My friends at H.A.L.F gave me allot of help in finding this car. Not only that but a local car here in Houston. I had David (previous owner) and Bjorn send me some pics. got in contact with David and found out a little more about the history of the car. He had originally picked up the car from Manchester, NH back in 2003. David was lucky enough to get allot of info on the original sale. He gave me the original Body Broadcast Sheet, Owner Protection Plan & new Vehicle warranty, and the original Protect-O-Plate. The plate shows that the original owner was J. Ruch in Madison NJ.
I ran the VIN at First Gen Firebird Website.
Here were the results
1968 Pontiac Firebird V8 Sport Coupe
This car was the 42,651 made at the Lordstown, Ohio plant.
1968 Pontiac Firebird Coupe with Custon Trim Option.
The paint was Solar Red with Solar Red upper body color.
The trim color and material are Black Custom Option Vinyl
This car has the Fisher Body Unit Number 16,118 built in the 3rd week of February at the Lordstown, Ohio plant.
