1969 Pontiac Trans Am

The 1969 Pontiac Firebird underwent major restyling to incorporate revisions similar to that of the Camaro. New changes included; New rooflines, front fender wind splints, flatter wheel openings and a new front, rear and interior, as well as a slight increase in "POWER" with the Ram Air IV, previously known as the Ram Air 400. The 400 HO option was known as either the Ram Air, Ram Air II, or simply HO. In the spring of 69' Pontiac released a little publicized option package, the Trans Am Performance and Appearance Package. Pontiac paid a $5 license fee to SCCA for each Trans Am produced and sold to campaign in the SCCA's road racing series. The package was offered as a $725 option and only 689 Firebird coupes and 8 convertibles were built. * All Trans Ams were Polar White with blue racing stripes, rear spoiler, and decals. The exclusive hood had functional air intakes which could be closed by the driver and functional fender scoops designed to vent the engine bay. The Trans Am was on the peak of Pontiac performance and excitement!
