For Sale: 1968 Pontiac Firebird in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1968 Pontiac Firebird is a numbers-matching V8 cruiser. It has a truly classic appeal where everything you see - from the coordinated color theme to working AM radio - drives home the attitude of a proper vintage driver.

The color theme works well for this car. The trim tag tells us it's wearing its correct Mayfair Maze. It's not a muscle car color like red or black, so it sets the tone right for a cool and classic cruiser. That's because this one is a true vintage coupe that has terrific paperwork and it was even issued an actual miles title in 2022. As you look over the whole car, it tells you how much it likes to stay in touch with its roots. The paperwork shows it was restored around 1995, but they utilized a single-stage application to give it a look closer to the classic lacquer finish. It continues to have a nice soft glow in the sunshine that reminds you that Pontiacs were not only performance-bred but premium, too. This up-scale feeling is continued on the originally optioned black vinyl roof. But more than just a great color combo, you love that these first-gen Firebirds were an instant classic thanks to the bold styling. It starts up front with the unique chrome bumper that gives the whole front end of Pontiac's wide-track look. Good bodywork helps make sure items like the crease that runs from nose to tail are crisply defined, and you recognize the faux vents in the quarter panels are a cool contrast that helps break up the otherwise smooth sheet metal. This one is great, right down to the details, like the redline tires. And we like how this still keeps the classic hubcaps but paints them black to coordinate with the roof.

Another great premium touch is when the vinyl roof is also a preview of the interior color. The black interior appears neatly done from the noted restoration and carries an exceptional factory correctness level. You paid a bit more for a Pontiac back in the day, so it's nice to still see it now with welcomed extras like the wood appearance on the dash and the desirable center console with floor shift. And you'll appreciate the little things like the working AM radio and the dome light that greets you when the door opens. The front bucket seats, crisp gauges, and classic grippy steering wheel have the right mix of nostalgia and cruiser fun.

Under the hood is a beautifully presented way to showcase a factory-like style. It starts with the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. The block and valve covers glow from within the dark engine bay thanks to a clean application of the correct Pontiac turquoise. And we know you love this down to the details, like the factory air topper with the "Keep your GM car all GM" decal (other car guys love that kind of thing, too.) The motor hasn't been just well cared for on the outside. The way this one fires up with confidence and runs smoothly lets you know this original V8 has received the proper maintenance over its lifetime, too. The numbers-matching three-speed automatic transmission is a smooth shifter with excellent easy-driving features like power steering and brakes.

The sale comes with terrific paperwork like the factory buildsheet, original bill of sale, owner's manual, build receipts, and restoration photos. This is a very cool V8 classic Firebird with a classy and original-style presentation. So if you want to be both vintage and distinct, you need this Pontiac in your life. Call now!
