The Diecast Zone’s third Limited Edition is a beauty! A first generation Firebird coupe in a magnificent color combination of Mayfair Maize and Black. After rushing to introduce the Firebird in 1967, Pontiac made sure the ’68 established the bloodline.

Here are the specs for our model:

  • 330-Horsepower 400 c.i. 4bbl Engine
  • Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 Transmission
  • Firestone F70X14 Wide Oval Red Line Tires
  • Pontiac 14 X 7 Rally II Wheels
  • Dual Exhaust with Split Tail Pipe Extensions
  • Space-Saver Spare Tire
  • Pedal Trim Package
  • Front Manual Antenna
  • Console Electric Clock

Over 275 individually cast parts means authentic detail throughout. In the undercarriage, you’ll be able to see the staggered rear shocks and multi-leaf rear springs introduced in the ’68 model. You’ll appreciate the deftly simulated burl wood appliqué on the interior's center console and dash radio plate. Exact Detail has taken pains to recreate the flashy chrome detailing on the air cleaner, valve covers, and oil cap – unique to the 400 package!

Each model comes with a special license plate signifying its place among the Zone Limited Editions. Packaging is specially designed just for this limited edition.

Special thanks to George Bojaciuk for his inspiration and guidance in specifying this replica. We also thank Raffi Minasian and Eric Trapp for their always helpful collaboration.


All profits go to support the Diecast Car Collectors Zone. Our Limited Edition program helps underwrite new improvements on the website and our ongoing assistance to new collectors who are just joining the fun.
