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 wheel.
