You're going to love looking over every inch of this 1969 Pontiac Firebird because there is a terrific color-coordinated style everywhere (including the undercarriage!) And everything else - from the well-done interior to the strong V8 power - all give you the impression of an all-around quality build.
Let's start with what immediately grabs your attention, the paint. Pontiac fans know this is Carousel Red, and the rest of us know this as GM's iconic Hugger Orange. It's a genuine '69 Pontiac color, but you've never seen it like this before. There has been so much invested in painting it from end-to-end you'll swear you're looking at a candy-coated Firebird. It's obvious this coupe was built for show, and so a huge investment in the best panel fit and straightest sheetmetal was made before the primer even went onto the body. Competing with the paint for shine is the outstanding brightwork in places like around the headlights, the beak-like front bumper, and the stylish rear bumper. There are iconic sporty touches like the dual hood scoops, tachometer mounted on the hood, and full-width rear spoiler. Plus, there's added performance style with the black hood stripes, large polished dual exhaust tips, and cool set of Sport Muscle 15-inch wheels.
Inside is another place where the custom look of the restoration is absolutely evident. We bet what you instantly noticed how the bold exterior paint was custom applied to the glove box lid, steering column, and three-spoke sports steering wheel. But while this has a bold look, it's also surrounded by quality pieces. The black vinyl on the seats, door panels, and headliner feel like today is 1969. There's nice wood-like paneling on the center console that also matches the texture surrounding the gauges and AM/FM/cassette stereo. And as you look at the controls, you'll see a setup-for factory-style air conditioning. This has been converted to modern R134a, and it will need a servicing before blowing ideally cold again.
The engine bay has a show-ready look with color-matched inner walls and a ton of upgraded brightwork (even the hood hinges are artfully bright!) And there were thousands $$$$ invested about 4k miles ago rebuilding the engine, so it's much more than just the show-worthy shine. This is a performance-built 350 cubic-inch motor that has upgrades such as an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and ProComp high-rise intake. The V8 fires up eagerly, idles smoothly, and makes a nice rumble from the dual exhaust. But when you look at those stainless pipes in the pictures, something else grabs your attention. The full undercarriage, suspension components, and even the traction bars are painted orange/red. This is absolutely the kind of appearance that wins big awards. But don't be afraid to drive it to the car shows. With features such as power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and power brakes w/discs up front, this Firebird was built to be just as much a Saturday night cruiser as it is a Sunday show winner.
Here's an exceptionally clean and custom build that even includes the restoration receipts and factory buildsheet. We know you've been doing a mental tally, and so you know the paint and bodywork alone would cost you more than this Firebird is asking. So no matter if you call it orange or red, you'll be green with envy if you miss out on this deal. Call today!!!
