Classic Parking: 1968 Pontiac Firebird

The first generation Pontiac Firebird is the strange result of a mid sixties project run by John Z DeLorean known as the Banshee.  The two-seat fiberglass roadsterconcept was built using bits of the ’64 Tempest and an inline-6, but the production version would have stolen sales from Chevy’s Corvette, so the GM brass gave Pontiac their own version of the Camaro pony car…and from the ashes of the canned Banshee, the Firebird was born.  Find this 1968 Pontiac Firebird offered for $15,000 located in SF Bay Area, CA.  Tip from FuelTruck.

This is normally where I start raving about the car or the price or whatever…but I’m going to add a word of caution on this one — this seems to be a very VERY reasonable price for a 1st gen Firebird with a decent paint job and a slew of aftermarket parts.   Tread very carefully because this could be a scammer…or it could be a sweet deal from a seller who just wants out of his Poncho.

And what a Poncho it is!!  Under the hood is a 455 cubic inch V8, which isn’t original, but should provide plenty of pomp for any circumstance.  The underhood setup includes an aluminum radiator, some fancy-pants polished master cylinder, and way more money sunk into this bird than you’d expect for the asking price.
