69 Firebird Trans Am Clone No Reserve Camaro Chevelle 68 70 67 on 2040-cars
Hudsonville, Michigan, United States
you are bidding on my 69 trans am clone. there is a ton to cover with this car so i'll try to get it all.
first thing first I am possibly crazy but im selling at no reserve.
I am however willing to accept offers as i do have the car for sale locally and I do reserve the right to end the auction at any given time.
I have pictured what the car looked like when i first bought it all the way to current.
heres the scoop on the car front to back and top to bottom.
This car was a 400 car originally.
Exterior: New paint, front and rear bumper, emblems, side marker lights and bezels, lights, door handles, mirrors, drip rail moldings, windsheild, back glass, tires, center caps, lug nuts.
Engine & Transmission: The engine is a 1970 YD code 400 built by butler performance a few years ago and has around 3,000 miles on it currently. edelbrock performer intake and carb (750 cfm) hooker super comp ceramic coated headers, thrush h-pipe exhaust system. turbo 400 transmission wich is the original to the car. new motor mounts, transmission mount and power steering lines . hei distributor.
this car has the biggest cam you can buy for a pontiac motor thus robbing vaccuum to the power brake booster.
the starter really needs a heat sheild to protect it from the head of the headers. new belts and hoses. aluminum 3 row radiator to help keep it cool. also has a 160 degree thermostat.
Rear end: is a 10 bolt safe-t-track posi rear end with a 3.55 gear ratio. correct rear end for a 69 trans am.
Brakes: new rotors, calipers, hoses, steel lines, proportioning valve, dust sheilds, booster, master cylinder rear hose, shoes and drums. the steel lines are in the front only from the matster cylinder down. the main line to the rear is the original.
New gas tank and sending unit.
New: door & trunk weather stripping, seat backs (not installed) rear seat upholstery (not installed) ball joints, control arm bushings, front shocks, sway bar end links, front bearings, rag joint for the steering column, the rear shocks and leaf springs are original multi leaf springs.
the car once had a camaro quarter put on the drivers side. that was replaced with a correct firebird quarter before paint. the hood is a steel hood and not a fiberglass hood.
the interior is original and should be redone. otherwise decent passable driver quality. the floor boards have small holes in them which the previous owner patched over them rather than doing the work correctly. I have one full length floor pan for the passenger side but never bought the drivers side. I figured i would have them corrected when i had the interior redone. the dash lights and the gas gauge randomly stopped working a couple weeks ago. Havent had it looked at and not sure why so that should be addressed.
this car is not a 100 point concourse frame off restoration but sure does present its self very well. the paint quality is about an 8 out of 10 and could really look super show with a little more wet sanding and buffing to really make it look glass.
the car also has brand new front subframe bushings and bolts.
anymore questions please do not hesitate. I wish i could keep the car but I am selling all of my projects as I just dont have the time to play with them anymore due to family size and sporting obligations. I get thumbs up no matter where i go and this car is guaranteed to draw attention in any crowd or car show. after all how many 69 trans am's do you see at car shows? EXACTLY!!! be the only one there every single time!

At fourteen years of age, Kathryn DiMaria has already done what many self-proclaimed gearheads won't even attempt in their lifetimes. The Dearborn, Michigan teen is rebuilding a car from the ground up.
The intrepid youngster asked her parents when she was just twelve to start a Pontiac Fiero project, even offering to pony up all the funds herself. Father, Jerry DiMaria only expected the project to last a few months, but two years later, Kathryn is still at it. In this CNN video, the two are at Maker Faire (a DIY festival) rebuilding a 3.4-liter V6 engine out of a Chevrolet Camaro to replace the 2.8-liter mill found in the Fiero.
The whole family hast pitched in, with Kathryn's mother teaching her how to sew in order to complete the interior, father Jerry providing much of the technical know-how, and even her sister is chronicling Kathryn's progress through photos. Jerry even started a thread in a Fiero forum which has been live for two years and is now 22 pages long. Of the project, one forum member wrote, "welcome to the madness."
DeLorean Motor Company Pontiac Solstice renderings - Click above for high-res image gallery
General Motors has made a science out of sharing platforms. So when the company's Kappa platform was introduced for a new rear-drive roadster to be distributed across three different motor divisions, you'd have figured the program was pretty safe, right? Unfortunately for the workers at the Wilmington Assembly Plant which manufactured the Kappa roadsters, those three divisions were Pontiac, Saturn and Opel - three units which the General has either sold or shut down. Which is a shame, because a perfectly good rear-drive roadster platform is a heck of a thing to waste.
In one of the strangest rumors we've heard recently, however, our compatriots over at Jalopnik report that the DeLorean Motor Company (yes, that DeLorean Motor Company) is considering buying the plant and the platform from GM and putting it back into production as a new DMC.
General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.
