1969 Pontiac Firebird Convertible

For consignment, one of the 11,649 convertible Firebirds built in 1969 coming to our Hallowed Halls now in restomod form. A built Pontiac V8 under the twin scooped hood and upgraded interior are just the beginning for this Killer B. Add in some updated suspension, then sprinkle in Wilwood brakes, and mix it up with some billet bolt ons and this bee is ready to sting. This car rips, but feels safe due to the upgrades, and has the conveniences to boot.

A dual intake scooped hood with snazzy 400 badging, hood tachometer, deck spoiler, and blindinglyyellow paint scheme all come together to make this consignment the best-looking Firebird in this writer\'s opinion. Bright as the sun yellow in a recent respray form is peppered with chrome accents in the form windshield moldings, rocker and wheel arch trim, mirrors and door handles. Lest we forget the added stinging bee on each rear quarter panel that appears ready to inject some venom into the eagle formed rear side marker lights. The front of the car has the body matching bumper, and a chrome \"beak\", split in the center egg crate grille, emblazoned with the Pontiac badge. Dual horizontal LED headlights with a chromed quad split and signal lights hanging below complete the racy looking front. A dual scooped hood makes its way rearward and all paint on this car is near excellent and the gaps are good, with a few areas of misalignment on the hood front bumper area but it is very slight. Out back is a low profile spoiler dressing the trunk lid and sequential LED thin horizontal tail lights are fitted into the rear filler panel. A thin bumper in chrome is just below and dual exhaust peeksout from under the yellow rear valance. 18-inch highly polished Foose wheels are wrapped in staggered width high performance low profile rubber giving this skate a little extra buzz in the looks department.

A swing of the doors and we are greeted with black vinyl tuck and roll patterned door panels. These remain in excellent condition with their original cranks and trim, as well as pristine pulls and armrests. With a look inside the passenger compartment we see a very nicely updated interior. This includes black vinyl high back racing buckets with broad tuck and roll inserts and body hugging smooth bolsters. A custom black vinyl covered center console races from the rear to the dash and houses a glovebox, twin cup holders and the aircraft inspired horseshoe shaped shifter. A look to thedash and we see dual deeply embedded into an angled forward dash gauges and a Vintage Air controller on the right side. A 9\" touch screen Alpine stereo with 4 6x9 speakers, custom subs and 2 2.5\" tweeters is in to satiate the audiophile in you and just below are a trio of white face auxiliary gauges in the center above the shift lever. Ablack metal sprayed glovebox fronts the passenger and a Sparco rally steering wheel mounted atop a Flaming River adjustable column fronting the dash. Black carpet in good condition floods the floors and I cannot forget to mention the trunk, which is beyond amazing with the custom speaker box, clean black carpeting and trunk mounted battery.

Here\'s the money shot kids, with a sparkling yellow 400ci V8 being fed by a Holley 4-barrel carburetor perched atop a polished intake manifold. Keeping everything cool is an electric cooling fan and 3 row aluminum radiator. Backing up this beautiful as well as powerful mill, is a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and it sends power rearward to a 10 bolt rear axle. Billet fender braces have been added to the bay for a little dress up along with billet hinges and a serpentine accessory drive set up.

Virtually showroom condition, fully restored and very few flaws to speak of. We note the addition of Hotchkis subframe connectors and 3 tubeheaders that feed down to dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers added for that perfectmuscle car sound. Nothing but clean black steel here for the flooring, unibody and suspension. Speaking of which, we note independent coil spring suspension up front with tubular control arms and leaf springs in the rear. Wilwood disc brakes are seen on all 4 corners and we note some extra cross bracing for the chassis has been added.

This car lit up immediately, and with a short warm up it was ready to roll. We went for a ride and this car rips. There is no fooling around and after you get it up there, you can bring it back down with Wilwood brakes, you can swing it around corners easily with power steering, and all in the comfort of cold blowing A/C. A nice build, very good ride, albeit quick.

Talk about a restomod build, this is an academy award winning example all in excellent condition, above, below, and under the hood. Everywhere you look, you see quality build, and if you turn this car on, you\'ll hear it too. I\'m going to have to praise th
