It's a really good all around car with original or NOS panels. No overseas body parts!
Photos added of car in it's factory condition as picked up. A quote from the second owner " The car was purchased from it's original owner in 1994 from Tim Newslow in Pitsfield, Mass. I picked it up at the local airport where it was in storage beside his airplane. I found it in Hemmings Motor News, there was no internet back then. "
added some photos of the engine rebuild, pendulum undercut counterbalance on the crank, and cnc edelbrock heads...no expense spared.... If you can get rubber to the road it will beat a hellcat....but you'll have to be good with a gas pedal.
You can have this for much less than I have invested.
The Pick of the Day hones in on the coolness factor
With the introduction of the Chevrolet Camaro in 1966, followed one year later by its mechanical twin cousin, the Pontiac Firebird.
When you think about muscle cars and pony cars of the late 1960s, a 1969 Pontiac Firebird such as the Pick of the Day is not always one of the first cars that comes to mind.
It’s no surprise that John Z. DeLorean, who gave us the Pontiac GTO, wanted to do something different with the new Firebird being offered by his Pontiac Division of General Motors.
Mecum Auctions rolls into Southern California on Thursday for its annual three-day sale at the Anaheim Convention Center
I’ve spent far longer then I care to admit staring at the Pick of the Day car, a 1968 Pontiac Firebird, trying to think of something smart and interesting to say about it.
Still steamed that you missed out on that 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, the Smokey and the Bandit promo car that sold at Barrett-Jackson?
