1968 Pontiac Firebird HO description
When is the last time you saw one of these? This is not a barn find nor was this car driven by an executive of Pontiac. This is aprofessionally restored 1968Pontiac Firebird HO that was restored to factory specifications.
Special production, 1968 Pontiac Firebird 350 HO, 4 speed. In 1968, Pontiac had a big hit on their hands and made plenty of their popular Firebird 350 and 400’s. However, only 3,784 Firebird 350, 4 Speed HO’s were produced out of a total production run of 107,112 Firebirds for that year.
The 350 HO came with a unique camshaft and cylinder head combination to yield a factory rated 320 Horsepower. What is truly amazing is the first year production 400 Firebird HO only offered 5 more Horsepower (325) than this 320 Horsepower 350ci. In 1968 there was only a 10 HP difference in the 1968 400. This is not your common low compression Pontiac 350 that you see for sale where someone has taken a 350 2 barrel and bolted on a 4 barrel manifold. Some people have said that this was Pontiac's answer to the Camaro Z-28 which was first released in 1968. This is truly a rare and special package Firebird that represents only 3.2% of all the Firebirds sold that year.
The restoration of this car was done with extraordinary effort and expense put into the entire reconstruction of all components, including the paint and body. Great time and expense has been taken to ensure that every part of the drive train is not only factory original and matches the production VIN number but in addition, the operating components such as carburetor, alternator, starter, motor etc. are the correct production (part) number for this year and model Pontiac. This Firebird has it's original motor, transmission, rear end, quarter panels, fendersand carburetor. You will not see a finer example of this car even at Barrett Jackson.
The only deviation from the factory build sheet that you will find is the addition of front power disk brakes. This car comes with the full Pontiac Historic Services(PHS) documentation, photos during restoration and a 3 inch binder full of receiptsfrom work done to this car during and after restoration!
This is a rust-free, better than new example of a truly rare low mileage Pontiac. Documented true low mileage car with only 69,908 miles. Miles may increasea littlebecause on nice days, I can't stay away and just let it sit in the garage.
