Built 455 V8 Holley Sniper FUEL Injection 4 Speed 4 WHL DISC Custom INTERIOR
Take a moment to understand how this 1969 Pontiac Firebird gets it all right. The exterior is a shining presentation of an iconic color. The custom leather interior continues the color coordination while also offering modern comforts. And under the hood is the largest displacement Pontiac motor that’s got plenty of go-fast goodies, including fuel-injection. Add in four-on-the-floor, four-wheel disc brakes, upgraded suspension, and more, and you can easily see how this is the muscle car that fulfils the whole wish list.
Let’s start with what immediately grabs your attention, the paint. Real Pontiac fans know this is Carousel Red. It’s a genuine ’69 Pontiac color, but you can also instantly tell this is a modern and professional application. The deep shine combines with the crisp body lines to deliver a car that radiates quality. And speaking or radiates, the Oxford White was painted on for racing stripes and the rear panel to really make sure this one has a bright and powerful look. Plus, the brightwork looks amazing in places like the beak-like front bumper, headlight bezels, and the stylish rear bumper. The package is finished off with plenty of aggressive upgrades, like the triple scoop hood, extra-large exhaust tips, and 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.
Inside is another place where the custom look of the restoration is absolutely evident. It’s hard not to be impressed with how the bold exterior paint was custom applied to the seats, door panels, dash, and center console. And yes, this is done in a supple leather! It’s intertwined with a tasteful black for a thoughtful total appearance. This custom coupe was built with comfort in mind, and so you get power windows, power steering, an armrest and cup holder in the console, R134a air conditioning (will need servicing), and a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with a USB input and Bluetooth. This was also built as a proper performance machine. That’s why you have the upgraded sports steering wheel on a Flaming River tilt column, AutoMeter Ultra-Lite II gauges, and a Hurst shifter. And the touchscreen controller mounted on the dash is another clear indicator of something special under the hood.
The sleek and dark inner walls of the engine bay instantly funnel your attention to the shining beast in the middle. There’s a show-ready tidiness and luster to this 455 cubic-inch V8, but what you’ll really love is how this looker was built to be a predator. This massive Pontiac motor has been enhanced and fortified with a Comp Cams camshaft, Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, and Hooker headers. And the Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection system lets you dial in your ideal performance right from the comfort of the interior. This mega motor is supported by the right pieces, including upgraded pulleys on a serpentine belt system, an MSD 6AL ignition, and a large aluminum radiator w/electric fans. You are in firm control of this full power package with a Borg Warner Super T10 four-speed manual transmission that feeds the 12-bolt rear end. The suspension has been updated by BMR Suspension, and it also includes newer polyurethane bushings and a rear sway bar. You even have four-wheel disc brakes and the grip of modern ZR-rated tires.
