1970 marked the second-generation of the Firebird.
It got off to a late start because of engineering problems, and production didn’t begin until early 1970 leading to a commonly used term of 1970 ½.
The drastic styling made up for the late entry. Edmunds.com said the new striking car was “a muscle car with styling that looked as if it had been designed in Italy.” It now sported the Endura bumper and was the same color as the car giving it a unique, bumper less looking front.
