Flawless 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400
Dave Armstrong, the master GM mechanic who keeps my Fiero on the road, did a frame-up restoration on this flawless, award-winning 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400. (Quick, all you old-timers. What were the names of the other Firebird models available that year? No peeking.)
I'm always amazed at his ability to find NOS parts that aren't even being made anymore by anyone, especially GM.
Dave takes this car to Pontiac shows during the summer; don't miss the opportunity to see it up close and personal. This video doesn't do it justice.
If you have a GM car (or any other car or truck, for that matter), and you live in the Chicago area, take it to him. Ace Muffler, 7157 W. Irving Park Rd., near Harlem/Irving Plaza. (773)282-1444. How good is he? When he replaced the Iron Duke in my Fiero, his years of experience allowed him to take the old one out through the top instead of dropping the rear suspension and drivetrain, as Pontiac recommended. Yes, he knows his business.
And anyone who would take a car like this into Chicago evening rush-hour traffic is either very brave or knows that he could build another one just like it, which he could;) That lap-dissolve at 3:16 was necessitated by a very rude, very obscene comment and hand gesture by the female passenger in that Toyota Yaris. Pure jealousy, that's all that was.
That Firebird 400 V8 sound is music. If you have stereo speakers on your computer, turn them up.
He's also restoring a '69 Pontiac Ventura, which I shot video of and will be uploading later on.
1969 Pontiac Firebird 400 - Suzy Q
Mike took his 69 Firebird out for one last ride on August 1, 2009.
Ten days later it was shipping from New Jersey heading to Norway.
He sold it to a collector in Norway where there is a big interest in the American Muscle Car.
Long live his Firebird - Suzy Q!

Pontiac fans, have we got a treat for you! This properly restored 1968 Firebird features a fresh V8, 700R4 transmission, posi-traction rear end and a killer paint job. Add in a stack of documents that include restoration photos, and receipts, and you end up with a slam dunk of a drop-top cruiser that's ready for the show field or the open road.
The quality work throughout the body is apparent. Thousands of dollars were spent on the 2006 restoration. The floors and trunk are spotless. This was never a rusty car. Panel gaps are precise and the dark blue pearl paint is better than they were applying to new cars in 1967. It has all been buffed to an eye-popping shine. All of the chrome and stainless trim is equally nice.
Mechanically, this car is the real deal. The 8 cylinder engine is beautifully painted, and has seen only 1,250 miles since the restoration. The engine bay is exceptionally well detailed throughout. Ceramic coated headers, MSD ignition, a high torque starter, aluminum radiator, single plane polished aluminum intake, oversized water pump pulley and stainless fuel and cooler lines have all been included in the restoration.
Underneath, it's just as nice. The 700 R4 automatic transmission feeds a 3:73 posi-traction, powder coated, rear end. New 2.5" Exhaust, power front disc brakes and a park brake, cross dilled rotors, QA1 adjustable shocks and lowering spindles are also present. The restorer went through and had the control arms, front wheel wells and the frame all powder coated as well. This is a car that drives exactly the way a new car would have in 1968. The rear wheels are Budnik 20" wearing 275/35/ZR20 tires, and the fronts are Budnik 18" with 235/40/ZR18 tires. 248-974-9513
The black leather interior is very well done. The front bucket seats and the back bench seat are both in near perfect condition. The center console with wood grain detail is beautiful as well. It is also equipped with an AM/FM radio, tilt wheel and seatbelts. Door panels, carpets, and the white vinyl convertible top, are all in excellent condition.
Calling this a nice car just doesn't do it justice. This is a gorgeous car with an impeccable pedigree and a huge helping of performance thrown in just for fun. This is an investment-grade automobile, and at this price, you couldn't duplicate the restoration on this car. It's in a league of its own among early Firebirds. Call today, because like its GTO cousin, this one won't stay long! 248-974-9513
