BEAUTIFUL AND RARE 1969 PONTIAC FIREBIRD CONVERTIBLE READY TO SHOW AND GO!!
THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS ’69 FIREBIRD CONVERTIBLE LOADED WITH POWER STEERING, POWER FRONT DISC BRAKES, AND POWER TOP!
1 OF 11,649 FIREBIRD CONVERTIBLES PRODUCED IN 1969…MORE RARE THEN A 1969 CAMARO CONVERTIBLE AND MORE AFFORDABLE TOO!!
This 1969 Pontiac Firebird Convertible was originally sold at Taber Pontiac in Atlanta, GA as shown in the PHS ( Pontiac Historical Services) documentation that will be included in the sale of the car. We acquired this classic from a gentleman here in the Atlanta area who owned it since 2006 and only put a few thousand miles on it in the 6 years he had it. His expanding business was occupying most of his time and he was not getting the opportunity to enjoy the car as much as he thought he would so he decided to pass it along to the next lucky owner…maybe you!! Prior to him the car spent about 5 years in New York where it received a professional restoration approximately 10 years ago. It is quite obvious that this bird was not driven during the winter months up north and prior to that spent its life in the dry Georgia Climate where it currently resides. If you have been looking for an investment quality classic convertible that is ready to be driven and enjoyed and can also win its share of trophies at the local shows then this is the one for you!! I will do my best to provide enough pictures and videos and an honest description to help you decide if this is the classic for you! Sit back and enjoy!
This ’69 Firebird Convertible has a great stance and shows off its curvy, sexy body lines just as you would want it to. Extremely solid body that appears to have its original body panels, with the exception of the 400 style hood that was added, with excellent panel gaps. A professional cosmetic restoration was done approximately 10 years ago on the body. The body is extremely straight and wears a beautiful, high quality, Palladium Silver finish. This car was originally limelight green but now has a true muscle car look in its new Silver color. This Firebird still wears the chrome trim that was included in the Decor Group package it was ordered with which includes chrome trim around wheel wells and along the rocker panels. All of the chrome looks excellent!! A rear spoiler was added and the 400 style hood was added which really give the car the sporty, muscle car stance it deserves. Overall the body is truly in fantastic condition but is not flawless. I did notice a couple of very tiny bubbles in the trim around the front nose and a few tiny chips that had been touched up. This Firebird will get thumbs up and comments everywhere you go and is ready for the local shows and I would expect it to win its share of trophies if that is your goal. Here is a walk around tour of the body and I have included a video tour at the end of the description as well.
I realize at this point that I have only shown you pics of this sweet Firebird with its top down which is how I hope you will enjoy it as much as possible but the fact is that it does also have a Black Power Convertible top that is in fantastic condition as well. It is an upgraded, heavier canvas top then the original or reproduction vinyl tops you usually see. The power top opens and closes with ease and seals up nicely and is very easy to latch down on each side. Here’s a look:
Lets drop the top again and slide inside this sweet bird. The black interior is in fantastic condition with no rips or tears and really barely any sign of wear. According to the PHS documents the interior was originally green and the car even had a green convertible top. Special thanks to whoever decided to accent the beautiful Palladium Silver finish with the black top and interior. The original center console is in great condition but is missing the plastic cover over the shifter lever that can be purchased inexpensively. A very nice AM/FM/CD player has been placed in the dash neatly and speakers were neatly mounted in the front kick panels and in the original grille area of the front dash. Dash pad looks excellent as do the door panels and carpeting. Front and rear seat belts. Gauges are very clear and function correctly. All of the wiring from the engine harness back to the rear wire harness was redone so lights and blinkers all function correctly. Nice wood grain aftermarket steering wheel was added with Pontiac logo and looks great. Have a look around:
This beautiful Firebird Convertible is powered by a completely rebuilt, very strong, correct YN coded 350/265 horsepower V8. It is not the original matching number motor but I do have a receipt from 2005 showing it was completely rebuilt and after driving it home 40 minutes and also driving it all day today I can testify that this car runs sweet and strong at all speeds! Originally a 2bbl this 350 has been upgraded with an Edelbrock Pontiac Performer 4bbl intake and carburetor. It is also breathing out a very nice set of Hedman headers that rumble out of the dual exhaust very nicely. Engine bay was nicely detailed years ago and still shows quite nicely. The Turbo 350 Automatic Transmission shifts strong and crisply and was also rebuilt back in 2005. Handling is a breeze thanks to the Power steering and newer front and rear suspension components. Braking was also nicely upgraded with a Power front disc brake kit. Electronic ignition and brand new battery. This Firebird cruises along nice and cool and is riding on a brand new set of 225/60/15 BFG Radial TA tires that are wrapped around a very nice set of original Rally II wheels. While this is not a super high horsepower car it is a super strong, great running classic that you can get in and drive and enjoy!! I am sure the next owner will be thrilled with the way this Firebird drives and handles. Here is a look and there is also a video at the end of the listing so you can hear this baby running.
Since this Classic Firebird spent most of its life in a sunny, warm and drier climate the undercarriage and inside of the trunk are extremely solid. You will also see that the underside of the doors are also the same way and appear to be original. This car also has all four of the original “Cocktail shaker” weight canisters. You will see the 2 in the trunk in the pics below. Floorpans look great and are rock solid but the undercarriage has not been highly detailed but easily could be if desired. As mentioned in the beginning I do have the PHS documents for this car and also an owners manual that will be included with the sale.
HERE IS A WALK AROUND VIDEO TOUR FOR A FINAL LOOK:
AND, HERE IS A VIDEO SO YOU CAN HEAR THIS FINE FIREBIRD RUNNING:
Hopefully you will agree that this is one sweet looking ’69 Firebird Convertible!!! This car truly looks as good in person as it does in the pictures and it is a real head turner! This will be a great investment that is a great running muscle car that can be driven and enjoyed right away!
As you can see in the pic below we also just got in a sweet ’94 Pontiac Trans Am Anniversary Edition T-Top car and will also be listing a beautiful ’78 Pontiac Trans Am Black and Gold Bandit Tribute car. Pontiacs are great collectibles and are probably some of the best values on the collector car market today with tons of upside potential.
