1967 Pontiac Firebird Convertible
1967 Pontiac Firebird Convertible
A powerful rival for the Ford Mustang, the Pontiac Firebird saw daylight in 1967 when the US company rolled out both the 2-door coupe and the 2-door convertible. Even if it was based on the same platform as the Chevrolet Camaro, the Firebird had numerous different parts, starting with the design and ending with the engines. If the most significant appearance change is the body-integrated front bumpers, more differences could be found under the hood as the first generation Firebird came with a choice of many engines, from a 230ci inline 6 and a 400ci V8, producing 165 and 325 horsepower respectively.
For consignment, a project car if you will in need of some TLC on all fronts. The beauty of it is once you've given it the once over you will be the proud owner of a car that is something other than a Mustang or Camaro. Our consignor has owned this car since he was 16 years old and drove it sparingly for the first 3 years after purchasing it then it has sat in a garage ever since. Ripe for the picking, a chance to own a first year classic 1967 Pontiac Firebird
Dressed in red pigment, the coating is good however there are numerous areas of rub off, denting and some cracking of the paint. With close inspection there is very little rust to be seen, mostly faults in the paint. A white convertible top is on and moves up and down smoothly. It's clean and the rear plastic is clear. Chrome trimmings on the car are good and the design of the time used thin horizontal and vertical bars for the taillights and rear quarter accenting. Upfront a chrome surrounding grille bumper is on, and houses dual headlights and the iconic Pontiac beak is in the center. Steel wheels with no caps are now on all 4 corners.
Black vinyl covers the door panels and seats which are low back bomber style buckets up front and a rear bench. Seats are showing some cracking and wear. In the center is a stylish console that houses a long handle Hurst shifter. An inward angled dash has a wood appliqué center panel, and deeply inset round gauges in front of the driver. An aftermarket pointer AM/FM/Cassette player is now installed in the wood applique. Black carpeting is on the floors and a white vinyl tonneau covering is in the trunk.
A non-matching Pontiac 350ci V8 is under the hood and it is topped with a 2-barrel carburetor. There is a 4-speed Muncie now on the back, and a 10-bolt rear axle. The engine is showing some surface rust but has shiny valve coverings.
Some surface rust and an abundance of patina for the undercarriage is noted. It remains structurally sound, and has independent coil springs upfront and leaf springs on back. Drum brakes are all around.
This car does crank but will not start.
As noted, a car in need of some TLC but up to par, and with some work you'll have a true classic.
