Both Cars are numbers matching. They both have their original numbers matching engines, transmissions and rear ends still with them.
The body tags on each are labeled Show Body 1 on this convertible and Show Body 4 on the coupe. Both cars were used for auto show and advertising purposes, before being eventually released and sold.

By 1966, the race was really heating up between the big three manufacturers to dominate the pony-car muscle movement that had become so hot. The release of Firebird in 1967 came about under the direction of John DeLorean, as a Vice President of General Motors and Pontiac Division General Manager. Pontiac's Chief Design Engineer, Jack Humbert, was assigned the task of developing the car. He commissioned his very best Pontiac designers for the job. The Firebird was born with a uniquely different appearance and engineering features than its sister car, the Camaro, although they shared a common body structure. Visually the Pontiac F-body, as it was called, came with a split-nose grille and chrome bumper, a lowered stance, wide oval tires, horizontal headlights and taillights, along with Rally-style side vents.
The new Firebird certainly stood out from the crowd. Although the Pontiac Firebird was a late entry to the race, in January 1967, the car dominated not only in popularity and performance, it dominated the Pontiac showrooms as well. Sales went through the roof, selling in excess of 82,000 units that first year, even with a late release.
Both this VIN #001 convertible and the VIN #002 coupe are very significant Firebird's that were found together. They have been together all these years and never separated. They were discovered in very tired and sad condition. They were rescued and painstakingly restored by Gas Monkey Garage led by Jason Aker, a concours restoration expert brought on board to oversee the project.
During the restorations, both of these cars required extensive metal work. But every effort was made to retain as much original metal as possible. They are both the original shells, but new floors were installed and replacement quarters and rockers were required. But no re-bodying was done. They are beautiful works of Art that would be an amazing addition to any collection or a museum.
**SELLING AS A PAIR - This is a unique opportunity to own two of the most significant Pontiac's built.
