1968 Pontiac Firebird Coupe $27,895
1968 Pontiac Firebird
The Emerald Dragon
Recovered from Tokyo Japan in 2009, the Emerald Dragon is completely restored to its original condition. The Emerald Dragon is an outstanding example of the American Muscle Car, sharing its roots with the Chevrolet Camaro. With the current owner looking to start the next car project, The Emerald Dragon is ready for its new owner!
Pontiac introduced the Firebird in February 23, 1967 to compete with the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang. Firebird was marketed as an upscale pony car to complement the already popular GTO. Although the Firebird is less well-known than the Camaro, its unique styling cues and numerous engine options made it quite the performer on the street.
Many Firebirds look great, but few are true classics. The Emerald Dragon is a fully functional classic piece of Americana. Everything works, including the wipers, stereo, air-conditioning, bright beams, gauges . . . even the cigarette lighter. Total turn-key.

When looking at other Firebirds, beware that rear-spoilers, jacked tires and race center stripping are after-market and never installed on original Firebirds. Also, many Sprint H.O. Firebirds originally equipped with in-line 6-cylinder OHC engines, or 350 V-8 HO models, are now equipped with 400 hp after-market engines, yet retain the Sprint and H.O. stripping no longer reflecting an original configuration. Often these are used to dress up the car while masking the cars original design.
But The Emerald Dragon, less the visible Kicker speakers, reflects a true Firebird 350 model sold in 1968. Even the Kicker speakers can be replaced with OER speaker grills included with this car.
This 1968 Pontiac Firebird is a pleasure to drive. With front OER disc-style brakes, great audio, and freshened paint work (2014 and 2018), and only 2,492 miles since restoration this car is an original 1968 bird ready to roll!
Numerous hours by the owner, local mechanics and artisans went into this bringing this Firebird to its current mint condition. If you are looking to extensively modify, race or track this car, please keep looking but If you want an original Firebird for street cruising, daily driving, socializing at the local Pontiac/Chevy car club or competing at the local car show, this car is for you!
