    That is cherry Mark, time capsule in the wrapper. I would imagine it is worth some serious coin!!

        Was not always that nice, but not that bad,don't forget I bought it 27 years ago but the car was then still a 26 year old vehicle from SW PA. So while it was a true survivor never molested it needed a full restoration which I did myself. Fortunatly at the time I could still buy lots of NOS parts.The interior is still original 1967 believe it or not with the exception of the carpet,headliner and dash pad. My current upcoming project will be to recover the seats as the foam is just deteriorating badly and springs in the drivers seat are not real good now. But I have ordered what I need to do it and keep it original as possible. Will be updating some pics on the interior as I am renewing only what is necessary.I like it original like it was built.

                  Lets get this section back on track.,it's about your street or classic car. Found a picture on photobucket of my interior. Seats dash and door panels are original 1967,gonna re do them this year though,worse than they look. Build sheet for the car say's it was built with a console. I have never had one in all the years I had the car. I just acquired an original one from ebay And will install when I redo seats and install a new Gold carpet like it was built.

                    Mark, pretty cool you are able to find the console and the history that it was born with one. Can’t wait to see the finished product.

                      One nice thing about restoring Pontiac's is we have PHS as a historical reference.

                      Nice car Mark!! My Pops has a 67 when I was a kid. A drunk destroyed it one night while we were all asleep.

                        Love those old Firebirds. Years ago I passed on a 67 Camaro and still regret it to this day. Had it been Firebird I would have bought it. I passed on it hoping to find a Firebird I wanted then life got in the way and prices are just insane now.

                        Why don't you drive it more?

                          I won't take it out unless the weather is nice,roads are dry. car has not seen rain in the 27 years I have had it. Plus I am in PA. so it is in the garage Nov-April.
                          Another thing is that when I am out I am constantly driving defensive,so many idiot's on the road,and it is all original or nos GM sheet metal that I am nervous out there. At this point in it's life it is almost irreplaceable to me. But I do love driving it when I can.
