My 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle. Has a fuel injected 502ci. Installed Wilwood brakes, electric cutouts, billet hood hinges, and pretty much anything under the hood that’s chrome in the 5+ years I’ve owned it. Love going to car shows with my husband (he owns a 1957 Nomad).
Last year, my wife asked what I wanted for my upcoming 50th birthday.
Jokingly, I replied, "A '69 'Vette" expecting a quick "No, really?"
She said "Ok, start looking."
Found this one a few months later. According to the paperwork, it was assembled the day before I was born.
It was, indeed, a happy birthday.
1967 Firebird 400 numbers matching, lotsa factory options. 3 year (I work slower than I used to) total restoration to factory stock was finished in June 2019. Originally sold in Cincinnati, spent years in Tennessee, found it for sale beside the road just north of our house in Michigan - looking neglected, repainted white with black top but all there. Told my wife I wasn't looking for it, it found me. Not sure she believed me as it has happened a few times before. I have been a Pontiac nut since my first one - 70 TA that I bought new in 1970.
It has a total of 32 factory options , including rare (or at least uncommon) cruise control, disc brakes, headrests, folding rear seat, A/C, power windows, tilt wheel and much more. Somebody back in 1967 got carried away with the options list - they were only a couple of small items short of all that were possible on a single car. Takes a 2 page window sticker to list them all.
