In the late 1960s, there were few high-performance Pontiacs that John Z. DeLorean wasn’t somehow involved in. Riding high on the success of the GTO, DeLorean pushed hard for Pontiac to get a bespoke sportscar called the Banshee, to be powered by the advanced overhead cam inline six DeLorean favored. Corporate beancounters pointed at the fully developed Chevrolet Camaro and insisted that Pontiac drop the Banshee and focus on revamping the Camaro for their needs. From this, the Firebird was born. While the structure and body was largely identical to the Camaro, the front and rear fascias were Pontiac-specific, but the most important difference was under the hood. At this point, each division had their own engines, and Pontiac had several unique V8s to choose from. At the top of the pile is this Firebird’s “400 Ram Air II” engine, making 335 horsepower by breathing cool air from the functional hood scoops and set further back in the engine bay than the Camaro’s V8 offerings for better weight distribution. The clean, coke-bottle lines of the Firebird are uncluttered and classy, and other than the hoodscoops the only indication that this ‘Bird will fly down the strip are the relatively restrained “400” badges on the hood and trunklid.
