Dream Car Giveaway



  • The first Firebird was made at Lordstown, Ohio, in early January 1967.
  • Pontiac offered both a coupe and a convertible on February 23, 1967.
  • The basic structure of the 1967 Firebird was based on the Camaro.
  • The sheet metal of the front fenders, door skins, and rear quarters were borrowed from the Camaro.
  • Pontiac added the split front grille, a beaked hood, and taillights patterned after the GTO.
  • External features included:
    • sculptured body styling
    • twin grilles of a bumper-integral design
    • front vent windows
    • three vertical air slots on the leading edge of the rear body panels
  • Although the frame and shell was borrowed from the Camaro, the engines were built by Pontiac.
  • Some think that the overhead cam engine was the exclusive choice of European and Japanese cars while American cars favored only the pushrod overhead valve engines.
  • However, Pontiac fielded an overhead cam (OHC) inline six cylinder engine with 230 cid (3.8-liter) producing 165 horsepower (gross rating) fueled through a one-barrel carburetor.
  • The OHC engine could be beefed up with a four-barrel carburetor and an increased compression ratio (from 9:1 to 10.5:1) and thus produce 215 hp.
  • The six cylinder engine could be mated to one of three transmission options:
    • Three-speed manual
    • Four-speed manual
    • Two-speed Powerglide automatic
  • Because the horsepower pony race was on, many buyers chose the V8 engine to compete with Mustang and Camaro.
  • Again there were four V8 engine options:
    • 250-hp two-barrel 326 cid
    • 285-hp four-barrel 326 cid
    • 325-hp four-barrel 400 cid
    • 335-hp ram air four-barrel 400 cid
  • Four transmission options were available:
    • Three-speed manual
    • Four-speed manual
    • Two-speed Powerglide automatic
    • Three-speed Turbo-hydramatic automatic
  • Bucket seats were standard.
  • Two body styles (coupe and convertible) were offered and came with any of the Tempest or GTO power trains.
  • However, the two body styles were marketed in five "model-options" created by adding RPOs in specific combinations.
  • Production records were not kept according to the RPO packages, but by the number of sixes and V-8s built with standard or deluxe appointments.
  • The model-option such as Sprint, H.O., and 400 are described in the optional equipment section below.
