PHS DOCUMENTED, #'S MATCHING 400CI, NICE RED PAINT, GREAT COLOR COMBO
Restored cars like this 1967 Firebird 400 convertible are probably the best way to enjoy a vintage muscle car. It's got a great pedigree with a matching-numbers engine, but someone else has already done the heavy lifting: great paint, nice interior, and a full PHS package. If you like the look on this one, you'll love how it drives.
There's no sneaking around in a Firebird convertible painted bright, which looks pretty close to code R Regimental Red, a correct 1967 color. It's really nicely done, too, on a body that has been restored but not modified, so that means no deck lid spoiler or other add-ons, just a clean F-body that looks like a million bucks. Of course, with good looks like this, you don't really need to do more than make sure the gaps are tight, the panels are straight enough to measure with a ruler, and use some care putting it all together so the doors close with a gentle push instead of a violent slam. Correct hood scoops and a hood-mounted tach give it plenty of personality, and with the top down, there's nothing that can out-shine this car out on the road. The cool chrome bumper that also forms the grille looks like it's been to the plater's shop not too long ago and only the discreet '400' emblem on the trunk warns onlookers of what's underneath, making even this bright red ragtop a bit of a sleeper.
The black bucket seat interior is neatly done and pretty much conforms to the factory specifications. A 3-spoke steering wheel frames the deeply recessed gauges, but since they only cover the barest of minimums (speed and fuel level), a trio of auxiliary gauges was wisely installed just ahead of the shifter. A center console is a welcome upgrade, and as was Pontiac's fancy, it offers a bit of an upscale vibe with the woodgrained center stack, and while the original radio still lives in the dash, a powerful Secret Audio AM/FM stereo has been stashed in the glove box with a CD changer in the trunk. And speaking of the trunk, it's nicely outfitted with a correct mat, space-saver spare tire, and a complete jack assembly. Overhead, there's a new black power convertible top that moves effortlessly and hides under a matching black vinyl boot.
The engine is the original, numbers-matching 400 cubic inch V8, which was the biggest engine available in an F-body at the time. With legendary Pontiac torque and durability, it makes the compact Firebird a legitimate threat on the street. Rebuilt to stock specifications, it is neatly detailed with Pontiac Turquoise paint, chrome valve covers and a louvered air cleaner just like its big brother the GTO. They took no liberties with specifications here, and instead decided to keep it mostly stock. A 3-speed TH400 automatic transmission is up to the abuse and feeds a 10-bolt rear end with a set of reasonable gears inside that cruise easily. Dual exhaust with mellow-sounding mufflers gives it a sound to match its flashy appearance, and shiny Cragar wheels with fat 225/60/15 front and 235/60/15 rear BFG radials add to the eye appeal.
Documented with PHS paperwork, this is the kind of car you can buy with confidence and enjoy without worries, because it'll always be worth at least as much as you paid for it. Call today!
