This 1967 Pontiac Firebird Sprint is an early production example of the car that launched the legend. And it only gets better when you look at its mix of solid restoration investments and interesting features (like the innovative OHC-six) that's all offered for an obtainable price.
This is the kind of car for those who want some special attention. After all, this is the first year for Firebirds, and this is #2,633 off the line. It was even in long-term ownership for over 35 years. That makes it quite significant to the those who appreciate low-numbers and uniqueness. That's also why you see it still presented in the factory-correct Linden Green paint. It has a nice presentation with plenty of gloss and shine. That's because the paint was professionally resprayed in 2014, and you'll also see more investments throughout this car to keep it a head-turning machine. The unique chrome front bumper shines bright to give the whole front end Pontiac's wide track look. The sheetmetal is quite straight, and that's accented further by the Sprint's white body stripe. And we all love the stance that comes from Pontiac's Rally II wheels.
The parchment interior is another nice touch. It has a bright presentation that was given a correct and quality replacement in 2005. You have all the best pieces with taut door panels, bucket seats up front, and black carpet that's hard to show dirt. Even the details are nice, like the wood-like trim and Fisher body seatbelts. The grippy three-spoke steering wheel and factory gauges give you the right classic experience. And because this one was also made to drive, you have the standard Hurst shifter and cleanly mounted auxiliary readouts (including a tach) under the dash.
While this Firebird already has plenty of vintage charm, your favorite part will likely be under the hood. John DeLorean had transformed Pontiac into an engineering-focused car company, and this 230 cubic-inch OHC inline-six motor is one of those achievements. So while there are many people out there over the years who have made a V8 swap, it has only made a distinct setup like this one an even rarer sight. Not only does it have a clean and crisp presentation, but also it was rebuilt only about 10k miles ago. So you'll love both showing and driving with this strong powerhouse. The Sprint setup has a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor on top, and you take full control thanks to power steering and the three-speed manual transmission. This was built for you to enjoy on the road, and so there have been the right investments over the last half-dozen years, including a new radiator, water pump, alternator, and electronic ignition upgrade. The suspension has been given a full front end rebuild, new brakes, and a versatile 3.55 rear end. The result is a truly distinct Firebird done with a solid driving package.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a highly authentic example of a first-year Firebird that has true rarity and distinction. So if you're looking to stand out in your classic coupe, don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
