1967 PONTIAC FIREBIRD -- CLOSE COUSIN TO THE CAMARO
The Pontiac Firebird hit showrooms a few months after Camaro and had a platform of 108
inch wheelbase and other major body panels. Pontiac Div. Gen Mgr.,
DeLorean wanted the Firebird distinctive and own identity by adopting the
trademark split grille and GTO type taillamps. Coupes and convertibles
were offered, starting at $2,666 and $2,903 respectively. In the sixties,
Pontiac was in it's heyday with all of these models offered besides the
Firebird: Tempest, LeMans, Tempest Safari, Tempest GTO, Catalina,
Executive, Bonneville and Grand Prix. Engines for the Firebird are L-head
sixes, 230 cid., with 165 - 215 bhp., V8's, 326 cid., 250 - 285 bhp., abd
400 cid., with 325 bhp. However, this example here has a V8, 455 cid turbo with 350 bhp., a powerplant that the
owner of this installed. Now the Firebird was $200 more than a Camaro with 82,560 units built
compared to the Camaro
that had 220,900 units built. The Firebird 400 had, of course the 400
cubic engine and listed for more than $3,800 and could breath through the
hood scoops. The 400 also could do 0 - 60 mph in 6.2 seconds and the 1/4
mile at 98 mph. If you think this Firebird kind of resembles the Camaro, you're right for these
cars shared body shells. Thanks so much for viewing this 1967 Pontiac
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with an 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

1973 Super Duty Trans Am
Some info on this car , I purchased it in Feb 1987 for $7,000. When I
purchaed this car the SD455 motor was rarely spoke of even in Pontiac
crowds. The car is originaly Brewster Green but was painted white back in
the mid to late 70's thats when the large and small birds were added and
yes that would be wrong but that is the way the person who painted it
wanted it. The condition of the paint today is not great but this car is
not a restored trailer queen, nothing wrong with trailered cars, I am not
afraid to drive it, I take it to cruise in's, I have done 200mile day
trips, I have taken it to the track and it runs consistant 13.10 (best time
12.96 @ 107) enjoy it with the family, not afraid if someone leans on it or
touches it, although I try to keep it out of the rain if possible. About
the paint, what would be correct for this car would be Brewster Green paint
and the small bird on the nose (one option that was not ordered for this
car was the large hood bird which was an option in 73). So although not
original this is the way this car appeared back in the day. The rest of
the body and interior is original, the car is loaded with options that
include , CUSTOM CLOTH, PW, PL, A/C, REAR WINDOW DEFROST, LIGHT GROUP,
TINTED WINDOWS, REAR CONSOLE, FM STEREO, EXTERIOR MOLDING TRIM PACKAGE,
sealed maintenance free battery (it had no fill plugs). RTS (radial tuned
suspension) which was an option for the first time in 1973 trans am and
formula, this included radial ttires with about a 1/2 white wall stripe and
the suspension change which I think was about 1/2 degree negative camber.
As for the motor it was rebuilt back in 1991, .030 overbore, heads milled
about .080, 030 SD pistons, match port heads, RA IV hyd cam, roller
rockers, 2 1/2 flowmaster with stock style cross over muffler and Griffin
radiator for 95 degree florida days, all else stock.
I have considered painting it to get the original color back but I think I
would start to baby the car. It's so much fun the way is it now.
1968 Pontiac Firebird vs 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am - Generation Gap: Firebirds
Cast your vote here:
In this episode of Generation Gap the guys compare Firebirds: old vs. new.
Davin brought a classic 1968 Pontiac Firebird equipped with a 350-CID V-8
boasting 320 hp. Matt, on the other hand, had a bit of a trick up his
sleeve bringing a 2010 Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Trans Am
modified to the nines to look and perform like a modern Firebird. Its 455
CID and 655 hp are some impressive numbers, but how will it be on the road?
Generation Gap appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend youtube
