All Speed Customs Builds Mind-Boggling Pontiac Firebird

Fearing that Pontiac might build a sportscar that would compete with the Chevrolet Corvette, General Motors decided to give the brand a piece of the pony car market by sharing the Camaro’s F-body platform. The results was dubbed Firebird and remained in production until 2002.

As with most pony cars, the most successful vehicles were built during the late 1960s and the early 1970s. Introduced in 1970, the second-generation Firebird was the most brutal of them all, being offered with GM’s largest engine at the time - the 455 cubic inch (7.5-liter) V8.

With Pontiac out of the automotive scene for more than three years now, these classic Firebirds have become highly collectible. However, some of them have been reworked to house modern powerplants and electronics, while receiving new styling features. The latest restomod Firebird we came across was built by All Speed Customs for Tom Conkright and it’s a stunner.

Fitted with a twin-turbo 475 cubic inch (7.8-liter) V8 and many other updates under the hood, this 1970 model is dressed in a triple black paint job that makes it boht menacing and tasteful. The interior has been reworked as well, and it now includes full leather with dual stitching, a custom center console, aluminum dash plate, custom billet door handles and many more.
