About the Firebird:
The Pontiac Firebird was built and produced by Pontiac from the
1967 to 2002 model years. Designed as a pony car to compete with
the Ford Mustang, it was introduced on February 23, 1967, five
months after GM's Chevrolet division's platform-sharing Camaro.
This also coincided with the release of the 1967 Mercury Cougar,
Ford's upscale, platform-sharing version of the Mustang.
The name "Firebird" was also previously used by GM for the General
Motors Firebird in the 1950s and early 1960s concept cars.
The first generation Firebird had characteristic Coke bottle
styling shared with its cousin, the Chevrolet Camaro. Announcing a
Pontiac styling trend, the Firebird's bumpers were integrated into
the design of the front end, giving it a more streamlined look than
the Camaro. The Firebird's rear "slit" taillights were inspired by
the 1966-1967 Pontiac GTO. Both a two-door hardtop and a
convertible were offered through the 1969 model year. Originally,
the car was a "consolation prize" for Pontiac, which had desired to
produce a two-seat sports car based on its original Banshee concept
car. However, GM feared this would cut into Chevrolet Corvette
sales, and gave Pontiac a piece of the "pony car" market through
sharing the F-body platform with Chevrolet.
The 1967 base model Firebird came equipped with the Pontiac 230 cu
in SOHC inline-six. Based on the architecture of the standard
Chevrolet 230 cu in inline-six, it was fitted with a one-barrel
carburetor and rated at 165 HP. The "Sprint" model six came with a
four-barrel carburetor, developing 215 HP. Most buyers opted for
one of three V8s: the 326 cu in with a two-barrel carburetor
producing 250 HP; the four-barrel "HO" (high output) 326, producing
285 HP; or the 325 HP 400 cu in from the GTO.
All 1967-1968 400 CI engines had throttle restrictors that blocked
the carburetors' secondaries from fully opening. A "Ram Air" option
was also available, providing functional hood scoops, higher flow
heads with stronger valve springs, and a hotter camshaft. Power for
the Ram Air package was the same as the conventional 400 HO, but
peaked at 5,200 rpm.
There was an additional Ram Air IV option for the 400 cu in V8
engines during 1969, complementing the Ram Air 400 now often
colloquially but incorrectly called the "Ram Air III," a name never
used by Pontiac. The Ram Air IV was rated at 345 HP at 5000 rpm and
430 lb�ft of torque at 3400 rpm; and 335 HP respectively. The 350
cu in HO engine was revised again with a different cam and cylinder
heads resulting in 325 HP. During 1969 a special 303 cu in engine
was designed for SCCA road racing applications that was not
available in production cars.
The 1969 model received a major facelift with a new front-end
design but unlike the GTO, it did not have the Endura bumper. The
instrument panel and steering wheel were revised. The ignition
switch was moved from the dashboard to the steering column with the
introduction of GM's new locking ignition switch/steering
