1967 Firebird

This particular 1967 Firebird was built the 3rd week of June 1967 and delivered to Columbia Pontiac (now Columbia Toyota) in Dorchester Mass.

My wife and I are the 5th owners, purchasing it on December 5th, 1987. When it was purchased it was equipped with a '67 XH 400 (350hp Grand Prix) with '68 #16 heads and a '66 tripower. The car was a former drag car with the lettering "Six Pack to Go" painted on the sides, aftermarket traction bars and a roll bar.

Having spent the entire time in New England the car was in serious need of a full restoration. My intent was to make it into a driver but I ended up taking the entire car apart and detailing everything. The floors, quarters, outerwheelhouse openings and trunk extensions were replaced. The engine, tripower and transmission were rebuilt. All the exterior trim and and interior parts were replaced with NOS or aftermarket parts. Both bumpers were rechromed.

The car was finally completed on July 5th 1995.

  It was delivered as follows:
