$10,000 Reward For Return Of Stolen 1968 Pontiac Firebird
November 20th, 2018Last year in 2017, motor vehicles were stolen at a rate of 237.4 per 100,000 people. Every 40.9 seconds a stolen motor vehicle was reported in the United States according to www.iii.org.
Unfortunately, Fiehrer Motors, a dealership in Hamilton, Ohio was hit hard with a particular vehicle theft. The classic 1968 Pontiac Firebird taken belonged to the vice president, Daniel Fiehrer. This wasn't just any car, though. He has owned the car since 1991, and it is a prize possession in the family. Before his wife and kids, the car was there and holds significant sentimental value. Now the dealership is offering $10,000 for the return of the beloved Firebird.
According to Hagerty, the 1968 Firebird is worth an average value of $14,500. This particular Firebird might be worth a bit more. Under the hood is a 1972 Pontiac 455 V8 with 6X head castings, a March stainless pulley system and serpentine belt, and a Holley 850 double pump carburetor. A Tremec five-speed manual transmission shifts the power, and to keep things cool he installed a red anodized aluminum radiator with dual electric fans.
The red slathered on the car is from a 1992 Dodge Viper, and it features a black vinyl top. Stock Pontiac Ralley rims grace the exterior along with a working hood tachometer. The interior is black and equipped with AM/FM radio and an amp.
The VIN number is 223378U167146 with "ELVIS P1" vanity plates (likely off the car). This classic Pontiac is loud with the unmistakable cam lope while sitting at idle.
We sure hope that Daniel is reconnected with his 1968 Pontiac Firebird soon, and that it is returned or found unscathed.
