1968 Pontiac Firebird Pro Clear Body- The Machine, Fits DR10, 22S - 11.25" Width & 13" Wheelbase
The 1968 styled body, dubbed "The Machine", has been an immediate hit on and off the race track, and prototyped and driven by JConcepts drivers across the United States. The body shell exudes confidence with its low-profile stature, super low Firebird V-nose, built-in front splitter, and crowned hood line.
The Firebird has a long silhouette, allowing an even displacement of downforce over the front and rear end, helping the body gain grip where needed. The over-hang in the rear, and built-in rear side-dams help the vehicle gain forward traction and launch stability. Stability at speed with "The Machine" is improved by the low-slung roof-line. The lay-down front windshield cuts through the wind like a fighter jet, while the recessed side-windows provide just enough visibility for a Pro Mod.
The front-end of the body is important to maximize the MPH and elapsed time during any pass. The heavy front-end rake allows the vehicle to hold tight on the "big end" of the race track. With just enough clearance to fit over most front suspension components, "The Machine" hangs low and looks tough. A slight hood-scoop runs the center-line of the body, over the crowned hood, which makes perfect space for painting decoration or sponsor decals.
The front-end looks are completed by adding included headlight, grille and duct decals. The built-in splitter can be trimmed to the lowest cutline to slice through the air with efficiency. Small wheel wells close up large gaps around the tires, and an ultra-low cutline on the rocker panel area allows the body to hang low to the ground. The final feature, the long roof-line, extended to the trunk section, blends into a built-in gurney type wing for downforce, even without adding additional wings or aerodynamics.
The JConcepts body includes overspray film on top of the body, window mask for quick paint and prep and detailed Pontiac Firebird / JConcepts decal sheet.
