This 1969 Trans Am is a true one-of-a-kind because it has a matching-numbers 400 Ram Air V8

As the SCCAs Trans-American Championship racing series entered its “golden era,” automakers and drivers went to extremes to win. Pontiac was the same as the rest. Even though Pontiac went to great lengths to produce a new engine that met the SCCA’s 5.0-litre or less guideline so that it could be used in a Firebird bearing the series’ name, the company’s efforts were ultimately fruitless. Pontiac, however, struck gold when they introduced the Trans Am, an American icon for fans who wanted a Firebird with more power, better handling, and undeniable style.

Only 689 Trans Ams and 520 Ram Air IIIs were produced, despite the name being the catalyst for the Pontiac Firebird’s eventual cult following. Over the past half-century, the remaining 689 iconic blue and white coupes have become increasingly difficult to find, especially the few that are still original and have all-matching numbers and the Ram Air III.

Excellent care has been taken to maintain this vehicle, and it has been repainted in its original Cameo White with blue accents and a blue rear panel. The interior looks original rather than remodeled, and the original radio still functions to transport you to another era. All original parts, including the engine and transmission, are still in place under this Pontiac’s dual Ram Air hood. Having only 64,698 original miles and a WQ code of 400, this 1969 Trans Am is in a league of its own.
