1968 Pontiac Firebird VORTEC 383 STROKER


For those that want to stand out in a crowd, bright yellow is one of the top hues to spray and this first generation Firebird wears this yellow well.
The color is the same sprayed on a late model Z06 Corvette. It’s rich, making it pop out just slightly.
As far as body work goes, this one shows as a very professional job.
Everything thing is flat, lines up straight, and even gaps show off tight panel fitment.
Up front is a fiberglass 5” cowl hood that really makes a broad statement of what this car has to offer. Chrome work and trim on the body is what you’d expect on ’60s muscle, and it shows well, with some added accents on the rear quarter fenders. The real show comes from the bright, chrome Foose wheels that measure 18” up front and 20” in the rear.

Lift open the fiberglass hood and reveal a Vortec 383 stroker crate engine that is simply an intimidating sight, and you’ll love showing this one off. Power is suspected to be in the 400-600 horsepower range, but it’s hard to confirm without some dyno time. You shouldn’t be disappointed!
The mods and enhancements are obviously a long list, but some of the features are a 750 Holley carburetor, MSD ignition, an MSD two-step module for consistent launches off the line, a 250 wet shot of nitrous, Hedman headers, a March serpentine system, and you can’t ignore the sweet looking air cleaner.

Power travels to a solid 4L80E automatic transmission that turns 3.73 gears with a Detroit locker. An electric fan and aluminum radiator keeps the 383 running cool, while spent gasses are sent through a large dual exhaust system for an aggressive sound that is undeniably muscle car. You’ll even notice the gas tank has been fabricated to have the fuel pick-up at the rear, ensuring consistent power with hard launches. Power steering helps the driver keep his mind on other things, while power four-wheel disc brakes come from a large Willwood set-up that was originally intended to be applied to a Z06.
