History:


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.

Additional Facts:

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 Firebird’s 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.

Present Or Future Plans:

It is an ongoing project… Just throwing more money in it when possible.

My Ride’s Pictures:

Nice picture of the 67 Pontiac Firebird 400. Also nice wheels on this icon of a muscle car. The car is in excellent shape even though restoration has just began. The owner is 16 years old now (in 2011) but he bought the car when he was 15 with plans to restore it as he has the time and I suppose the money. I am sure that he will send new pictures as he continue the restoration, so make sure that you visit often. Click on the Picture to open a new page with a larger picture.

This is the “voyage home” of the 67 Pontiac Firebird 400. This beauty was bought it on eBay and because it was not running, had to be transported home on a trailer. However, I doubt very much that even after it is all restored it will become a “trailer queen”. I am sure that the owner will enjoy driving it everywhere any chance he gets. I would do exactly the same… In fact I do exactly the same with my own cars. Click on the Picture to see a larger picture.

Another great picture of the 67 Pontiac Firebird 400. The car seems to be ready to be driven away on this picture. It has the Cragar wheels on and it has the license plate already in place, so it seems to be in drivable conditions. This is without a doubt a nice car anyway you look at it. And apart from a few blemishes on the paint, the body seems to be in excellent condition. Make sure to click on the picture to enlarge.

This picture shows the owner working on some component of the 67 Pontiac Firebird 400. I am sure that whatever he works on, as long it is on something to improve the looks or performance of this beauty he enjoys it and does not consider it work. Telling by this and other pictures, it seems that he has a long ways to go. Usually with a project like this, you go forever because regardless of how much work is done, there is always something else that can be replaced or improved, so it is a non ending project.

This picture of the 67 Pontiac Firebird show how large a project it is. However, the owner seems to be enjoying working on this beauty. I am sure that he has a picture in his mind of this beauty completely restored and that will keep him going until he sees that picture materialized. I will be waiting for updated pictures with anticipation to see how this early American muscle car will look when he finally finishes restoring it.
