THE FIREBIRD II represents an interpretation of future trends in powerplant and chassis design.
It was conceived as a high-speed, turbine-powered vehicle to carry its four passengers comfortably for long distances on smooth highways.
The chassis and suspension provide a smooth level ride, the brakes give adequate stopping power, and the hydraulic system furnishes the means for powering accessories for convenient and easy car control.
