In the muscle car world, there are Chevys and then there''s everything else. If you want something that delivers the performance but you don''t want to wear a bowtie, perhaps this 1967 Pontiac Firebird convertible will fit you better. With a snarky 326 cubic inch V8, an attractive color combination, and a top that goes down, this is a great car for the non-Chevy enthusiast. Code S Champagne paint only serves to emphasize this cars less-than-ordinary look. The overall shape may be familiar, but Pontiac''s special detailing made the Firebird stand out, and included things like the chrome-ringed split grille, hood-mounted tachometer, and slotted taillights that echoed its bigger brothers. They took their time on the repaint, too, because it shines up beautifully but has a careful look to it, as if they wanted to make sure all the little parts were just right before putting it all back together. It''s not perfect, of course, but between the unusual color and attractive shape, this is a very appealing car. There might be a bit more chrome on the Firebird than on its corporate cousin over at Chevrolet, and in particular the front bumper/grille assembly is in excellent shape, as is the rear bumper with its integral license plate frame. And, of course, all the usual Firebird badges are in place. Somehow, Pontiac managed to combine sport and luxury in a way no other automaker could. The all-business black interior, while highly functional, also looks stylish. New seat covers might be a bit similar to their F-body cousins, but the added definition at the top of the rear cushion would be a Pontiac performance look for the next decade. A woodgrained steering wheel adds some warmth to the all-black, interior and most of the important stuff is recent: seat covers, door panels, and carpets. Those appear to be original gauges, and while they may show a bit of age, they''re in otherwise good condition and include a neat clock down on the center console. An AM/FM radio is a modest upgrade over the AM unit that was also available, and in today''s world, it''s a welcome featured. The black convertible top was installed in the mid-2000s but seems immune to age and looks fantastic, especially with a crystal clear rear window. They also took the time to detail the trunk correctly with a reproduction mat and inflatable space-saver spare and jack assembly. Pontiac''s robust 326 cubic inch V8 gives the early Firebird fantastic punch around town and yes, this is the car''s original, numbers-matching engine. The engine bay is nicely detailed with Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block and chrome valve covers to add some sparkle. An Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor might free up a few extra ponies and the twin Flowmaster mufflers underneath give the 326 a unique sound. A sturdy TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds the original 10-bolt rear end and while the chassis isn''t detailed, this remains the kind of car that you can jump in and head across country without a second thought. Old-school Torque Thrusts are a nice touch and carry big 215/70/14 white-letter radials that truly fill the fenders. So if you want to stand out without investing in something obscure, this Firebird convertible makes a compelling argument. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
