Despite having similar displacement, Pontiac’s late sixties 350 cubic inch V8 was not a rebadged Chevrolet small block. In 1968 Pontiac replaced its 326 cubic inch entry-level V8 with a larger variant created by using Pontiac’s 389 3 7⁄8 inch bores combined with a 3 3⁄4 inch stroke for a total displacement of 353.8 cubic inches. For reasons not clear to us, Pontiac chose to label the engine a “350” as this Red-over-red Morrowkide 1968 Pontiac Firebird convertible originally listed in December 2020 on Craigslist in Lawrence, New York (Long Island) with an asking price of $25,500. The Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms this ask falls between this guide’s current #2 “Very Good” estimate of $25,000 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $37,800.
