I found this site while looking up some info for a friend.  I noticed that Brett was asking for proof of any production numbers for the Blue, Yellow and Red birds.  I emailed him and sent all but one of the reports but don't know if he was able to open the reports I sent.  My scans were large files and he suggested PDF or Zip files.  I did the Zip and the size dropped but the last report is still over 25 meg.  I'll have to split this one since gmail does not allow attachments over 25 meg or they get uploaded first.  NBD I'm sure Brett is busy I just want to know if he can open what I sent and if he would like the last one.

Brett asked if they were the final report for the years and some say that.  Others show totals to August or September.  I know that a usual production year for GM started in Sept and ran till August.  I also know some years ran over but I'm unfamiliar with Pontiac's production runs.  If anyone talks to Brett often please let him know I posted this.  It's been a couple weeks and I don't want to leave him hanging especially if this info is something he can use.  Plus if you can fill in anything about the production time frame for these years that would help.

I enjoy the numbers deal, it is nice to see a option production number when it applies to your car or interest.  Hopefully you guys will get some new information from these reports.  I could upload them to DropBox.com if there is enough interest.  Here is one page of 103.

I guess Brett doesn't feel like the reports are valid.  Crazy after all these years.

​I have this type of info from 1975 to 1980.  I'm sorry I just quickly looked over your site and noticed where you asked.  If you have this info already my bad.  I can fill in the blanks better if you are interested and you are welcome to the reports that I have.  Brian

Here are some more.  I think this should give you the Blue, Red and Yellow FB numbers.  Factory documents and some have cover letters.  CB radios, Canopy Cordova top there is a lot of info in these reports.

Those are interesting… I have read through some of the later ones and the numbers do match up to what I have, but there are other questions on some of the other numbers they have there. Like for the 1977 numbers, it has “thru model units”…… is that only thru a specific date of 1977? I would be interested to see what is on there that can verify numbers and dates. How many of these pages do you have with cover letters and everything?

From my understanding (each division was a little different) these are the final reports.  GM production was a September to August calendar year.  The 75 - 76 report says "Final" and shows thru August.  The 76 - 77 report has a column thru August and then again thru 1977.  I know of some years that went past August for Chevy but I have very limited knowledge of Pontiac's production runs.  The 78 - 79 report has the same thru columns but it looks as if the production stopped in August.  The 79 - 80 report shows thru September so maybe 80 went an extra Month. 

The first report does not have a cover letter but all the others are dated mid September but the last which is Oct.  For all the answers you will get I'm sure there will be questions too.  The Pontiac reports that I have (1975 - 80) total 103 pages.  As far as verifying, these are Pontiac factory documents so whatever numbers they show is what it is.  Having said that sometimes the question is just what are they showing.  I'm a Buick guy so I've spent my time researching that info so I'm sure you will be able to pull out much more info with these than I ever could. 

Here is the 77 cover letter.

Can you put all 103 pages in a PDF file or zip file?

See if this works, zip made it smaller.  PDF stayed the same.

Last one is over 25meg, I'll have to split it up or Google wants to put it on their drive.  Let me know you got the others ok and then I'll split the last one up.

Pontiac donated a ton of info to GM Heritage after 2009.  I lucked out asking right at the time they found the production option totals.  Stumbled into this site and thought "hey they might like to see this"   :)

Have you got anymore of these documents? I assume there is none for colour, but any more Firebird specifc documents? I've downloaded a bunch of copies and sent it to as many people as possible to get the info out there, you have it for the earlier years too?

Sorry that is all I have for Pontiac.  GM Heritage may have them I only asked for the years I have.  If you call them and check hopefully they will help.  If not let me know.  Years ago I gave them some original art work from a designer so they tend to be a little more obligated I guess.
