1977 Pontiac Firebird proposal med3

Though the date of this photograph is not clear, the model is marked as a proposal for a 1976 update; the update didn’t actually happen until 1977. As is commonly done, two themes appear to have been explored on either side of this model.

(A) Both sides are characterized with broad side marker lamps. The pattern on the left is a little difficult to discern; the markers on the right are thin slits in a lens that appears to wrap around to the inside. (B) What is probably most peculiar are the proposed dual round headlights on the right side. Looking sort of like a modern retro interpretation, they would have revived a pattern last seen on Firebird in 1969.
