Released in 1967, the Pontiac Firebird offers a range of engines and options culminating in 1969 with the new variant Trans Am which will later be upgraded to a separate line of products. The high end, offered in this first year without much advertising support, is accepting custom requirements.
697 Pontiac Trans Am are manufactured in 1969. They constitute the whole of the first generation of this model that will be significantly modified in the following year. Convertibles attract very few customers, perhaps because they are more expensive. Only 8 convertibles are built. They will not have an immediate following because the second generation withdraws this option.
Two of these highly rare Trans Am convertibles will be sold by Mecum at Kissimmee FL on January 22. Both have an all-white exterior finish without the usual lateral blue stripes and their engine is a 400/335 HP which is not the most powerful in the range.
The lot F115 has a parchment interior that gives it a triple white designation, the only one of its kind with this aesthetic refinement. Its gear box is four-speed manual.
The lot F138 is offered with a blue interior. Its transmission is automatic.
I invite you to watch the video shared by Mecum to introduce the Trans Am convertible triple white.
