'67 Firebird of Dan & Debbie Tietze "Freeda"

A National Firebird and Trans Am Club featured car is the ‘67 Firebird of Dan & Debbie Tietze from Firestone, Colorado. Here is their story:

We purchased our 1967 Firebird in 1997. It has always been a Colorado car, originally sold in Grand Junction, Colorado. Although the cosmetics were in sad shape, it was a rust free car. After having an interior kit installed and the body stripped; Freeda, as we call her, was sprayed in her original color – Cameo Ivory. She has a bright blue interior. We enjoyed the car along with our 1971 GTO convertible.

In 2008, after the GTO went by the wayside, I decided to pull Freeda’s original 326 engine, which is now stored. I replaced the engine with a nicely built 400 YT code engine with factory crank, speed pro rings and pistons, Eagle connecting rods and Crane cam. The 6X heads were treated to some port work and three angle valve job, and an Edelbrock intake with a 750 Holley dual feed. Cooling is taken care of by a Meziere water pump, 16" electric fan and a Griffin radiator. The original 350 turbo was built by Ram Transmission Gear and underneath the front drums were replaced with a Hurst roll control and Wilwood disc brake system and also rebuilding the front steering components. Quick Time performance servo controlled exhaust cut-outs and FloMaster mufflers, and Competition engineering subframe connectors. The ten bolt third member is loaded with 3.55 gears and of course body bushings will Edelbrock INS shocks for handling.

Freeda enjoys some car shows and going to Sonic Burger Friday nights, seeing other muscle cars - some oldies but goodies and even some rat rods. Freeda was built in Lordstown, Ohio, not fifty miles from where I was born. Colorado lets you run the year license plate of your car in place of your collector plates.

My wife and I will enjoy Freeda until the bitter end.

Happy cruisin’
