This is my 1968 Firebird 400 which was sold new in Washington State where salt is not used on the roads so it is
virtually rust free. It has 63, 000 original miles with one repaint and otherwise very original. The vinyl top is
original and still looks excellent. The interior is completely original including carpet, door sill plates with
rivets, brake/accelerator pedal pads, etc and in excellent condition. The dash pad, console, door panels, etc. have
no cracks, marks or scratches. All of the glass is original including the outside mirror. The car has a
replacement carb, but I have a nice 1968 400 Firebird automatic carb to go with the car. The original washer pump
is installed, but there is a small aftermarket washer pump added to the car. I have not had time to restore the
original pump. After last tax season (I am a CPA), the gas gauge did not work, and I have not yet run down the
connection that needs to be cleaned. The car also has a repo front bumper. The original AC still blows cool air
and has its original sticker on the AC compressor. Except for the carb, the drivetrain is totally original
including the air cleaner, intake, heads, "born with" matching block, valve covers, idle stop solenoid, heat riser
shroud, bolts, nuts, washers, transmission, drive shaft, rear end, etc, etc, etc. I doubt the engine has ever been
apart so I suggest that the timing chain be replaced at some point. Correct 14X6 Rally II wheels are not original
but go with the car. The original deluxe wheel covers are included and have nice red centers as can be seen in the
picture. I have also included a picture of some parts that I will let go--repo vacuum kit, some clips, rubber
parts and an NOS master cylinder cap. An all cotton car cover is included.
This Firebird has been in an enclosed garage and covered most of its life. I included a couple of pictures under
the car. One of the pictures shows that the plate under the engine is not bent from having a jack placed under it.
Most Firebirds are bent in this area. The other picture shows a typical place on the underbody with no rusting .
The car has traveled less than 100 miles per year for many years. Several years ago, I traveled from North
Carolina to Washington State to buy this Pontiac due to its originality and excellent condition. It was brought
across the country in an enclosed trailer. I have only used alcohol free gas mixed with real lead and engine oil
containing zinc with additional zinc added at each oil change. I am as picky as anyone in the country when it comes
to maintaining an old Pontiac.
I have the Pontiac Historic Services info on the car. Options include: 400 4 BBL V8 (includes chrome air
cleaner/rocker covers/oil cap, dual exhaust, declutching fan, hood scoops, chrome “hockey sticks” in grill,
arrow head on front bumper), Hydra-Matic Transmission, AM Radio, Deluxe Wheel Discs, Deluxe Steering Wheel,
Console, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Soft Ray Glass—all windows, Bucket Seat Adjuster (extremely rare and
works), Custom Air Conditioning, Vinyl Top.
I entered it in one judged show at the General Greene Greensboro NC Chapter of AACA where it won a First. It would
probably not win a gold at a POCI convention because the engine has never been out to be detailed and the underside
and exhaust are not like new--just clean and rust free--except for the exhaust system. I am unsure if this is the
original exhaust on the car with a replacement muffler. Some interior pictures show a cover over the dash pad to
keep the pad cooler when outside.
