1968 Pontiac Firebird



After a short first year, the 1968 Firebird continued to revel in its success, and with Pontiac’s, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach, not much was changed for the new year.

Federally mandated side marker lights were installed, and side window vents were eliminated, opting instead for GM’s “Astro Ventillation.”
