Pontiac introduced it's own muscle car, the Firebird in 1967 - one of the best and certainly one of the most successful, with 46,000 sold worldwide in 1994 alone! Based on the Camaro chassis, the Firebird gave far superior performance and had unique features which appeal to drivers both then and today. This book details the Firebirds long and distinguished career, with high-quality, detailed colour photographs of both original and restored models, making it not only a restoration guide but also a unique history of this magnificent car. Advice is given for all four generations of the Firebird: tires, chassis, suspension, upholstery, mirrors, fuel lines, trim parts, finish options, and the correct parts, all with full-colour illustrations to show design and progress. The book covers the vehicle's wide variety of engine options, along with all special editions and model variations from the 1967 introduction model to the 2002 one, and is bound to appeal to anyone interested in Firebirds and Muscle cars in general.
