Gateway Classic Cars is proud to offer an very unique 1968 Pontiac Firebird Sprint. Many wouldn’t look twice at a Firebird with a six cylinder, but in the case of the Firebird Sprint, Pontiac made quite an interesting six cylinder package. The idea came from Pontiac executive John Z. Delorean. Yes, the same Delorean that dreamed up the gull winged stainless steel icon that eventually went back in time. Delorean pushed the idea of a compact six because it kept the front end weight down and allowed for a better handling vehicle. This was not the economy based inline sixes American cars typically had in the day. This was a 250 CID (4.1 Liter) Overhead Cam inline six. The engine was equipped with a four barrel Rochester Quadrajet carburetor which brought the horsepower rating up to 215 on cars with an automatic transmission. Just under 2,000 Firebird Sprints were ever ordered, and less than 500 came with an automatic transmission. This particular Sprint is equipped with the 2 speed Power glide transmission. With power steering, power brakes, and a smooth running and quiet engine, this car is a dream to drive. The exterior is finished in green with a black vinyl top. Couple that with a set of Pontiac rally wheels and you have one sweet looking Pontiac. This one is amazingly only on its third owner since new, and the odometer is believed to be original mileage at 113,432. The vehicle has clearly been well cared for over the years, and should be ready for many more years of enjoyment. This would be a great entry level classic for someone new to the hobby, but would be at home in an avid collectors garage as well. Located in our St. Louis Showroom, this 1968 Pontiac Firebird Sprint can be seen including 100+ HD pictures and video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
