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.

1969 Pontiac Trans Am Convertible. 1 of 8 In the world (Read Description!)
Yes! This is only One of eight! No typo! $1 MILLION + worth. For this
PROOF ITS 1 of 8:
THIS SITE USED FOR DATA! NOT MY WORDS!
"FACT: The '69 Trans Am was introduced to the press on December 8th, 1968
at Riverside Raceway in Riverside, CA. One of the cars given to the press
to test was the pre production T/A that was painted Pallidium Silver (no
stripes). Look closely at the pictures of the silver T/A and you will
notice the hood and air extractors have very sharp, hard lines, more in
line with the original design sketches. The March 1969 issue of Hot Rod
Magazine stated the hood on this silver car was fiberglass. Note: The
silver T/A was also a RA IV car. (source for the above date was Jim
Wangers' book Glory Days)
FACT: Pontiac made a total of 697 '69 Trans Ams (coupes and convertibles)
FACT: 8 of those were convertibles, 689 were coupes. (As a side note that
really has nothing to do with this, there was also a '69 Firebird
convertible used on the television program "I Dream Of Genie" that had what
appeared to be a variation of the '69 T/A hood, side air extractors mounted
on the quarter panels and a T/A style rear spoiler. The car was bright
green. I don't believe this to be a real T/A but found it interesting that
PMD would send out a Firebird mocked up similar to a T/A for a TV show.
Maybe they didn't. Maybe it was customized elsewhere.).
FACT: All 8 convertibles were RA III cars.
FACT: Of the 8 convertibles, 4 were automatics, and 4 were manuals
transmission cars. (Side Note: It has been documented that of the 8
convertible Trans Ams made, 7 are known to exist, most of those in good
condition. The 8th is still a mystery. While I have read that the 8th has
been located many different times, that seems to just be a rumor at this
point. There was a blurb in Pontiac Enthusiast Magazine several years ago
that they believed they had found this 8th convertible T/A in Western
Canada and that they'd have more info at a later date. However, I have
never heard any more about that. So until the 8th shows up in pictures
somewhere and is proved documented to be the 8th, I would assume the
location of the 8th is still unknown.)
FACT: Trans Ams were built at two different assembly plants: Norwood, Ohio
(N) and Van Nuys, California (L) (coded L for Los Angeles). The number of
Trans Ams built by each assembly plant and block code are as follows:
WQ: 506 (14 3-speeds, 492 4-speeds, including 4 convertibles)
YW: 117 ( including 4 convertibles)
WQ: 14 (1 3-speed, 13 4-speeds)
(information from the book "Pontiac Muscle Car Performance, 1955-1979, by
FACT: The original design for the Trans Am was actually proposed by the
famous auto customizer, Gene Winfield. Working with artist Harry B.
Bradley, they approached Pontiac in the fall of 1967 with sketches (I hope
to have these sketches posted here soon). Since he consulted for the model
company AMT, Winnfield knew 18 months ahead of time what the 1969 Firebirds
would look like. He and Bradley proposed the hood, scoops, air extractors
and deck lid spoiler that pretty much ended up on the Trans Am (other than
a few minor alterations). Winfield called his car the "Can Am" (is this
where Pontiac later got the name Can Am from?) and his proposed color
scheme was chartreuse and gold instead of white and blue. All of the items
Winfield and Bradley proposed were bolt-on and functional. (Info from the
book The Fabulous Firebird by Michael Lamm)

132636 / 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo Pace Car
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cxmoqkm
As one of only 5,700 cars built to commemorate the first time one car paced
both the Indy 500 and Daytona 500 in the same year, this 1980 Trans Am turbo Pace Car is one of the most exclusive
Trans Ams ever built.
Owned by one very meticulous owner and garage kept for its entire
existence, this pristine California Pontiac is one of the cleanest second
generation Trans Ams we've ever offered. Thanks to three decades of
exceptional maintenance and a little cosmetic T.L.C. from RK Motors
Charlotte's first rate restoration shop, the car presents as well today as
it did it when it rolled off the showroom floor over 30 years ago. A bright
and crisp coat of correct GM code 11 Cameo White covers 100% original body
panels which are straight, rock solid and free of waves and major
imperfections. Because this Trans Am has never been fully disassembled, it
still displays completely accurate panel gaps that are surprisingly tight
and provide the car with great panel fitment and correct factory alignment.
On top of the ghost white panels, a fresh set of tri-color outlining
stripes perfectly complements a five color 'turbo bird' hood decal and factory applied
Indianapolis 500 Pace Car door stickers to complete the look.
Under this Trans Ams "turbo" stamped
hood you'll find an all original Pontiac code YL turbocharged 301 V8 that made substantially more
twist than the mighty 6.6 liter it replaced while being significantly more
efficient. Originally conceived as an economy offering, the Pontiac 301 was
beefed up with a slew of upgrades in preparation for a Garrett TBO-305 turbocharger. Once the turbo was installed, it created a waste limited 9
PSI of Boost and helped the reborn
301 achieve 236 horsepower and a serious 345
lb./ft. of torque. Riding below a factory installed heat shield that
prevents the paint on the car's hood from bubbling, that Garrett blower is
fed by a high pressure fuel pump, cooled by a high pressure oil pump and
breathes through turbo specific Exhaust manifolds. Below the turbo, a YL 301 specific Rochester Quadrajet M4ME
800 CFM carburetor sits in front of an original HEI distributor which sends
power to the cylinders through blue Belden Edge plug wires. All the hard
parts around the motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and turbo mandated C51 air conditioning are factory
original pieces, and all the belts and hoses appear to be in good working
Behind the motor, the cars original tough and proven turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic
transmission sends power to the cars original 3.08 Posi-traction rear end,
and a standard WS6 handling package. For 1980, the WS6 package included
larger sway bars, better shocks and springs, a tighter steering gear box
and newly designed power front and rear disc brakes that, when combined
with the cars standard power steering, made for serious handling ability
and greatly reduced stopping distances. Power flows to the pavement through
pliable 225/70 white letter Goodyear Polysteel Radials that are mounted to
exclusive 15 inch 'turbo' style aluminum
The cars all original fully equipped Oyster interior features optional
doeskin vinyl with hobnail cloth inserts which creates a sophisticated
appearance. The firm and comfortable seats are nicely patterned pieces that
feel every bit as comfortable as they look, and the original brown carpet
shows very little wear. Between the seats, a clean gray console houses
chrome switches for the cars power windows behind an engine turned shift
plate, and above the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight
around the cars mirrored tops. In front of the driver, an excellent looking
engine turned dash houses crystal clear gauges above controls for heat and
air conditioning and the cars exclusive Delco-GM seek/scan stereo cassette
player. At the sides of the seats, excellent Oyster door panels that
feature bright 'turbo bird' embroidery
are detailed in pristine stainless trim and chrome door handles and door
lock buttons. Connecting the driver to the road is a correct aluminum
steering wheel that features a gray rim and sits on an optional tilt
With its clean turbocharged motor,
fantastic interior and rare low mileage, this has to be one of the nicest
Trans Am turbo Pace Cars available
