THE FIRST RAM AIR II PONTIAC FIREBIRD EVER PRODUCED LED A DOUBLE LIFE! 

The 1968 1/2 Ram Air II is a late production high performance option that was offered by Pontiac in mid-year of 1968 replacing the original L67 Ram Air option. It was developed to meet the demand for maximum performance and to give Pontiac a competitive entry in drag racing competition. It was the first to use re-designed cylinder heads with large round exhaust ports and many other performance enhancements. The Ram Air II Firebird is one of the rarest Pontiac muscle cars. In total there were 110 Ram Air II Firebirds built in 1968, of which 98 were equipped with a 4-speed manual and 12 with automatic transmission.
This 1968 Ram Air II Firebird is exceptionally rare, it is one of only 12 with the TH400 automatic transmission and according to Pontiac Historic Service, it is the first Ram Air II Firebird produced.

Pete Weidner competed in the Ram Air II Firebird in NHRA drag racing in 1968. For 1969, it was replaced with a Ram Air IV GTO and the Ram Air II was sold.
