1967 Pontiac Firebird Magnificent Five Advertisement
Pontiac announces not one, two, three or four, but five magnificent new Firebirds for every kind of driving.
Now you can choose from five new Firebirds with the same advanced Pontiac styling, but with five entirely different driving personalities. And they all come with supple expanded vinyl interiors, road-gripping wide-oval tires, wood grain styled dash, exclusive space-saver collapsible spare, bucket seats (or you can order bench in coupes) and GM’s standard safety package. Which Firebird is for you? Read on.
This is our economy Firebird – with the same exciting options and interiors as the more exotic ones. What gives it its unique personality is that it was designed for inexpensive fun driving. Its Overhead Cam Six squeezes 165 hp from regular. Order it with a column-mounted 3-speed or automatic. Like all Firebirds, it comes with seat belts with pushbutton buckles, front and rear.
Now you don’t have to go to Europe for a sophisticated road machine. Firebird Sprint’s standard motivation is a 215-hp version of our eager Overhead Cam Six. It’s mounted on special suspension that practically welds it to the road. (Any Road) It comes with a floor-mounted all-synchro 3-speed and special emblems. And you can order front wheel disc brakes and a hood-mounted tach.
Is there room for a family in a sports car? There is now. The Firebird 326 combines the excitement of a sports car with the practicality of a 326 cubic inch V-8 that delivers 250 hp on regular gas. (Yes, we said 250!) Standard transmission is an all-synchro three-speed, but you can order an automatic that does all the work for you, and options that include everything from air conditioning to stereo.
HO stands for High Output. As a split second behind the wheel will attest to. The Firebird HO boasts a 285-hp V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor, dual exhausts and sport striping. Standard stick is a column-mounted three-speed. Or you can specify an all-synchro floor-mounted four-speed or automatic. Naturally, all Firebird options such as Rally wheels and gauge cluster are available.
After this, there isn’t any more. Coiled under those dual scoops is a 400 cubic inch V-8 that shrugs off 325 hp. It’s connected to a floor-mounted heavy-duty three-speed. On special suspension with redline wide-oval tires. You can order it with a close- or wide-ratio four-speed. Or with our stupendous three-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic. This could be called the ultimate in grand touring machines. (It will be).
The Magnificent Five are here! Leave it to Pontiac to do it right.
