1969 Pontiac Firebird (War Bird)
Last updated Jul 20, 2009
This is my 1969 Firebird Convertible I have been restoring for over the past 2 years and I am almost at the end of the road. I have replaced both 1/4 panels, doors, patched the fenders and hood, replaced the trunk pan, rebuilt the motor and transmission, and all of this was done by me. I painted it myself too. The color is Windward blue with a white convertible top.
