Here is a classic car from the very beginning of the era of the Firebird. This is an early production Firebird, and although it is not equipped exactly as it left the factory this is a very nice car with some cool upgrades, and lots of documentation.
This Firebird was actually the 140th vehicle to roll off the production line, and with such a low production number, it could've been a car produced on the first day of production. This car is one of 9,229 326ci V8 equipped Firebirds that rolled off the line for the '67 Model year. PHS Documentation shows that the car was originally delivered to and owned by Pontiac Motor Division.
Inside the car, the interior is finished in the correct factory color of black. (Code 259) Bucket seats finished in vinyl, wood trim on the dashboard, Hurst shifter, and wood shift knob are a few highlights of the interior. The exterior shows very well on the car thanks to a recent repaint in the original color of Cameo Ivory (code: C). Exterior trim, bumpers, and lights are all in great condition. Our favorite part of the exterior is the hood tach - it is something that is not noticeable at first glance, but is definitely a cool retro feature. The hood tach was a factory option even on the early Firebirds.
This Firebird originally rolled off the factory floor equipped with a 326ci V8 and a 3-speed column shift manual transmission. This car is now powered by a 455ci V8 mated to a Muncie M20 4 speed manual transmission. A small bump in displacement which also means a bump in horsepower. A 4BBL carburetor, Edelbrock Intake Manifold, polished valve covers, and fully painted block and heads are highlights of the engine. The engine bay is tidy, and the “455 HO” decal on the air cleaner is the icing on the cake.
This early production Firebird definitely has a cool factor to it thanks to the hood mounted tach, a 455ci V8 w/4 Speed, and a recent repaint. The early production number is an added bonus.
