1968 Pontiac Firebird Sprint (4 BBL OHC 6 CYL)

My 1968 OHC Firebird "Sprint", with automatic transmission, is for sale. I originally bought and took delivery of this car on February 22, 1968. Because I was only 17½ at the time, the dealer – Dexter Pontiac-GMC, Inc, of San Rafael, California – would/could not sell the car to me in my name, so it was originally registered in my father’s name. My car has not been driven in about 20 years, it does not run now; but it has been in my garage, out of the weather, for all this time. I always thought I would get around to getting it reconditioned, but I have come to accept that I am not the one to do it.

I have quite a bit of original documentation including the following:

--- window sticker and dealer’s additional equipment sticker
--- Dexter Pontiac – GMC Inc Motor Vehicle Purchase Order
--- Pontiac Motor Division Owner Identification and New Vehicle Warranty
--- Pontiac warranty book (including all validation coupons) and the embossed Protect-O-Plate
--- ’68 Pontiac Owner’s Manual
--- Original ignition and trunk keys on a complimentary, period Pontiac key ring/fob

Here is some information I found on the internet about the Sprint engine:

"In the mid 60s Pontiac executive John DeLorean wanted to produce a car that could be marketed against the European sports car imports. His decision was to use the Tempest and LeMans chassis and build on that platform. At the heart of this package was a new overhead cam 6 cylinder engine. This motor was revolutionary in its day because not only was it the first American mass produced overhead cam engine, but it also was the first engine to use a reinforced rubber cam timing belt which is standard in most modern cars. The ohc-6 was used in an effort to keep the front-end lighter which provides better handling and quicker steering response. Unlike the standard ohc-6 engine, the "Sprint ohc-6" was outfitted with numerous factory performance upgrades."

Thanks for your interest.
