1969 Pontiac Firebird

It's hard not to get excited about a red 1969 Pontiac Firebird convertible. After all, with less than 11,700 of these built, over 45 years ago, it's getting harder and harder to find V8 examples with bodies that look this good.Let's start with what immediately grabs your attention, the paint. Pontiac fans know this is Carousel Red, but everyone love recognizes this iconic shade that was also called Hugger Orange elsewhere in the GM family. It's a genuine '69 Pontiac color, but this has a much better presentation than the factory with the kind of gloss and shine that comes from modern paint practices. The design of these first-gen cars really lived up to the Firebird name, with a beak-like nose and slotted sheetmetal that looks like a bird in flight. This one is a true high-flyin' Firebird right down to its rare factory rear spoiler. But the full iconic appearance would never be complete without all this trim present like it is here. Add in the correct Rally II wheel package with an appearance that perfectly bring together the brightwork and the black folding roof. Now you've got a really cool '69 droptop.You paid a little bit more for a Pontiac back in the day, and the difference can be seen inside where there's a delightfully upscale black interior. The matching pattern on the vinyl high-back bucket seats and door panels look great thanks to an investment in keeping these fresh. It's a comfortable center console car that has its fashionable black broken up by wood paneling running in-between the buckets. This one has all the right factory pieces in place from the AM radio to provisions for factory air to make a great impression everywhere you go. Like a good sports car, the driver's focus is on the three-spoke steering wheel and deep dual-pod gauges. Right next to that is the switch for the power convertible top. There's even an auxiliary gauge to keep you updated on what's going on under the hood.The engine bay is filled with V8 power. The presentation is a lesson in how factory-correct can also look bold. That's why you see everything from the correct turquoise block to the Frigidaire compressor correctly placed under the hood. But more than just a stellar presentation for originality lovers, this 400 cubic-inch four-barrel V8 has the kind of power we all lust after. Just twist the key and let the rumble of the dual exhaust do all of your talking. While this big motor makes plenty of big power, there's also power steering, a three-speed automatic, front disc brakes, and new Cooper Cobra tires to give this a true all-around satisfying feeling on the road.There have been all the right investments in keeping a very original '69 Firebird ready to look and feel great on any sunny day cruise. These droptops are getting more rare everyday, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
