camaro. This coincided with the release of the 1967 Mercury Cougar which shared its platform with another pony car, the Ford Mustang.
The Pontiacs were, for the most part, powered by various V8 engines of different GM divisions. While primarily Pontiac-powered until 1977, Firebirds were built with several different engines from nearly every GM division until 1982 when all Pontiac engines were dropped in favour of corporate units.
Restored meticulously over a five year period to a prize winning standard, including winning the Tatton Park Classic American Show two years running, this 1968 Firebird 350 has had thousands of pounds spent and hours upon hours of time put into creating an outstanding muscle car. Described by the owner as driving and sounding just as it should, it turns heads wherever it goes and does not disappoint.
Subject to a rebuilt 350 motor and TH400 transmission with quick shift upgrade, this Firebird also has up rated suspension and shocks, rack and pinion steering, four wheel disc brakes, new exterior chrome and brightwork, stainless steel brake and cooler lines and a two inch Flowmaster exhaust. The new black leather interior trim is complemented by tinted glass and the whole package is sitting on 18x8 FRT and 18x9.5 rear Boss chrome wheels.
This example is truly one of the best examples we have ever seen; if you do not believe us, seek out the forthcoming feature in Classic American magazine.
