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)

134296 / 1970 Cadillac DeVille
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/qghjtdo
Mixing one of the biggest and smoothest V8s GM ever produced with
mirror-like paint and a spacious, comfortable interior, this classy DeVille
puts a new twist on 'Standard of The World'. And if you've always dreamed
of owning a big American cruiser that's high on style and loaded with
comfort, it's just the opportunity you've been waiting for!
Not completely devoid of character, like so many traditional, frame-off
restorations, this road-ready drop-top is an exhilarating combination of
factory-correct blitz and tasteful glam. Appearing both solemn and
official, its Jet Black paint reflects an excellent shine that literally
glows when crouching under the sun. And that modern two-stage covers what
appears to be clean, mostly original sheetmetal which displays no sign of
botched repairs or historic damage.
Cadillac, once the world's leading proprietor of fine, 16-cylinder motor
coaches, knows a thing or two about performance. For example, this
convertible's correct, 472 cubic inch monster block, which is one of the
largest V8s ever produced, turns stout 10 to 1 compression into a smooth
And while GM Powertrain did provide engines that generated more power, this
mill was designed to idle silently, create instantaneous thrust and emit
merely a whisper from its tailpipe. Judging by the appearance of the car's
satin black bay, it's been on a regular maintenance schedule, benefitting
from periodic, full-scale detailing. Many of the motor's original ancillary
items have been replaced by flashier hardware including: a chrome,
single-snorkel air cleaner, chrome valve covers, a polished radiator
overflow and an HEI distributor that's complete with 8mm Hi Temp wires. And
thanks to two Optima gel cell batteries, the car fires so smoothly you may
not even notice it's running.
Behind that big engine, an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed spins a traditional
GM 12-bolt that's complete with smooth 2.98 gears. Speaking of smooth, the
car's long and low suspension, which is augmented with Air Ride
Technologies air bags, glides over almost any imperfection with virtually
no drama. And all that proven hardware rolls on slick Centerline Smoothies
which spin 245/40R20 Firestone Firehawks around detailed Cadillac crests.
If you're a fan of big time comfort, you'll be absolutely thrilled by this
DeVille's custom black interior! The '63 Cadillac front and chopped rear
seats are firm, supple and display virtually no signs of aging. In front of
those half power, half manual seats, a modernist, crack-free dash hangs a
contoured instrument panel between a billet mirror, a modern Pioneer CD
player, controls for the car's Air Ride Technologies suspension and
chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, a custom '59 Cadillac
steering wheel spins a chrome horn ring around a tilting column and simple
chrome gear selector. And behind the passengers, a Dynamat-lined trunk
seals a giant subwoofer behind a Pioneer CD changer, two JL Audio amps, a
small bass tube, a fifth Centerline/Firestone combo and a small, South
County Customs jack.
This DeVille is an extremely high-quality cruiser with no question marks
attached. Don't miss your opportunity to own one of the coolest Caddys on
the planet! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today.
