In 1967, Pontiac unleashed their pony car. Named at first Banshee, it was soon changed to Firebird (since Banshee, the mystical Irish creature, symbolized death). As a last-minute offering, Pontiac teamed up with Chevrolet and the first Firebird was based on the Camaro, which explains why you will find many of the parts used on the 1967 Camaro on the Firebird. Call it a Camaro with a Pontiac heart. And it was the heart of this model that pulled it ahead of other pony cars, for beating under the hood was the same powerplant that powered the legendary GTO. The Firebird 400 H.O. was later offered with a Ram Air package and the race was set. If the Firebird H.O. was too hot to handle, Pontiac dished up the Firebird in a variety of models including a pair of six cylinders. But in 1969, when Pontiac unveiled the Trans Am, the world was never the same again. The Pontiac Trans Am would set the stage for the next round in the pony car wars, where in the next decade, the Firebird would lead the pack. Pontiac Firebird Restoration Guide 1967-1969 is sure to become the must-have book for all first-generation Firebird owners. Every model from the base six to the rare and desirable Trans Am is covered. Loaded with part numbers and photos it will be just the tool you need to restore your classic Firebird.
