This 1968 Pontiac Firebird convertible has solid V8 power, four-on-the-floor, and a cool blue style inside and out. It's a total package that is fun for driving and looks terrific out in the sunshine. So if you want to cause envy just by arriving, read on.
This was born a desirable Alpine Blue convertible, and there was even a respray later in life that added a modern metallic element. It makes for a quality appearance that loves to radiate extra bright when the sunshine hits the sheet metal. This glossy paint goes well with the full brightwork package - especially the hallmark full chrome front end with a distinct point that gives this Firebird a true beak-like appearance. That unique front end is what helped establish the Firebird as both a distinct and sporty car. And the hint of aggression continues with the chin spoiler, rear spoiler, and Rally II wheels with raised white letter tires. And while most convertibles look best with the top down, we can't help but be attracted to the way the crisp white top against the blue gives this all the appeal of an ocean wave.
While we like the way the roof looks, it powers down to reveal an even more impressive interior. After all, blue on the outside and teal on the inside give this a very distinct blue-on-blue style. And the trim tag tells us the car was born this way. The overall impression is both vintage and useful with details like the vintage upholstery pattern and the black carpeting that shows less dirt and wear. A detailed classic style means the little things, like working courtesy lights and nice walnut-style paneling throughout the center console. Plus, a Retrosound AM/FM stereo w/Bluetooth input looks correct while offering the best in modern driving music. And the driving experience is upgraded with features like a second-gen Trans Am sports steering wheel, auxiliary readouts under the dash, and a Hurst shifter.
The engine bay has an attractive style with some added polish and newer components like the hoses. It makes this 350 cubic-inch Pontiac V8 look like a well-respected road-ready car. And the way this fires up and runs reaffirms it. Plus, everything from the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor to the newer aluminum radiator gives this a solid cruiser feeling. And we know you love taking proper control with the four-speed manual transmission. There's also power steering, power brakes, and front discs for a nice driver for short or long trips.
This is a great-looking classic drop-top that knows how to put a smile on your face just by the way it drives and the way you know all eyes are on you at every stop light. Call today!!!
