Update 5/8/2019: We first wrote about these two special Pontiacs for sale in 2016, when they came up for auction at Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas. The bidding didn't reach reserve. Now 1967 Pontiac Firebirds VIN #001 and #002 have been listed together on eBay Motors in Lincoln, Nebraska, using the same pictures from the 2016 auction, and with a Buy It Now price of $285,000. If you were hoping for a second chance to own these pieces of Firebird history, this is it. Our original article regarding the cars' sale, published September 22nd, 2016, can be seen below.
You want a piece of American automotive history? You could do a lot worse than heading to Barrett-Jackson's Las Vegas auctions and bidding on this pair, the first two Pontiac Firebirds to roll off the assembly line. The red drop-top is VIN #001 and the coupe is VIN #002, and both are in beautiful shape.
Both cars were treated to full restorations after being found together in a private collection. GM initially used these cars for auto shows and advertising, but eventually made their way into the public. Apparently, they've been kept as a pair for their entire public ownership, hence why Barrett-Jackson is selling them as a pair.
The convertible and coupe are both equipped with 326 cubic inch V8s, but the convertible uses a three-speed auto, where the coupe has a four-speed manual.
Barrett-Jackson doesn't provide an estimate for how much the pair will sell for, but owing to their historical significance, we expect them to be significantly more expensive than your average 1967 Firebird.
