I wasn't expecting this guy to drive up as I was shooting other cars at Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, but I'm glad he did, and I'm glad he left the engine on long enough to capture that 303 Exhaust note.
This is the original Trans Am, before the second generation went all flaps and vents and giant spoilers and shaker hoods and screaming chickens and "Smokey and the Bandit".
White with blue stripes and blue interior. Pure and simple.

One of just 689 Trans Am coupes built In 1969, this extensively restored
Ram Air III model shows just 44,000 original miles. With a classic look and
all the right options, this is one of the finest Ram Air III T/A's on the
Born at the Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility on September 17th, 1969,
this T/A lead a pampered life. Over 21 years of its existence were spent in
a private storage facility safe from the elements. Today, with an all
original body that's dressed in a glossy layer of correct GM code 50 Cameo
White basecoat, correctly re-stenciled Tyrol Blue racing stripes and
correctly placed Trans Am call-outs, it stands proud as a highly desirable
example of a milestone in Pontiac performance history.
All the correct parts are present including the new-for-'69 Endura nose
piece, twin scoop hood, simulated side vents and rear spoiler. All chrome
and stainless look factory fresh as does the glass work.
Lift that ducted hood and you'll find the original Pontiac 400 V8. Wearing
the correct casting number, date code and partial VIN, this real deal 400
has been rebuilt to factory specs with the exception of the compression
ratio which has been lowered to accommodate lower octane gasoline. The
block is painted a proper coat of turquoise and topped with a Rochester
Quadrajet carburetor, Winters aluminum intake, and original "D" Exhaust port heads. The bay is 100% show ready
with correct finishes, reproduction hoses and a tagged Delco Energizer
Underneath the car, an immaculately restored undercarriage houses the
original Muncie M-20 four-speed manual transmission that sends power to the
original 10-bolt Safe-T-Trak rear end equipped with 3.55 gears. Suspension
retains its original double A-arm setup out front while rear leafs keep the
rear end planted. At the front, N41 power steering provides easy turns
while the JL2 power front disc and rear drum brakes provide modern stopping
power. At the corners, 14 inch GM Rally II wheels are wrapped in Goodyear
Inside, a correct GM code 200 blue vinyl interior contrasts well against
the white exterior. Re-covered bucket seats sit atop fresh carpet
underneath a flawless headliner. In the back, a rare folding rear seat
offers trunk access. From the driver's seat, the original steering wheel
sits in front of a clean original dash that features a speedometer as well
as an inclusive gauge that monitors fuel levels, oil pressure, generator
output and temperature. A wood applique delete sits where the factory clock
or optional stacked gauges would go. To the right, the Hurst shifter is
topped with a factory optioned 'wood' shift knob.
This T/A is backed by extensive documentation including owner history,
Pontiac Historical Society information, pictures of the car before
restoration and paperwork that covers most of the work performed on the

1969 Trans Am 1 owner barn find
I recently purchased this 1 owner 1969 Trans Am. It was parked in 1982 when
the owner was transferred out of state. It is a Ram Air III 4 speed car.
Other than some surface rust it really has no real rust to speak of.
UPDATE: The car has been sold and now lives with its new owner in the
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)

Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid

The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

'67 Crusher Camaro vs '70 Super Bee 1,500-Mile Burnout-Fest! - Roadkill Episode 19
On this episode of Roadkill, it's Freiburger in the Super Bee versus
Finnegan in the '67 Camaro as the guys make the trip
from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City and back to go race at the Midnight
Drags at Rocky Mountain Raceways in hopes of running the Bee on Nitrous for the first time since the Hemi was
installed. Which car will work best over 1,500 miles of mayem in three
The 700hp, blown Crusher Camaro is HOT ROD's longest-term
project car, surviving 20 years at the magazine. David Freiburger's 675hp
Hemi 1970 Dodge Super Bee is his first car, having been with him 30 years.
Both cars suffer from magazine-project-car syndrome: getting brief spurts
of attention followed by long periods of neglect. For the first time in
years, both cars were running and driving at the same time.
The Crusher Camaro is a
'67 model that was purchased for $700 in 1994 during California's
car-crushing program; it was rescued from the parking lot of a junkyard
where it was about to be handed in for crushing. It's been through a number
of engines in its time at HOT ROD magazine, and the most recent is a 489ci
bi-block (4.280 bore, 4.250 stroke) with 9.3:1 compression. It has a small,
224-at-0.050 Comp hydraulic roller cam, Holley oval-port heads, and a
Weiand 8-71 Supercharger with two Holley
850HP carbs. The engine makes 700 hp and 720 lb-ft on 5 psi Boost, but is tame enough to drive anywhere.
The transmission is a Gearstar 4L85E that's really awesome, and the Ford
9-inch is loaded with 3.50 gears. The car is styled with Center Line Auto
Drags and a nose-high stance to look like a street machine of the early
¹80s. It has run 10.60 at 125 in the quarter-mile in the same trim seen in
Freiburger's ¹70 Dodge Super Bee is powered by a 10:0:1-compression, 484ci
Hemi with ported iron cylinder heads and a Comp solid roller camshaft. It
also uses a Holley Dominator carb on a custom dual-plane intake manifold by
Dick Landy, whose shop built the long-block in 1995. It made 675 hp on the
engine Dyno, but in
the car is has smaller headers, fairly restrictive Exhaust, and a mechanical fan that pull it down
to around 600. The trans is a Gearstar 727 Torqueflite backed by a Gear
Vendors under/overdrive, and the Strange 60 rearend has 3.73 gears (a
little too high for the
natuarally aspirated combo). The car weights 4,050 pounds with the driver,
and has run 11.80 at 118 mph on the motor.
