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/

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.

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.

'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 days? 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 this video. 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.
