4610 Pet Lane
A sharp-looking exterior, a bold red A/C interior, and extra power from the V8 all come together to deliver an impressive package on this 1968 Pontiac Firebird.
The red paint is an upgrade later in life that uses a clearcoat application to deliver the kind of look that knows how to radiate on a sunny day. And these '68 Firebirds want to be impressive. The unique front chrome bumper surrounds the grille while giving this Firebird a beak-like front end. This style point is highlighted further as it meets the tip of the hood's tapering power bulge. The silhouette offers crisp and clean lines while also have a hint of kick-up at the wheel wells to accent the Firebird's performance nature. And just because they knew some people have been dreaming about a coupe like this since they were a kid, there's a set of Hot Wheels style US Mags alloys. And the more aggressive 17/18 inch front/rear stance gives this the look of a proper performance machine.
The factory-correct red interior joins the upgraded exterior paint to give this a very cool all-red presentation. This has the right mix of originality and investments. So, this has seen some updating, like the fresh carpeting. But we also like that it keeps classic pieces, including the wood-like trim on the center console and the first Firebird logo is still in the center of the steering wheel. This coupe was built to be a cruiser. That's why you have the comfortable bucket seats up front and a Retrosound AM/FM digital tuner with aux input for you iPod (it even has a cool reproduction factory tag.) Plus, the climate control has now been adapted to deliver air conditioning with modern R134a refrigerant.
Nestled within the tidy inner walls of the engine bay is the light blue block that symbolizes proper Pontiac power. This is an era-correct 350 cubic-inch V8, but you can also instantly see they made recent investments in upgrades. It now has an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock hi-rise Pontiac Performer intake, and ceramic-coated Dougs headers that add to the power while also giving a sweet sound to the dual exhaust. Front disc brakes and the grip of modern ZR-rated tires are nice upgrades to help you enjoy the car's added power out on the road. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and the two-speed automatic transmission make this a fine all-around cruiser.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual. It all makes for a terrific package that expertly mixes vintage with the right upgrades. So if you want it all, call today!
