1967 Pontiac Firebird Additional Info:

It's hard not to get excited about a 1967 Pontiac Firebird 400 convertible. Especially since Pontiac only built 7,526 droptops with the 400ci V8 and a four-speed. So nearly a half-century later, it's getting harder and harder to find examples that have been painstakingly restored to look this original. There's no sneaking around in a Firebird convertible painted Regimental Red. It's a bold package, which is what you want on a standout droptop like this. It has a nice shine that complements the first-gen Firebird's beak-like chrome nose and slotted trim that looks like a bird in flight. Good bodywork underneath helps to impress, too, including the crease that runs from nose to tail that's crisply defined. You'll see in the restoration photobook that a lot of care and investment has gone into keeping this convertible looking its muscle car best. And that's what owing a first year Firebird 400 is all about. It gets the period-correct aggression with the ram air hood, GTO-inspired taillights, Rallye II wheels w/correct PMD center caps, and even redline tires.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 is topped off with a Hurst shifter. Like a good sports car, the driver's focus is on the deep dual-pod gauges viewed through the original-style three-spoke steering wheel. Looking for a tach? This has one of Pontiac's ultra cool hood-mounted units. While the convertible keeps an authentic attitude, you're going to find some very nice upgrades, too. For example, the original AM radio is still in the center stack, but there's a more modern AM/FM/CD stereo hidden in the glovebox. Plus, the original vent controls are in place, but now modern R134a air conditioning is pumping into the car. This is particularly important, because you're going to love opening up to the world on a whim with the power folding roof, and now with the A/C, you can stay cool while looking cool.The top motor for the first-year Firebird was the 400 cubic-inch V8 borrowed from the GTO. You can tell money was spent here in the restoration, too. That's also why the motor fires up with ease, and the dual exhaust has the unmistakable rumble of a big displacement Pontiac. The engine bay looks immaculate and correct, which probably starts your mind racing about the kind of awards you can win just for this. But more than just looking great, this high-performance F-bird was made to drive. That's why you have the great control of a Muncie four-speed manual transmission, and that sends power to the stout 10-bolt rear end. This one also has power steering and power front disc brakes to keep a surefooted feeling on the road.This convertible comes with a huge file that includes Pontiac Historic Services (PHS) documentation, a restoration photo book, a ton of build/maintenance receipts, and plenty of promotional materials. It's a rare, and quality Firebird that's turnkey ready and nicely presented, which makes it a very hot commodity. Call today!!
