Whether you use it for car shows, merely collectible purposes, or as a daily driver, this Firebird is sure to please with plenty of smiles per gallon.
The Pontiac Firebird was brought to market under John Z. DeLorean’s supervision at Pontiac. From 1967 through 1969, the Firebird offered an unusual single-overhead camshaft inline-six engine that was available with a four-barrel carburetor in Spring models. The brand’s 326- and 400 cubic-inch motors were offered in V8 variants.
The 1967 Pontiac Firebird you see here has just 38,531 miles clocked on the odometer. It’s dressed in the beautiful Mayfair Maize (pale yellow hue) color that hugs every curve of this muscle car ever so elegantly. The contrasting black interior is in immaculate condition and was very well taken care of. It features vinyl bucket seating for added comfort so you can slip into the car with ease and remain snug no matter the drive.
This example features the standard convertible package with a manual top, manual steering and brakes, and Pontiac rally wheels. It's powered by a 3.8-liter overhead cam six-cylinder engine mated to a three-speed manual transmission. Other options on this rare 557 built Firebird include dual exhaust, factory traction bars, and an Edelbrock carburetor. Interior features include a factory AM radio and center console. This model was built in the second week of May in 1967 and rolled off the assembly floor of the Lordstown plant in Ohio.
The first-generation Firebird shared the Coke bottle styling characteristics with its cousin, the Chevy Camaro. The Firebird’s bumpers, however, were integrated into the design of the front end to give it a more streamlined appearance than the Camaro. Pontiac also drew inspiration for the Firebird’s rear “slit” taillights from the 1966-1967 GTO. Through the 1969 model year, both a two-door hardtop and a convertible variant was offered.
A fun fact is that the Firebird was actually a “consolation prize” for the Pontiac brand, which was looking to produce a two-seater sports car based on its original Banshee concept. General Motors feared that this would cut into the Corvette’s sales figures and decided to give Pontiac a slice of the pony car market by sharing the F-body platform with Chevrolet.
