1969 Pontiac Firebird Convertible (SummerFun)

Photo of a 1969 Pontiac Firebird Convertible (SummerFun)


This first gen car is a 1969 Pontiac Firebird, nicely optioned, convertible with 104K miles. It has undergone a body and mechanical overhaul over a period of 3 years with attention to maintaining its stock and original appearance. Purchased in running condition in 2002, I am the 5th owner of this car. Recently I replaced the 'cut CD player' front dash with an OEM and reinstalled the AM radio, replaced the heat riser, installed new suspension bushings, new spindles, front end suspension parts and inner fender rear wheel wells.

Factory Options

This convertible left the factory with its“YE” motor. The Turbo 400 transmission was rebuilt. It has the long tube cast iron factory headers. This car was built in Norwood Ohio with a hood tach, standard interior, gauges, power top, front disk brakes, AM radio, drivers side remote mirror, Rally rims with PMD center caps , wheel well and door chrome trim guards. The build sheet was found under the rear seat. It has the PHS documentation packet. The car still has T1 headlights, the protect-o-plate and original keys. The factory Rochester carburetor sits on the factory intake and the original distributor is there with an added electronic ignition kit.


I replaced the 4 core radiator, replaced the starter with a hi-torque unit, replaced the rear springs and put on a custom Flowmaster 40 dual exhaust system for a really cool sound.
