1967 Pontiac Firebird

Ready to compete in the new and competitive Pony car market, Pontiac joined the action with a new Firebird in 1967. First released about 5 months after the Camaro the Firebird shared the same chassis and several body parts with the Camaro. The difference came with the distinct styling and engine options.

Actually there where 5 engines to choose from!
