For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our Houston showroom is this 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400. Wrapped in a gorgeously deep red hue, and topped by a black vinyl top that is in great shape, this 'Bird will turn heads! This Firebird 400 for sale is powered by a 400 CID Pontiac big block V8, so this bad boy has just the right amount of top end power and low-end grunt! Backing this beauty is a smooth shifting automatic transmission that was factory installed - somewhat of a rarity, as most 'Birds found themselves rolling off the line with manual transmissions. When you fire it up, you'll know you're in a muscle car, as its large tube headers funnel the exhaust out through a true dual exhaust system, complete with the '60's sound of cherry bomb-style mufflers. Inside, you'll find a nice black interior, complete with upgraded seating surfaces, original faux burl wood console, and well-kept carpeting, if you had one of these "back in the day", you'll feel like you're back! Piloting this street machine is easy and fun, thanks to the thick wood-rimmed steering wheel, extra gauges to keep tabs on things going on with the drivetrain, power brakes, and power steering: you'll probably want to drive this car every day. This car has the clean, crisp lines that made the '67 and '68 F-bodies so attractive to so many, and its panels are in great shape - this is one set of good bones. Options on this 1968 Firebird 400 for sale include a modern AM/FM/CD player head unit with AUX port, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Seat Belts, and Aluminum Alloy Cragar S/S wheels.
