Q: 400 Exterior Badging
Did all 1st generation Firebirds that came with 400 engines have all the exterior “400” badging and 400 scoop hoods (except 1967 hoods)?
A: The “400” option on the 1967-1969 Firebirds included exterior badging (Decklid, Hood “400” emblems), Scooped (closed) Hood and of course, the 400 engine. This option also included chrome moldings in the middle of the Grills for the 1967-1968 and a Pontiac Crest emblem on the Front Bumper for all 3 years.
A: You forgot the 1969’s also had chrome molding in the grilles. It rimmed the “grille” (the actual opening). This did not include the 1969 Trans Ams with the blacked out grilles. Also, the 400’s for all 3 years had chrome air cleaner lids and valve covers, and dual exhausts. Floor shift was part of the standard 3 speed trans deal, unless automatic was specified but not the console.
