While 1969 Camaros get a lot of attention, they certainly weren't the only game in town. Their Pontiac-badged cousin had more cubes and more curves, lending them a lasting appeal that resonates in today's collector market. This fully restored 1969 Firebird is a great example of what makes these cars so great. With 350 horsepower, a dependable automatic transmission, and a killer black-on-black color combination, it doesn't get much better than this.
While this Firebird was born with good looks, its current condition comes courtesy of a complete restoration. We're not sure who restored it, but whoever it was, deserves our high praise. Just look down its laser-straight body side panels. We all know how difficult it is to make them look this good in black, not to mention what it costs. In the car world, we all know strongest color in cars sales is black, and yes, we all agree nothing looks better than a beautiful black car. The restoration included new chrome bumpers and most of the exterior trim and brightwork.
Looking into the trunk, the floor pans are beautiful and the correct spatter paint has been applied. That is mostly covered by a factory trunk mat. In the trunk, as you'll see in our photos, is the correct factory space saver spare tire and factory jack.
Power is provided by a 350ci V8 which has been rebuilt to factory specs. The block is a YN code with a 9790079 casting number and #48 HO Heads. According to the PHS report, this car was born a true factory HO car. Over the years, the block was replaced, and the car still retains the correct HO heads. The whole assembly is painted Pontiac Blue and topped with an updated 4 barrel carburetor. *Please Note:* the original Quadrajet carburetor is in the trunk and goes with the car. The engine presents with authenticity and powers desirable accessories such as power steering, and power brakes.
Underneath the F-body, the rock-solid floor pans are dressed in black. In the center, a TH400 Automatic transmission makes quick work of spinning power back to a factory 10-bolt rear end. At either side, a factory style dual exhaust system with Flowmaster muffler offers a great tone for the 350. This car also features correct power steering and correct power front disc brakes. Original style wheels round out the corners.
Inside the car, you'll find more great Pontiac styling wrapped in black, with rich wood grain applique. At ground level, fresh black carpet covers the floor, sealed by Fisher Body door sill plates. The dark shade continues onto the dashboard which offers factory instrumentation as well as controls for the heat & defrost system. The factory radio is in place and works. A long center console flows down the middle between clean black bucket seats, while a taut black headliner stretches above.
Included in the sale of this impressive Pontiac is PHS documentation that provides insight into the cars' origins as well as two original broadcast sheets that offer specifics regarding the car's options. This fine bird was built in the Norwood, Ohio Assembly plant, and built on July 3rd 1968. She came off the line as a true triple black Firebird – no color change on this beauty!
