This 1967 Pontiac Firebird convertible is a true purple people eater. With four-on-the-floor and a 455+ cubic-inch punch under its pointed hood, it might look handsome, but its also one quick droptop.
There's no sneaking around in a Firebird convertible painted Plum Mist. This was on the factory color list in '67, but it's exceptionally more striking than what they could do back then. It's dripping with the kind of clearcoat shine that rivals chrome bumpers and trim. And speaking of the brightwork, don't you just love how the integrated pointed front bumper gives the '67 Firebird a true beak-like appearance? A convertible that has been restored but not modified means no deck lid spoiler or other add-ons, just a clean F-body that looks like a million bucks. Of course this one can still get a bit boisterous with cool factory elements like the hood scoops, red side stripes, and Rally II wheels with PMD (Pontiac Motor Division) center caps.
Underneath the new black folding roof is a black bucket seat interior that has been nicely restored to appear like you're driving out of the Pontiac showroom in 1967. It feels so authentic right down to the heat/defrost control and factory AM radio in the wood paneling dash. But what you'll really enjoy is the muscle car feeling that comes from the deep black seats, door panels, and carpeting. The three-spoke sports steering wheel with PMD horn cap is a great looking piece, and the Hurst shifter sticking out of the center console is just begging for your right hand.
When you open the hood, don't let the flash of the polished components keep you from discovering this Pontiac's secret. These first year Firebirds topped out at 400 cubic-inches. That was plenty of power, but this one hides an upgrade that comes from later in the muscle car wars. It's running an extremely desirable, monster 455ci V8 borrowed from a '70s Pontiac. And it doesn't stop there, because it also has been bored .30 over. That's a lot of American muscle for you to command, and everyone knows it thanks to the rumbling dual exhaust. Best of all, this Firebird give you complete command over the sound and fury of the big V8 thanks to the Super T-10 four-speed manual transmission. Add in the power steering, front disc brakes, and modern BF Goodrich T/As at all four corners, and this big motor ragtop is also a fine Sunday driver.
This Pontiac's great original looks are backed up by the owner's manual that's included with the sale. These first-year Firebirds are a rarity, especially when so nicely restored. So yes, you do need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
