AWESOME RESTOMOD, PONTIAC 400 POWER, COLD AC, 17 INCH RALLY II WHEELS, SLICK CAR
Pontiac fans rejoice! If this stunning 1969 Firebird were a Camaro, it would cost twice as much. Instead you get a brilliant resto-mod with big horsepower, a slick interior, and a very modern look that is 100% Pontiac.
The excitement division certainly delivers with the Firebird and its innovative Endura-Flex bumper that gives their version of the F-body a very distinctive look. This cool resto-mod takes it up a few notches with gorgeous Sedona Orange paint (a 2011 Harley-Davidson color) over pretty much unaltered factory sheetmetal. They got it nice and straight, put it together with ever so much care so it all lines up just right, then buffed and smoothed it for an impossible shine. That's a factory Ram Air hood with tach and an OEM rear spoiler, because there's really no point in trying to do any better than the factory. Black stripes were custom made for the flanks, mirroring the shape of the fender line and spelling out "FIREBIRD" in big block letters on the quarters, just in case you didn't know. The Endura-Flex nose is in great shape with no cracking, and the rear bumper is beautifully re-chromed to really shine against the sizzling orange paint (I suppose Harley-Davidson knows a bit about what looks good with chrome). This is one slick 'Bird.
The interior is almost entirely stock, but in an F-body, that's a good thing. Fresh seat covers on the original buckets and what appears to be an original back seat anchor the black passenger compartment and give it a racy look. The dash is also OEM, complete with factory A/C and a set of aftermarket auxiliary gauges stuffed into the original spots just to the right of the main cluster. Modern A/C controls take the place of the troublesome cable-operated originals and a B&M shifter lives in the console to manage the TH350 3-speed automatic. Correct OEM-style carpets and the factory AM/FM radio in the dash are nice ties to the past, but there's also a new AM/FM/CD stereo head unit underneath. The trunk is also nicely done, with a correct reproduction trunk mat that fits extremely well.
Pontiac's 400 cubic inch V8 really needs no help in the horsepower department, so it was rebuilt and dropped back between the fenders. There's plenty of chrome, of course, including the valve covers and accessories, and it goes quite nicely with the Pontiac Turquoise big block underneath. It barks to life with a single turn of the key and runs like a finely-tuned big block should with a wonderful baritone idle and big-league torque. Trick cast iron manifolds feed a recent dual exhaust system with an X-pipe, Flowmaster mufflers, and chrome tips borrowed from a second-generation Trans Am for the ideal Pontiac touch. The undercarriage is quite clean, and it sits right thanks to freshened suspension bits all around. Those 17-inch wheels are very trick Rally II replicas from Year One and they wear 255/40/17 BFGoodrich radials all around.
Fast, handsome, and full of traditional styling cues, this is the resto-mod Pontiac fans dream of. Call today!
