Neat car.

How old is the house pictured behind the car? 1700 - 1800s.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Very nice! What engine and trans does it have?
I had a 68 back in high school (late 70's) that had a Tri-Power and Powerglide trans. Never knew what the engine was from or how the car was originally equipped.

A small correction, Indy, if your car had a Pontiac engine, your 2 speed automatic trans. was actually a Turbo 250 rather than the Chevy only Powerglide. It was an entirely different unit, with more in common with the Turbo 350 than with the Powerglide. With that trans. the car was probably originally a 326 eng. car.

I think the 326 was only available in 67 for the Firebird. In 68 the smallest v8 was the Pontiac 350.
The Super Turbine 300 was the 2 speed automatic trans used in Buick, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac at the time.
