Here’s an “interesting” 1969 Pontiac Firebird For sale…

1967 Pontiac Firebird

Ok, let’s discuss the 800-pound gorilla in the room – the psychedelic paint job, straight from 1979!

If you’re interested in this 1969 Pontiac Firebird, you can see it HERE. 

What you’re looking at is a pretty solid 1969 Pontiac Firebird for sale on eBay that happens to have a really, really bad paint job. I think the great news here is that this ugly paint is on a pretty solid, numbers-matching 1969 Pontiac Firebird for sale in Akron, Ohio.

And, given the prices for Pontiac Firebirds in general, the asking price on this car seems almost reasonable!

But, you would have to deal with that paint job!

It’s a Solid 1969 Pontiac Firebird

1969 Pontiac Firebird underside

The seller states that the car is pretty solid underneath – and the photos prove it. Floor pans, frame rails, and rocker panels all look pretty good, especially considering the car is in Akron Ohio – the dead middle of the Rust Belt! However, the seller does state that the car does need “some bodywork” to be perfect – not sure what that bodywork is at this point.

A stock 1969 Firebird hood with tachometer cut-outs is included with the car.

Original Drivetrain – 350 HO + 4-Speed

The seller states that the drivetrain is original – “(a) RARE factory 350 High Output H\O with Hurst manual 4-speed transmission”. That’s a pretty nice combination!

The car is not in running condition, although it did run and drive two years ago. The original “48” heads have been machined and are ready to be installed. I assume that the heads now on the Firebird are non-original to the car, but the seller has not explicitly stated this.

Looks to be a no-power steering, manual brakes car. Aftermarket power steering kits and brake boosters are fairly inexpensive and relatively easy to install.

1969 Pontiac Firebird Engine

The seller states that the carburetor is not hooked up, and the car comes with another 350 HO block.

Nice, Stock Interior

The seller also says that the interior is stock, and is in nice shape. From the pictures provided, this looks to be the case.

First-generation Pontiac Firebirds in good shape like this one (minus the atrocious paint job) can be a nice daily driver (with the power steering and power brake add-ons) and this one looks to be a decent buy.

Always, always inspect the car in person BEFORE you buy it!
