With the Ford Mustang, the GM competitor achieved immense market success, and with it founded the class of “pony cars”: affordable, powerful and compact sports coupés for the average American wage earner. General Motors could not stand by for long and launched the “Firebird” with its sporty Pontiac brand. None other than the then Pontiac president John DeLorean himself started this fire when he had the Firebird developed on the basis of the Chevrolet Camaro. The Firebird was definitely the more aggressive sports coupé and was named after the turbine car “Firebird XP-21” (1953). The split front grille, the neatly integrated front wings and the rear lights inspired by the Pontiac GTO made it look much better than the Camaro. Nevertheless, less than half of the first-generation Firebird (1967 to 1969) were sold compared to the Camaro, making it the rarer option today. Particularly because of its elegant lines, which the later generation Firebirds no longer have.
This Pontiac Firebird fitted with the 5.7-litre V8 was delivered to Italy in 1969 and most likely remained in the same ownership until 2012. The car was then imported into Switzerland and a little later received a new owner who had the Firebird thoroughly overhauled. During his ownership, the engine and gearbox were also rebuilt about 17’000km ago. All invoice receipts from 2014 to 2021 with a total value of CHF 35’000.- document all works.
We offer this beautiful and “unmodified” Pontiac Firebird of the first generation newly from major service. Of course with MFK veteran entry.
