Rare 1969 Firebird Comanche

An Internet friend has restored a rare Canadian market only 1969 Firebird Comanche.

This Firebird marks the second in this series of Firebirds that were modified by the dealer and then sold to the public as a special package or option etc.. The "Comanche" Firebird was only available at 3 dealerships in Canada.

The dealers ordered a loaded Firebird from the factory, each with a gold leather interior (the only color available in leather). They were then re-painted a non-Firebird gold color with white accents. The options below were added (some were already added at the factory) and a "Comanche" Firebird was born.

Below is the full list of options as shown on the brochure:
Vinyl roof with special emblems
Marchal fog lamps
High speed driving lights with quartz bulbs
Special chrome hood louvers
Turbo Hydramatic or 4-speed close ration (either included a console)
Variable ration power steering
Front power disc brakes
Remote trunk release
Radio
Door guards
Mirror group (vanity mirror and remote control mirror) Custom seat belts
Rally mag wheels
Special sport tilt steering wheel
Bucket seats (with the full leather interior)
Rally Gauges with clock or tach
Floor mats (front and rear)
Koni adjustable shocks
Special tire pump
Heavy duty air cleaner
Heavy duty radiator
Pirelli tires with special suspension
Power top (convertibles only)
Rear defogger

Estimates are that only about 30 of these were converted for sale to the public, and rumor has it Paul Newman may have bought one.

Hope you enjoy the attached album!

Besides the location of where it was built, what are the differences between a Firebird Comanche and other Firebirds?
