1969 Firebird Trans Am

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. You can see more pictures of it on my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/26329029@N06/sets/72157628096278657/with/6382984169/

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 vehicle PROOF ITS 1 of 8: THIS SITE USED FOR DATA! NOT MY WORDS! http://www.classicalpontiac.com/members/2/4.html "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: NORWOOD: WQ: 506 (14 3-speeds, 492 4-speeds, including 4 convertibles) YW: 117 ( including 4 convertibles) WH: 45 XN: 9 VAN NUYS: WQ: 14 (1 3-speed, 13 4-speeds) YW: 5 WH: 1 (information from the book "Pontiac Muscle Car Performance, 1955-1979, by Pete McCarthy) 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.

133042 / 1969 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/dymdj9h 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 market today. 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 battery. 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 Polyglas tires. 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 car. If you've ever dreamed of owning one of Pontiac's hottest creations, don't miss your change to take home this investment grade 1969 Trans Am.

http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! 1969 Pontiac Firebird History The Pontiac Firebird was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors between 1967 and 2002. The Firebird was introduced the same year as the automaker's platform-sharing model, the Chevrolet Camaro. The first generation Firebirds had a characteristic Coke bottle styling. Unlike its cousin, the Chevrolet Camaro, its bumpers were integrated into the design of the front end and its rear "slit" taillights were inspired by the Pontiac GTO. Both a two-door hardtop and a convertible were offered through the 1969 model year. The 1969 model received a major facelift with a new front end design made of an Endura bumper housing the headlights and grilles. The instrument panel and steering wheel were revised. The ignition switch was moved from the dashboard to the steering column with the introduction of GM's new locking ignition switch/steering wheel. VIN 223379U100518 This beautiful Firebird runs nice and strong. It came out of Michigan and has had a body off rebuild. The car has never been races, but is a very fun driver that gets the looks! It has won several 1st place trophies and awards in its class at local car shows.

133014 / 1933 Ford Speedstar
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7budpcs If you're looking for a world class street rod, look no further than this '33 SpeedStar Vicky. A former Street Rodder cover and Good Guys award winner, this rod features a Rat's Glass SpeedStar Vicky body with a full custom Paul Atkins interior. Assembled by the team at Alloway's Hot Rod Shop, this is truly one of the finest street rods on the market today. With a shape that would turn heads in primer, what better to do than spray it with the brightest color available? Dupont's Fly Yellow was chosen for the job and performs its task remarkably well. Joshua Shaw was called in to add some finishing touches including a green and purple triple pinstripe and tasteful custom graphics above the grille and under the rear window. Up front, a sweeping custom grille by Jim Rench of Rench's Hot Rod Stuff sits between a pair of King Bee headlights. Out back, Alloway taillights hide out underneath the lip of the body. Naturally, all wiring has been masterfully tucked away. Open the side tile hood and you'll be greeted by a purely modern GM LS1 featuring a polished Weiand intake, Alloway EFI and K&N air filter. Other noteworthy features include a custom copper radiator by Steve Long, a Powermaster alternator and Taylor ignition wires. The setup breathes through Sanderson headers that exhale through 2 ¼ inch pipes with glass pack mufflers. Backing that LS1 is a Borings-prepped 700R4 automatic transmission with a B&M torque converter and a Lokar Performance Parts shifter that make driving this rod simple. A custom driveshaft by Sonny's connects the transmission the Winter's quick-change rear end residing in a fully polished independent rear suspension. Up front, you'll find a fully independent stainless Heidt's front complete with Aldan coilovers, and a Sweet rack and pinion steering setup. Braking is handled by a Wilwood four-wheel disc setup with a Ford Racing master cylinder. Interior master Paul Atkins covered the entire cabin in a mix of rich tan leather and Ostrich. The reclining front buckets are extremely supportive and look great sitting atop the tan wool carpet. Steering controls are provided by an Ididit tilt column with a Billet Specialties steering wheel wrapped in Ostrich. Instrumentation comes courtesy of modified Classic Industries gauges placed in a Carriage Works insert that looks at home in the SpeedStar dash. A Sony head unit is mounted in the headliner, well within reach of the driver. The pedals and shifter are both Lokar pieces. This is a truly world class car built by some of the best in the business. Cars like this usually leave our showroom in a hurry so, if you're in the market for a full show car that is an absolute blast to drive and own, don't miss out on this '33 Vicky.
