1968.5 Ace Wilson’s Pontiac Firebird Royal Drag Car Limited Edition Diecast by Acme

This spectacular replica is based on the original Ram Air Firebird that first featured Pontiac’s round port head package, a rare vehicle as only 110 are said to have been produced. Brand new box. Rubber tires. Opening hood, trunk and doors. Has steerable wheels. Made of diecast metal. Detailed interior, exterior. Detailed 400 engine . Serialized plate. Polished drag wheels. Acme is thrilled to present a replica of the Royal built and tuned 1968 ½ Ram Air Firebird! Pontiac had Royal build this car to feature Pontiac’s new “round” port head package. This 1:18 scale replica features opening hood, trunk and doors; poseable steering; a highly detailed 400 engine, detailed undercarriage and interior, and a serialized plate. This new “round” port head would arrive until late in 1968, and thus the car and head package was referred to as the 1968 ½ engine package. This late arrival also meant that there were very few 1968 Ram Air Firebird 400’s built. Only 110 are known to have been produced, 98 manual shifts and 12 automatics. It rides on polished drag wheels with rubber tires and has the standard Royal license plate frame with an embossed thin stock aluminum Royal Bobcat emblem. Limited edition of 996 pieces worldwide. One thing common on all Pontiacs prepped by Royal was the license plate frame and the embossed thin stock aluminum emblem calling out “Royal Bobcat”!
