The Firebird was introduced the same year as the automaker's platform-sharing model, the Chevrolet Camaro. The first generation Firebirds had a characteristic Coke bottle styling. Unlike its cousin, the Chevrolet Camaro, its bumpers were integrated into the design of the front end and its rear "slit" taillights were inspired by the Pontiac GTO. Both a two-door hardtop and a convertible were offered through the 1969 model year. The 1969 model received a major facelift with a new front end design made of an Endura bumper housing the headlights and grilles. 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. VIN 223379U100518 This beautiful Firebird runs nice and strong. It came out of Michigan and has had a body off rebuild. The car has never been races, but is a very fun driver that gets the looks!
