CAR BUT IT WAS IN PERFECT CONDITION.IT WOULD PROBABLY BE WORTH $20,000.TODAY.I COULD NOT STAND THE 6 CYL. POWER OF THE STANG SO I BROUGHT HOME MY FIRST FIREBIRD.IT WAS A 67 H.0. MODEL,IT CAM FROM THE FACTORY WITH A 326,4 SPD STICK,HURST SHIFTER,TRACTION BARS, AND TACH ON THE HOOD.I PAID $700. FOR IT IN '77.THIS IS NOW PROBABLY THE RAREST OF THE FIREBIRDS,ALONG WITH THE 69 TA.AFTER THE 67 WAS IN A BAD ACCIDENT I SOLD IT FOR $1200.IN 1991 I GOT A 69 LEMANS SPORT COUPE.IT CAME WITH PWR BRAKES,PWR STEERING,AIR,TINTED WINDOWS,CONSOLE,CRUISE,ALL OF THESE THINGS WERE RARE TO SEE IN SUCH A MID LEVEL CAR.IT WAS NOT FAST ENOUGH SO I BROUGHT HOME THE CAR I DRIVE NOW,MY 68 FIREBIRD.I GOT IT FOR $1200.IN 1993.I HAD A 383 CHEV BUILT FOR IT,TH 400,410 POSI.THE BODY AND PAINT WERE DONE IN 1995.I BUILT THE NEW MOTOR IN MY GARAGE IN 06.NOW IT ROCKS!
