I apologize to those who bid on this car the first 2 times. I had a baby who threw a fit and blew up those auctions because he wanted the reserve and I didn't give him my phone number soon enough. Guess his money is better than everyone else's. Anyway! Up for auction is a real 1969 Firebird Trans Am documented by the original (not a copy) window sticker and PHS documents. I won't bore you with all the history behind the 69 Trans Am. If your looking you already know all that. This is a very very late production 1969 Trans Am and one of a hand full of them that has it's original window sticker. As quoted in Rocky Rotella's new 1967-69 Firebird book. I have personally restored the entire drive train which is almost completely original with exception of the block and carburetor. The engine has been bored .030 with forged pistons,balanced,blueprinted etc,etc. Transmission has had every bearing,seal,gasket and bushing replaced. Rear end same thing. I think you get the idea. This is a body mans dream because all the mechanics and wiring has been redone. Almost everything that needed powdercoating has been done. I have the original hood and upper plate. This car needs the body work done and comes with nearly every piece needed NOS. Just to list a few they are NOS front fenders,rear quarters,tail panel,rocker moldings,etc,etc. I have all new wiring harnesses except dash and intermediate body harness but those used harnesses are in great shape. I have had all the stainless polished by a professional not just buffed out. They are still in the wrappers and I think it cost me about 900.00 just for that. All the brake and fuel lines have been replaced with stainless steel as well as the park brake cables. All the brakes have been restored as well. Springs,pads,shoes calipers,etc,etc. Doors are in great shape. Trunk lid was replaced with a very nice rust free one. Front inner fenders are very nice rust free. You can see in the pictures the floors and trunk are very nice and solid. I still have all the original floor insulation which can be used again. All the glass is original except thewindshield. I have all the interior which is in really pretty good shape. I think most all of it can be reused except the carpet,headliner,dash pad and package tray. Radio is not cut out on the dash bezel. I have (4) 14x7 Rally II wheels already painted and an NOS service replacement space saver spare. I will be putting together a list of additional NOS parts that go with the car and posting that later. As you can see the car was painted black. I have talked to one of the previous owner's who told me he got so many tickets because the police knew the car too well so he went home and painted it with a paint brush. He said he never got another ticket. Lol. This is a very solid car to finish. The only things it needs are rear quarters,outer rear wheelhousings,tail panel and inner tail panel. Most of which is included NOS. I also have nice parking lights and park light housings for the front valance. There are loads of parts I have probably forgot to mention but will add things as I remember.I do not want to waste your time or mine and don't want to be rude but just because it is for sale does not mean I need to sell this car. My reserve is very very fair considering how much work has been done and how these cars are skyrocketing. I would finish it but my body man says he is only doing one more car and I have the original Jolly Olly Orange race car from Schoon Motors which Iam going to do. I don't want to go through the looking for a body man thing so my loss your gain. The amount of parts included with this car NOS,very nice used and original is massive. This basically is just a big model that needs to be assembled. I would rather sell it to someone outright and really do not want trades but if you have a very low mile 80 Indy Pace car or 79 Silver Anniversary 4spd we may be able to work out a partial trade towards my 1969 TA. Buyer to pay all shipping fees. A 500.00 PayPal deposit will be required immediately after the auction. Full payment by cashiers check, wire transfer or cash in person within 7 days. This car goes nowhere till then. Thanks. On Nov-03-17 at 10:54:58 PDT, seller added the following information:
I have had some questions about the block. It is not original. I purchased it about 10 years ago when I bought the car. I got it out of a machine shop who told me a guy dropped it off and never came back to get it. It is dated E289 with casting number 9790071. The code is WQ and has no VIN stamped. It is either a very good restamp or over the counter block. Either way it is NOT original. The heads are 48 castings and are both dated E289. The distributor is a 1111970 and dated 9E16. The carburetor is a NOS 7040268 but I do have a nice used SR 7029270 that I can swap if buyer wants that instead. The rear end casting number is 9799724 with a casting date of 211. Rear end is a N housing with ZH stamp and 231 stamped date. Transmission is the original with VIN stamped it it. Thanks. On Nov-04-17 at 12:58:15 PDT, seller added the following information:
Here are a few more bits of info on the car. Included in the auction is a LH NOS grille and the RH is good used. I have all the mini brackets and brackets for the front end and if you know these cars you know there are a few. I completely disassembled the original remote mirror sent it in to a nationally known company and had it rechromed. I put it all back together and it is in a box ready to install. I have the original radio,knobs and speaker with bracket. Operating condition unknown but look good. All the original belts are here in good shape and in a box. Original console is there but top plate cut so will need repair. Cowl panel is there in great shape along with the washer nozzles. Secret VIN stamps are both there. The unique lower valance baffle plate is included but dented up so will need repair. The rear leaf springs are not the typical repo cheapos. These were specially made by Eaton spring from original specs. Some of the things I do not have are the windshield,sway bar,radiator and the hood scoop tunnels. Also the NOS LH rear quarter has some rust at the bottom behind the wheel from improper storage before I purchased it. Not terrible just wanted to mention it. I sent the shifter in to Hurst and had it completely rebuilt. I could go on but any question please email. Thanks.On Nov-04-17 at 13:08:36 PDT, seller added the following information:
