This Authentic 1969 Firebird 400 has had an outstanding professional restoration, finished in the Highly Desirable special order Carousel Red. It is PHS Documented and has 2 broadcast sheets confirming its special order color and WZ 400 / 330HP engine with the M20 4-speed manual transmission.
This is not your typical restored Firebird. This Striking car shows much attention to authenticity and detail, including an extremely straight body with show-quality paint that has been highly polished for a gorgeous finish. Many NOS parts were used in the restoration and the body panels, gaps, door jambs, light lenses and chrome trim are all excellent.
The engine compartment includes factory finishes, markings, tags and inspection marks. The well sorted drivetrain is totally rebuilt and will set you back in the seat. The nice deep throaty sound of the 400 through the headers and Flowmaster exhaust is music to the ears!
