This is a 2-door 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 hardtop coupe finished in Verdoro Green (paint code #WA3771) over a Parchment white interior. It is powered by a 400 cubic inch big block V8 paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. The first generation Pontiac Firebird was built on GM’s F-body platform and intended to compete with the Ford Mustang pony car. This example came to the seller by way of a collector who claimed it to be a numbers matching car. This Firebird is currently registered in Alberta with a clean and (Normal) status, having fully passed an AMVIC inspection. 3M wrap, ceramic coating, and financing are offered by the seller.
For US bidders, this Firebird is directly importable without modification as it is EPA & DOT exempt being greater than 25 years old. For more information on transport/import please visit our Transport/Import page here.
This Firebird 400 has coke-bottle styling in the same vein as the Chevrolet Camaro, with a chrome split grille and round quad headlamps. Firebird script and a bird emblem adorn the front fenders, with 400 script found on the ram air intakes on the hood. The car is fitted with a black air dam and a body coloured rear spoiler. Six horizontal louvers and red V-shaped Pontiac Arrowheads accent the rear quarters, and the tail lights are designed as stacked slits. Polished 15” American Racing wheels wear BF Goodrich Radial All Terrain tires, 215/60R15 up front and 295/50R15 at the back. The car is equipped with power steering and braking is managed by power-assisted 9.5 inch four-wheel drums.
The Parchment white interior is said to have been restored to original specifications, with sport seats up front, a rear bench seat, and matching door panels and headliner. Features include burled wood grain appliques on the dash and centre console, a heater-defroster, an optional AM radio, a Pioneer stereo head unit installed inside the locking glove compartment, and a Hurst shifter mounted in the console. Also located on the console, an analog clock that the seller shares is a rare option, though non-functioning. A three-spoke Firebird branded steering wheel fronts gauges set within deep eyebrows, a 160 mph speedometer to the left and a fuel gauge to the right. Aftermarket Bosch gauges monitoring temperature, voltage, and oil pressure have been installed below. Steering is a recirculating ball design. In 1968, the front vent windows were removed in favour of a full pane of glass and a fresh air inlet system that the company called Astro Ventilation.
This RWD Pontiac Firebird 400 is powered by a 400 cubic inch big block V8 paired with a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission. This 6.6-liter Ram Air V8 was factory rated at 335 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 430 lb-ft of torque at 3,300 rpm when new. The Firebird uses independent ball joints and coil springs for the front suspension and a Hotchkiss leaf-spring and staggered shocks supporting a semi-floating rear axle, with a Saf-T-Track limited slip differential.
