This 1968 Pontiac Firebird Convertible is what a cool custom classic are all about. There's slick blue paint, terrific bodywork, an A/C interior, fresh components everywhere (even under the car), four-wheel disc brakes, an overdrive transmission, and much more. And the rumble you here comes from upgraded fuel-injected power.
This droptop announces it's something special from the moment it comes into view. The blue they chose was borrowed from the Dodge Viper, and it the kind of luster that radiates the sunlight (perfect for a sunshine-friendly convertible.) But the appeal of this one goes much further than picking the right color. You can tell they invested plenty of time and money making sure the best vintage elements look great, like the form-fitting rear bumpers, dual Ram Air hood scoops, and a crisp point that's front and center. And speaking of the front end, these '68 Firebirds are legendary for that full chrome beak, and so we love that it looks terrific on this one. And those polished 18-inch five-spoke wheels with extra wide rear tires do a nice job of hinting at all the other performance upgrades in the car.
If you like the way the crisp white convertible top looks against the blue, then you'll love taking it down to reveal the full parchment white interior. Once inside, you'll see this is all about being secretly rewarding. For example, the front bucket seats have a classic look, but they have more modern bolstering to really keep you comfortable. There's even a cup holder armrest console in-between. Also, the center console and dash might have the vintage wood-like look, but now it houses the Rertosound AM/FM stereo w/Bluetooth and the controls for the R134a air conditioning. The thoughtfulness of this build even extends to the trunk where there's plush blue carpeting surrounding the custom amp and subwoofer enclosures. You get a grippy sports steering wheel on an upgraded tilt column, and there's a full set of Dakota Digital gauges – and it all gets your senses ready for an upgraded performance car experience.
One look under the hood, and you know they gave the best to this custom. You're looking at a 350 cubic-inch LT1 V8 borrowed from a Camaro and completely rebuilt in 2014. When they invested in this motor, they gave it an award-worthy shine with the valve covers, pulleys, brackets, master cylinder, and much more. Plus, this fuel-injected V8 inhales deeply thanks to a cold air kit. It creates a mighty package that gives a sweet sound out of the MagnaFlow dual exhaust. But more than just powerful, this is a terrific all-around classic. That's why the 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission was freshly rebuilt within the last year to deliver reliable overdrive comfort. Plus, you have an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep this running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. There's also all the right driving features, like power steering, a limited-slip rear end, sway bars front & rear, and a four-wheel disc brake upgrade.
