This Revell plastic scale model kit of the '68 Firebird 400 dates back to only 2001. It's a reissue, meaning it had been available earlier, probably when the car was new. Even though this Firebird was really a Camaro with a very slight facelift with Pontiac engines, their styling is in my opinion, one of the best offerings on any Pony car ever built. The front end is very grown up, and all of the elements are resolved nicely. The "ironing board" on the hood is perfectly proportioned and the hood scoops on this 400 model couldn't have been more perfect. The side and rear are pretty much standard Camaro with trim changes, but this first series of GM's F cars was beautifully rendered, every bit as classy as GM's larger offerings during this period. The tacky era of the late seventies Camaro was still quite a bit in the future.
