The term “uniform,” literally “one form,” is seldom used in any discussion about muscle cars, symbolizing the quintessential American concept of rugged individualism. Indeed, the amazing array of personal choices muscle car buyers happily faced in selecting models, engines, transmissions, colors and optional accessories was itself inspired by the very idea of the individual, and yet it was a well-designed “uniform” – a simple but effective livery of Cameo White with Tyrol Blue stripes and accents – that helped make the 1969 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am the legend that it is today. Thanks to that “uniform” there is no mistaking a 1969 Trans Am for any other Firebird. There are distinctions within the model of course; the Trans Am engine lineup began with the potent 400/335 HP Ram Air III V-8 and the T/A enjoyed the best handling of any muscle car of its day, including less well-equipped Firebirds. The car’s muscular styling was complemented with an upscale interior made of quality materials. One of the best examples of that marvelous first-year Trans Am is offered in this award-winning restored hardtop coupe. A numbers matching car equipped with the 400/335 HP Ram Air III engine, it is one of 520 equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission. An exceptional car by any judging standard, it was awarded a Concourse Gold Certificate by the Muscle Car and Corvette National Council in the “Class of 69” invitational event, and is offered with the original bill of sale, Protect-O-Plate, registration information from the original owner and PHS documentation.
