Auction Block: 1968 Pontiac Firebird

There’s a wide spectrum of complexity and commitment when it comes to pony car restoration projects, but very seldom do restomod jobs snowball into the level of involvement seen on this 1968 Pontiac Firebird build. Born out of more than 4,500 man-hours of labor — which is pretty insane, considering the average American works around 2,000 hours a year — this painstakingly pieced together Pontiac is now slated to go under the hammer at Barret Jackson’s upcoming 2020 Palm Beach Auction.

This first-generation Firebird packs a 6.2L LS3 V8 with all-new internals, a GM 6L90 automatic six-speed, and a cool 550 horses that sing through a pair of ceramic-coated Sanderson headers capped off with a custom exhaust. The ’68 specimen also benefits from top-shelf Baer brakes and Detroit Speed suspension. Riding on a set of custom Rushforth Concept rims, it also features bespoke bodywork with an entirely redesigned front-end with a one-off bumper, splitter, LED headlights, and mesh grille. The exterior is also adorned in a special PPG metallic finish dubbed “Viva La Red” that matches the engine covers and intake tubes under the hood. The modified muscle car’s interior has been largely modernized with seats from a 2006 GTO, plus contemporary center console, and instrumentation.
