1967 Pontiac Firebird

For the money, this might just be the finest 1967 Pontiac Firebird you can buy anywhere. The restoration is only just north of 1,000 miles old, the car is heavily optioned, and with a unique color combination and a thumping 400 cubic inch V8, it's as attractive as it is potent, making for a hobby car that does everything well.Pontiac was especially good at making even their pony car look like it was made for adults. This lovely Firebird has all the performance styling cues, ranging from the hood scoops to the ducktail spoiler out back, but the wonderfully subtle Montego Cream over Signet Gold color combination makes it look eminently tasteful. That is the car's original color combination and it was completely disassembled and stripped bare for the paint job. The result is a beautifully done car that sparkles in the sunlight and looks crisply rendered from any angle. It was finished about five years ago, so there are some very, very minor signs of use, but you can tell that this was an expensive makeover, not a quickie, and the car shows all the better for it. You'll also find that they spent the long dollar on the chrome and stainless trim, as everything from the unique front bumper and grille assembly to the slender slotted taillights remains in excellent condition. Fit and finish are quite good and you can't argue with just how right these early F-bodies look.The interior is beautifully rendered as well, using correct materials and patterns throughout. It appears that the door panels and maybe even the seats are original-issue, and if that's the case, they're in spectacular condition. The carpets have been replaced along the way and show only light wear, having been protected by a set of matching Firebird-logo mats. The factory gauges are bright and crisp, including the fully functional hood-mounted tachometer and a trio of auxiliary gauges standing on the transmission tunnel just under the center dash. That Hurst T-handle shifter is a period-correct accessory, but now it manages a Tremec 3550 5-speed manual gearbox that makes this car an absolute joy to drive. There's also a digital AM/FM stereo radio in the dash and yes, this is a factory A/C and the needs only a quick shot of R134a to be fully functional. An aftermarket center console adds a pair of handy cup holders and the trunk is correctly detailed with a reproduction mat and a space saver spare.Pontiac didn't do "matching numbers" in the traditional sense, but we have every reason to believe that the 400 cubic inch V8 under the pointed hood is original to this car. It was fully rebuilt in April 2015 with an .030 overbore, an 800 CFM Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, a matching intake manifold, MSD ignition system, and a balanced rotating assembly. It's crisply detailed with proper Pontiac Turquoise metallic paint, although the air cleaner is a cool aftermarket piece. The big radiator up front keeps it cool and there are new parts throughout, ranging from the chrome alternator to the new master cylinder for the power front disc brakes. Twin Flowmaster mufflers give it a fantastic sound and we've already mentioned the transmission upgrade (this car was originally equipped with a 3-speed manual). Out back there's a 10-bolt rear with 3.55 gears on a limited slip and there's plenty of proof that this car spent its life in a warm climate. Brand new staggered (18" front; 20" rear) American Racing Torque Thrusts currently sparkle on this car, but if you prefer a more subdued look, handsome Rally I wheels mounted on fresh redline radials come with the car as well.Early pony cars just don't get much better than this. Big power in a medium-sized package, plenty of luxury features, and a slick-shifting gearbox make this Firebird a joy to own. Call today!
