1969 Pontiac Trans Am 400 - Muscle Car For Sale (Click Here)

Description:

The age of the Trans Am is upon us: There is no collector vehicle on the market today in more demand than Pontiac’s premier performance car. And as the generation that came of age in the 70’s continues to enter the hobby, expect this trend to strengthen over the next decade.

The one that started it all, and one of only 689 built, this gorgeous, numbers matching, four speed 1969 Trans Am is amongst the rarest and most desirable muscle cars ever built. With the PHS documentation for the car including invoice this T/A is at home in any high end collection.

Standard features of the 1969 Trans Am Package: 400 cubic inch Ram Air III engine (335 horsepower, 430 lb-ft torque, 10.75:1 compression, 4-barrel Quadrajet carb, chrome valve covers, long branch exhaust manifolds with dual exhausts,) floor mounted three-speed manual transmission, 3.55:1 Ratio 10 Bolt Safe-T-Track locking rear axle, exclusive Trans Am hood with twin functional scoops "ramming" cool air directly into the carb, air extractors on front fenders allow hot engine compartment air to escape behind the front wheels, high effort quick ratio power steering, high effort power front disc brakes, heavy duty shocks, heavy duty springs, one inch diameter front stabilizer bar, front lower spoiler, floating rear deck lid spoiler (marked as D80 on data plate,) Trans Am paint scheme ((Cameo Ivory (50 on data plate) with twin Tyrol Blue stripes. Striping was used on hood, roof, deck lid and spoiler (pedestals only) ending in a solid blue tail panel.)) Trans Am decals grace the front fenders and rear spoiler, and the grilles are blacked out.

Present is all original equipment installed on the car. In addition to the code 322 Trans Am package, the PHS paperwork shows the 354 M20 four speed transmission, 454 Rally II wheels and the 472 center console. Somewhere through the years previous owners made the car more interesting by adding tilt wheel, the wood-grain shift knob and a factory AM radio.

FOR THE NUMBER GURUS: 1. Engine stamp : WQ (400 cu. In., 335 hp., 10.75 :1 compression ratio., 4 bbl. carb., manual trans.,) Firebird 400 Ram Air III. 2. Engine casting: 9790071 = ‘68 / ‘69 400ci.

Distributor 1111952, 9C11 date code. Transmission stampings P9C15A (M20,) VIN 29N105834. Rear axle code ZH=Safe–T–Track, 3:55 ratio.

Treated to a high-quality cosmetic restoration, this Trans Am is largely original. The paint lies flat and smooth on all panels, the Tyrol Blue stripes and tail treatment is excellent, but the original panel gaps remain as Norwood set them. Chrome parts from nose to tail are in excellent shape as are the stainless pieces. The original Rally II wheels hold newer 215/70/14 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. The glass is in great shape and all doors and lids close as they should. This is a very clean, unmolested car.

An item commonly missing is the space saver spare in the trunk. Not only is it there as it should be, the correct inflator bottle still resides there, as well. The original jack sits on top of the new trunk mat and original trunk floor, and the reproduction jack decal is correctly applied to the trunk lid.

Underneath you’ll find undercoating applied when the car was new over the original floor-pans. There’s a new fuel tank, a newer exhaust system, new ACDelco shocks, rebuilt brakes and a sorted suspension, but the majority of the components are original. Being protected you can enjoy the car without worry, which is important as this car drives better than ANY pony car we’ve ever had. No bumps, squeaks or rattles invade the cabin, the brakes are spot on, the steering is fantastic, the motor makes plenty of power and the transmission is better than perfect. These cars were meant to be driven, and this one’s exceptional at it.

Inside you’ll find a nearly original cabin. New upholstery covers the original frames, new cranks operate the windows, there’s a new carpet set on the floor with reproduction Pontiac floor mats and the aforementioned installed parts, but nearly everything else is original to the car. The door panels, A pillar moldings, kick panels, dash, console and more were installed at Norwood and remain in excellent shape.

How many ’69 Trans Ams do you see for sale in a given year? We sold three in 2008, all north of $105,000.00. How many fewer yet are as original and drivable as this one? This numbers matching 1969 Pontiac Trans-Am would be a fine addition to any significant Trans-Am collection. Best of all, because it’s never required a trailer queen level restoration, it can also be driven and enjoyed. Don’t wait on this one!
