Bought it about a year ago (I was 15 yrs old then, I am 16 now) with big plans to restore it in the next few years.
Bought it off E-bay and trailored it home about 700 miles. First thing that went on it were the wheels… Even before we had it running.
The 1967, 1968 and 1969 Pontiac Firebirds were the first generation of these American muscle cars and were characterized by a Coke bottle style. Different from its cousin, the Chevy Camaro, the Firebirds bumpers were incorporated into the front end. The slit rear end taillights were designed similar to those of the Pontiac GTO. A two-door convertible as well as a hardtop were available through the 1969 model year.
Base model Pontiac Firebirds were available with the OHC inline 6 and with a single barrel carburetor. A 5.3L V8 putting out 250 Horse Power was also available together with a two barrel carburetor. This combination became a very popular option among most buyers. A four barrel carburetor was also available which combined with this engine produced 285 Horse Power. Another option more suitable to those who wanted better performance there was a 400 CID V8 which combined with a four barrel carburetor produced 325 Horse Power.
In 1968 another available option was Ram Air. This option included functional air intake scoops built into the hood, high performance flow heads, heavy duty valve springs and a special camshaft.
Styling wise, the 1967 and the 1968 apart from the side markers, blinkers and vent windows, were identical. In comparison, the 1969 Pontiac Firebird received a major face lift. The second generation was delayed due to engineering problems, so production of the 1969 Firebird continued during the early months of 1970.
It is an ongoing project… Just throwing more money in it when possible.
