4610 Pet Lane
Here's one for the collector who likes to be a bit different. This 1968 Pontiac Firebird keeps its cool cruiser attitude, including a year-correct OHC motor still under the hood. It's a truly unique coupe that also knows how to sparkle in the sunshine.
Sure, Firebirds look good in red and black, but this one likes to be a bit more of a sophisticated standout. The Graphite Gray paint was an update later in life. It has the high gloss look of a quality application, and the metallic element in the finish gives it that added sparkle to attract attention on any sunny day. A straight body, clean lines, and complete trim really bring together an appealing package. Plus, these early cars launched the legend with an outstanding style with the chrome bumper dominating the front end, and the hood even is sharply pointed to emphasize the Firebird's beak.
The black bucket seat interior is neatly done and carries an exceptional level of factory correctness. You see it in the details, like the correct badging on the door panels, the three-spoke wheel with Firebird horn cap, and the hint of wood-like trim on the dash. And this also has one of our favorite Pontiac performance pieces, the hood-mounted tach. In fact, the only modern addition you may spot to this authentic and stylish interior is the retro-style AM/FM radio. It keeps the vintage look, but now you have a digital tuner for upgraded driving music... and that's ideal in a car that was certainly made to be a cruiser.
While this coupe 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 250 cubic-inch OHV 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 here an even rarer sight. That's why we're particularly happy to see a 1968-correct motor still in the engine bay today, and it has the tidy and bright look like it's ready to show off. This is also great for driving with the smooth nature of the inline-six. Plus, the automatic transmission, power steering, strong brakes, and brand new BF Goodrich redline tires make for an all-around nice classic cruiser.
It's hard to find a OHC Firebird with nice features and such a sharp style. So if you appreciate a truly distinctive classic, call today!
