The 1969 Firebird had an identity all its own, especially when equipped with the new Trans Am Performance and Appearance Package, which included the Ram Air III 400ci HO engine. Finished only in Polar White with Blue stripes and accents, the T/A employed a special Ram Air hood, sculpted air extractor vents on the front fenders and an integrated rear spoiler. Of 697 Trans Ams built that year, only 114 of them came with the turbo 400 automatic. This award-winning '69 Ram Air III automatic is the recipient of an eighteen month concours-quality restoration, completed in spring 2005 by Aloha Automotive Services of Port Washington, Wisconsin.
After painstaking surface preparation, the body was sprayed with four coats of Cameo White paint followed by Tyrol Blue stripes and 4 coats of clear. The resulting exterior fit and finish speak for themselves. All chrome was treated to triple plating by AIH of Dubuque, Iowa, and all stainless trim hand polished. The Rally II wheels were stripped and re-painted, and shod with period correct Goodyears.
The rebuilt 400 HO engine has been refinished and detailed to factory standards using only correctly date coded components. The engine compartment retains its original steel hood and Ram Air pans, and the detailed undercarriage is factory correct, including spiral shocks, a replacement fuel tank, new stainless fuel/brake lines and full length Gardner aluminized Exhaust.
The interior was renewed with new carpeting, upholstery and trim, and many components reconditioned using products from Just Dashes and Legendary Auto Interiors. Wiring harnesses were also replaced.
Since its restoration in 2004/2005 this car has been stored in an environmentally controlled garage and transported in an enclosed trailer.
Lot S125 1970 Chevrolet Nova SS 396 375 HP Auto
With the proper equipment, Chevrolet's Nova SS was an affordable bomb of a
car, a formidable runner right off the showroom floor. The Nova grew from
the Chevy II, Chevrolet's entry into the budget compact market. Engine
choices expanded as the car grew in size until in 1968 it was redesigned on
the Camaro platform,
enabling the use of the 396, and renamed the Nova. Chevy thus had another
big-block arrow in its quiver. Lighter than almost anything else from GM,
the Nova SS396 was incredibly quick, especially the 375 horsepower L78 version.
Meanwhile, the visual side of the SS package remained as low key as ever,
as demonstrated by this good-looking 1970 SS396. Cortez Silver with a Black
interior, the car has been thoroughly restored and detailed to the highest
level of finish. The numbers-matching drivetrain comprises the L78
big-block (more accurately a 402) and turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission turning a
12-bolt Positraction differential. Power brakes with front discs keep
things under control.
Interior options include bucket seats, console, AM radio and a soft-rim
Sport steering wheel. The few outward clues to the car's performance tell
the story: SS badges, black-accented grille and tail and simulated hood air
intakes, not to mention those "396" callouts. Magnum-style wheels and
Firestone Wide Ovals add a bit more show to this handsome big-block Nova.

132152 / 1970 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bmsk3es
This spectacular, 100% numbers matching 1970½ Trans Am Ram Air IV is one
of only 59 built with a 4-speed, and fully documented with a build sheet. A
life-long west coast car, this was one of only 24 RA IV cars built at the
Van Nuys assembly plant.
Gaps are exemplary, panel fit is very good, and this might be the most well
assembled early F-body I've ever seen. The Polar White paint matches the
factory finish exactly, and the decals are reproductions. Out back, the
ducktail spoiler fits beautifully and carries the correct TRANS AM
Simply selecting RPO 342 got you the famed 370-horsepower round-port Ram
Air IV engine, which delivered much more than simply an advertised 25 hp
over the standard D-port Ram Air III engine. Atop that intake and under the
solenoid-operated scoop, the Rochester Quadrajet carburetor makes its home.
The cylinder heads are 614 castings, the block is a correct WW unit, the
intake is a correct 97999 casting, and the unique Ram Air IV Exhaust manifolds have been beautifully
The Muncie M20 4-speed manual is the original, matching numbers piece,
while out back, the RA IV was the only Firebird to receive a 12-bolt rear
end as standard equipment (this one is packed with 3.73 gears and a Posi
for explosive acceleration). The heavy-duty power disc brakes have been
fully rebuilt, and correct F41-spec shocks are at all four corners. It's
finished off with a set of original date-coded Rally II wheels and
Firestone Wide Ovals.
This one sports its original code 211 Medium Bright Blue Vinyl interior.
The seats and door panels have been reconditioned and re-dyed, but the
carpets are spectacularly original, as is the headliner. The trunk features
that fitted floor mat, as well as a full-sized spare tire with complete

I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1969 Pontiac Firebird.
It's powered by the 400 V8 4 bbl, backed by a four-speed manual trans. It
really looks slick inside and out. It's equipped with the dual hood
scoops, hood mounted tach, rally wheels, and very nice blue metallic paint.
The interior has been completely restored and looks nearly new. These are
excellent driving and handling cars. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for watching!

Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The
performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a MustangDyno). This car has an LS7
engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at
the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the
power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of
these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and
investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by
Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!
