Lot S124 1969 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air III Auto

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.

132913 / 1969 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7gnuc8u As one of only 46 4-speed Ram Air IV Trans Ams produced for the 1969 model year, this fully restored, 51,445 mile time capsule features all original west coast sheetmetal, a complete numbers matching drivetrain, a highly original interior and full documentation that dates all the way back to the its dealership checklist. According to the Pontiac Historical Services documentation included with the sale of this badass tin indian pony car, it was assembled at GM's Norwood Ohio manufacturing facility in June of 1969 and shipped to Bud Meadows Pontiac in Seattle, Washington on July 21st of that same year. After serving as top-notch showroom eye candy for exactly two months, its papers were signed by Seattle resident Carlos Palencia and it began a 36 year run as an immaculately maintained, one owner west coast muscle car. When the second and current owner, an avid Firebird collector, took its keys in the summer of 2005, he inherited a 95% complete survivor that was probably one of the most authentic Trans Am Ram Air IVs in the world. So, instead of polishing the car into an over-restored beauty queen, he documented every square inch of its body and initiated a highly accurate 18 month rotisserie restoration which used as many original parts as possible. When the first Ram Air IV rolled out of the factory, Pontiac brass could hardly keep a straight face as they announced it would produce 'only' 345 horsepower. And rightfully so, because after this car's current owner had its original engine blue printed and rebuilt to AMA specifications by highly regarded Pontiac expert Dan Jensen, it hit the Dyno with a whopping 438 horsepower and 452 lb./ft. of torque! At the top of the engine, a fully functional induction system feeds roughly 50 degree air into a correct Rochester Quadrajet 4-barrel carburetor which is bolted to an original Winter aluminum intake. That intake sends a high octane air/fuel mixture into original round port cylinder heads which, with the help of high performance rocker arms, a bigger cam, modern scat connecting rods and an Arma-steel crankshaft, provide the kind of combustion that makes this Trans Am one of the nastiest muscle cars on the road. Spark for that combustion is provided by a factory points distributor which sends power from a modern Crane coil and ignition module to date-coded Packard TV R Suppression wires. Exhaust from that combustion is handled by original long branch Exhaust manifolds which roar into a stainless true dual Exhaust system. And heat from that combustion is controlled by a leak-free radiator which is hooked to reproduction GM hoses via original tower clamps and an original plastic fan shroud that features original factory grease marks. Behind the high revving motor, an original Muncie M-21 close ratio 4-speed transmission sends power to an original 10 bolt rear end that's still equipped with an unmolested Safe-T-Track differential and mountain climbing 3.90 gears. That solid drivetrain is centered in the cars original front double A-arm and rear leaf spring suspension which, thanks to the standard Y96 ride and handling package, includes stiffer shocks, better springs and a heavy duty front stabilizer bar. And at the corners, power flows to the pavement through original 14 inch GM Rally II wheels which spin familiar Goodyear Polyglas F70-14 white letter tires around pristine stainless trim rings and awesome "PMD" branded center caps. Swing open this Trans Am's solid white doors and you'll find a correct GM code 200 blue vinyl interior that's a nice mix of both top notch factory equipment and high quality reproduction pieces. The original standard bucket seats, which we're simply re-covered during the restoration, provide comfortably firm support and display no fading or tears. Between those seats, a familiar Hurst shifter still features its factory optioned 'wood' shift knob. At the front of the car, an excellent looking original dash hangs a rare 'stacked' gauge pod, which was added during the restoration, above controls for the heater and an original Delco AM radio. And behind the cockpit, the car's fully restored trunk props an original spare tire and jack assembly on a correct houndstooth mat.
