1971 Pontiac Firebird
The 1971 Pontiac Firebird saw few changes. High-back seats, new wheel covers and all models except the Trans Am, had simulated louvers behind the front wheels. As GM had to meet the standards for the new emissions engine options were significantly altered with much less performance being offered. Performance was now on the decline!
Standard on the 1971 Pontiac Firebird. Bigger doors making entrances and exits far easier to negotiate, 250 cubic inch engine, front disc brakes, bucket seats, carpeting, hidden radio antenna, wood grain vinyl dash.
