One Owner: 1969 Pontiac Firebird

This 1969 Pontiac Firebird has been sitting in a barn for the last 20 years. The car is located in Stafford Springs, Connecticut and there are a lot of pictures and a video that can be seen here on eBay. There are 4 days remaining in the auction and the high bid is currently $6,400. The car is said to be a one owner car and the original paperwork is available to prove it.

This car appears to be a survivor more than a project because it looks original and unmodified. There is not mention as to whether the paint is original but the odometer shows 95,000 miles and the black interior looks original. The ad states that the car was started regularly and currently runs and drives. The rocker panels and trunk have rust and the underside is coated in surface rust.

The seller states that the car has the original 350 cubic inch V8 Pontiac engine mated to a 3 speed manual transmission. The VIN codes out to a 1969 Sports Coupe built in Norwood, Ohio. The body tag located on the cowl indicates that the original color of the Firebird was Code 55 Crystal Turquoise. The interior code is 208 which is a standard black vinyl bucket interior.

I am not sure what the final price for this car would be but, if you like an original, one owner 1969 Pontiac Firebird, they don’t come along very often. This car doesn’t have the top performer engine or 4 speed but it could be driven while you are restoring it. Let me know what memories this car brings back for some of you.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! This is how I like ’em! Unadorned, unmolested, V8 power with a manual transmission. If’n it had a four speed instead of three and was painted maroon this would be a match for my sister’s college car. If the price stays near where it is I would love to know it sold to a restorer who will honor it’s basic-ness.

    My favorite Firebird body style! I was looking at the title which is amazing that it’s the original and noticed that ‘Gertrude’, the original buyer of the car, and if she is still alive, will be 99 years old in October! She was 48 when she bought the car. I love details like that! It’s somewhat rough rust-wise but still looks pretty good for it’s age!

    I could see this being a bit feminine when it was new. With the pale color and lack of performance options. Still a great time capsule. Late production steering wheel for a 69.

    I bet Gertrude was quite the gal! I love that little addition to the story.

    What a fun Fire-bird this could be if, the price doesn’t get too crazy. I would give her a good cleaning and touch up some of the rust issues but, keep as is for the most part, perhaps swap in a 4 speed and enjoy!

    The firebird always seemed classier to me than the Carmaro!! This one is at 8K now and quickly getting out of my price range!! It’s to bad cause I’d love to own this one!! I think I’d swap the three speed for a Tremec 5 speed!!

    A dash(modified slightly) here that i would also have preferred installed in ’69 camaros.
    5.1 inches longer than a ’69 camaro – lot of empty space in front of radiator support here.
