Pontiac Firebird Factory Specs The Pontiac Firebird is an automobile which was designed by the Pontiac division of General Motors between 1967 and 2002. The Firebird was introduced the same year as the automaker's platform-sharing model. the Chevrolet Camaro. This coincided with the release of the 1967 Mercury Cougar. which shared its platform with another pony car. the Ford Mustang. The vehicles were powered by various four-cylinder. six-cylinder. and V8 engines sourced from several GM divisions. While primarily Pontiac-powered until 1977. Firebirds were built with several different engines from nearly every GM division until 1982 when GM began to discontinue engines it felt were unneeded and either spread successful designs from individual divisions among all divisions or use new engines of corporate architecture. The name "Firebird" was also previously used by General Motors for the General Motors Firebird. Second generation (1970-1981) Special versions *Trans Am 1976 not bandit *Trans Am 1977 is Bandit Black Special Edition (often incorrectly called 'Bandit' editions). 1976-1981 Gold Special Edition. 1978 only. Macho Trans-Am (Package offered only by the dealership Mecham Pontiac in Glendale. AZ). 1976 50th (Pontiac) Anniversary Edition (which was also a Black Special Edition) 1978 Firebird Formula LT Sport Edition (Pontiac) 1979 10th (Trans Am) Anniversary Limited Edition 1980 Pace Car Indy 500 Edition (Turbo Trans Am) 1981 NASCAR Edition (turbo Trans Am). Replacing the "Coke bottle" styling was a more "swoopy" body style. with the top of the rear window line going almost straight down to the lip of the trunk lid-a look that was to epitomize F-body styling for the longest period during the Firebird's lifetime. The new design was initially characterized with a large C-pillar. until 1975 when the rear window was enlarged. A distinctive. slant-nose facelift occurred in 1977. redone somewhat in 1979. From 1977 to 1981. the Firebird used four square headlamps. while the Camaro continued to retain the two round headlights that had previously been shared by both Second Generation designs. The 1977 Trans-Am Special Edition became famous after being featured in Smokey and the Bandit. Later on the 1980 Turbo model was used for Smokey and the Bandit II. Up until the 1979 models. the performance of 400-equipped Firebirds could still be brought up to near pre-1970 levels by removing the catalytic converter and opening up the block off plate to make the hood scoop functional. Static compression ratios dropped in the early 70s which crippled horsepower and torque output. In 1980. due to ever-increasing emissions restrictions. Pontiac dropped all of its large displacement engines. WE DO REQUIRE A $500 DEPOSIT VIA CREDIT CARD OR CASH IN PERSON WITHIN 24 HOURS AUCTION OR LISTING CLOSE. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYPAL.
