Description for Pontiac Firebird 1967

In 2014 work started on a 1967 Pontiac Firebird. We initially wanted to do a factory

Restoration with a little bit of an upgrade to the engine. Eugene Braswell Motorsports

Located in Todd NC was found to take on such a build. Upon speaking with

The client about the build Eugene over at EBM spoke about his passions about

pro-touring and shared some recent technology and trends with the client; he loved the idea and

agreed to move away from the factory restoration and go with a pro-touring

project. Over 200K invested and have appraisal.

Six weeks was spent looking at all the options from engine, suspension, and wheels. There are

Many different options when building a completely custom car; each with its own

Benefits and drawbacks. The final goal was to have street-able car that looked and

Performed like a brand new car. Turn the key, hot or cold, and the engine starts right up. Plenty

of power and good MPG. The suspension has to be tight and nimble allowing the car to handle like a

modern day sports car.

Ben Hermance Designs was enlisted to render the perfect styling, color, and stance. When building

Frostbite this is what was planned for the 1967 project.

After 2 years of painstaking effort "Frostbite" came to life and what we have

Today is one of the best bad ass pro-touring Firebirds in the country. Even

after "Frostbite" was finished Bubba Nicholson from Dixie Automotive in Jackson MS took

the crate engine apart and made it even better thus resulting in a pavement

pounding, blistering tire shredding, pin your body back blizzard of a car.

This car hasn't been shown that much but has already picked up 2016 Best of Show F-Body Beach Bash, 2017 Best in Class F-Body Beach Bash, 2017 Charlotte Good GuysFinalist, 2017 Everham Best of Show Modified, Smokey Mountain Fest 2017 Best of Show, Rick Hendrix 2017 Best Modified, 2018 Trans Am/Firebird Nationals 2nd Best Modified, 2019 Pontiacs in Pidgeon Forge Best Engine and Place, 2017 Annual Veterans Show Best of Show to name a few. This car has also been featured on Shutterfuel and Caffeine & Octane.
