Roll back the clock: ’73 Pontiac Firebird
Our title should not be confused with the age old tradition of kicking the odometer back a few thousand miles. Sadly a common practice back in the day. We apply that phrase to what you experience when you open up the door and get in this pristine, time capsule Firebird with a scant 2,600 original miles. We sometimes call cars like this “reference cars’. We do that because restorers, concours judges can use a fine specimen like this to know what is correct on a particular model. Frankly, a ’73 Pontiac Firebird isn’t going to be on the lawn at Pebble anytime soon but at Pontiac events, this could be quite the attention getter. Surely, if they have a survivor class you would win no questions ask. Unless that guy with the 2,400 mile Tempest shows up at the same meet. Darn! The quandary the seller and prospective buyer has with cars like this, however rare, is what exactly do you do with it? If you decide you want to roll back the clock and make this your daily driver, I guess you could. As soon as the miles start ticking up, it becomes just another ’73 Firebird. Th other consideration would be if you, the prospective buyer, had intentions of finding a similar car with needs. More than likely, that car will cost you more than shelling out $29,000 large for this one. What would you do? When you decide, contact the seller by clicking here.
