Description

1967 Pontiac Firebird Convertible---400CI/325HP. This car is a true show stopper!
Background. I am the 3rd owner and have owned this car for 11 years. The prior owner (also in Boulder, CO) owned the car for over 30 years. The car was originallysold in the Bay Area of California. This car is largely original---never in an accident and is rust free. It has spent a majority of the last 40 years in a garage, only venturing out for occasionalcruise nights and auto shows. The prior owner only sold it to me after I promised not to 'compromise' its original character.
The car was taken down to the metal in 2008/2009 (documented with PPG Poly undercoating and primer/powdercoat frame) and still sports its factory color of Regimental Red. (Code R1) The Parchment interior and power convertible top make this a real head turner. The car also has the rare (and working) factory Rally Guages!
The engine is a 400 CU / 325 HP V8 and was rebuilt by the priorowner (I have probably put less than 600 miles on the car in 11 years). It starts reliably (thanks to the Pertronix Ignitor instead of points) and runs amazingly strong. Power Convertible Top / Power Steering / Power Brakes / Automatic Transmission.
The engine is not original (YT Code) to the car (I have the original build sheet from under the back seat and the PHS documentation). I researching the car's pedigree, I found the originalowner's name and address taped to the back of the (still working) console clock----it must have been out for a repair at some point). I was able to track down the daughter of the owner, and she recalled that the dealer swapped out the engine shortly after her father purchased the car---she couldn'trecall why. The SN of the engine traces back to a 1967GTO (YS Code) and had a Pontiac Rebuild Tag affixed to block.
The factory hood tach still works (rebuilt by the TachMan), although I wouldn'trelyon it to set the timing. I once received additionalpoints in a show after proving to the judge it was operational.
The car will press you back into the seats and sounds incredible. They just don't make cars like this anymore...

Non-Original Items:
The Firebird has a functional aftermarket Ram-Air setup (the original air cleaner is in the trunk).15" Rally Sport wheels with Redline tires (the car originally had 14" wheels)Pertonix Ignitor Ignition (instead of points)Aftermarket steering wheel (original needs the clear acrylic refurbished and is in the trunk)SecretAudio Hidden Radio (the car still has the original Delco AM Radio). Now you can listen to MP3's and not just fuzzy AM sports talk. Upgraded dash speaker.Nixon / Agnew bumpersticker (magnetic, so it peels if you need to change political party affiliation).SpaceSaver Spare and inflator. The car originally had a full-size spare, but this looks much cooler and gives you some trunk room tocarry back all your trophiesand awards!
Things that need attention:
The car is surprisinglysolid, and there is not much given she's 50 years old! The Items that are still on my punch list:
The inside drivers' door handle needs the set screw (I leave it off so I can adjust the handle and make it easier to get my big paw in).The transmission shifter will not manually shift into low. It feels like the linkage is binding in the console shifter, but I haven'tgotten around to looking at it. The 350 Turbo Transmission works perfectly and smoothly shifts between all gears.
Some small/light scratches on the passenger window glass near the door lock (I tried to take a photo but it wouldn't show up on the picture).
The originalDelco radio will power on (I have it disconnected so I wouldn't accidentally drain the battery) but doesn'treally get any stations---not that it matters.
The car comes with a binder of receipts, documentation, and a ton of Firebird memorabilia.
My wife informed me that I have a 1 classic car limit (who knew?) and I just don't drive the Firebird as much as she needs. This car deserves someone that appreciates originality and will continue the Pontiac legacy.
