Launched in 1967, the first generation Firebirds featured distinctive coke bottle styling. Unlike their cousin, the Chevrolet Camaro that was unveiled the same year and shared the same platform, the Pontiac's front bumper was neatly integrated into the overall design. This mean-looking '68 model example was manufactured in late '67 and first UK registered in February 2016. Its mouth-watering specification includes: brand new old stock 7550cc (455ci) engine, Turbo 400 transmission with B&M shifter, limited slip differential, and line-lock system, for which there are over £25,000 worth of invoices from the renowned Pontiac specialists Butler Performance of Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. 'FMA 284F' is finished in Dark Metallic Blue teamed with a Black interior, rides on Crager SS wheels (15x10 rear/14x7 front), and is classed by the vendor as having 'excellent' bodywork, paintwork, V8 engine and transmission, and 'very good' interior trim. This rare and exciting pony car is now offered complete with massive history file and 'no advisory' MOT until July 2018.
