Designed as a pony car to compete with the Ford Mustang, it was introduced on February 23, 1967, five months after GMs Chevrolet divisions platform-sharing Camaro. This also coincided with the release of the 1967 Mercury Cougar, Fords upscale, platform-sharing version of the Mustang. The name Firebird was also previously used by GM for the General Motors Firebird in the 1950s and early 1960s concept cars. The first generation Firebird had characteristic Coke bottle styling shared with its cousin, the Chevrolet Camaro. Announcing a Pontiac styling trend, the Firebirds bumpers were integrated into the design of the front end, giving it a more streamlined look than the Camaro. The Firebirds rear slit taillights were inspired by the 1966 1967 Pontiac GTO. Both a two-door hardtop and a convertible were offered through the 1969 model year. The 1967 base model Firebird came equipped with the Pontiac 230ci SOHC inline-six, it was fitted with a one-barrel carburetor and rated at 165HP. The Sprint model six came with a four-barrel carburetor, developing 215HP. Most buyers opted for one of three V8s: the 326ci with a two-barrel carburetor producing 250HP, the four-barrel HO 326, producing 285HP or the 325HP 400ci from the GTO. All 1967 1968 400 CI engines had throttle restrictors that blocked the carburetors secondaries from fully opening. A Ram Air option was also available, providing functional hood scoops, higher flow heads with stronger valve springs, and a hotter camshaft. Power for the Ram Air package was the same as the conventional 400 HO, but peaked at 5,200 rpm. The 230ci engines were subsequently enlarged for 1968 to 250ci, the base version developing an increased 175HP using a one-barrel carburetor, and the high-output Sprint version the same 215HP with a four-barrel carburetor. Also for the 1968 model, the 326ci engine was replaced by the Pontiac 350ci V8, which actually displaced 354ci and produced 265HP with a two-barrel carburetor. An HO version of the 350ci with a revised cam was also offered starting in that year, which developed 320HP. Power output of the other engines was increased marginally. The styling difference from the 1967 to the 1968 model was the addition of federally-mandated side marker lights: for the front of the car, the turn signals were made larger and extended to wrap around the front edges of the car, and on the rear, the Pontiac (V-shaped) Arrowhead logo was added to each side. The front door vent-windows were replaced with a single pane of glass and Astro Ventilation, a fresh-air-inlet system. The 1969 model received a major facelift with a new front-end design but unlike the GTO, it did not have the Endura bumper. The instrument panel and steering wheel were revised. The ignition switch was moved from the dashboard to the steering column with the introduction of GMs new locking ignition switch/steering wheel. In March 1969, a US$1,083 optional handling package called the Trans Am performance and appearance package, UPC WS4, named after the Trans Am Series, was introduced. A total of 689 hardtops and eight convertibles were made.
