'69 Firebird of George N. Farley from Ferndale, Michigan

In 1967, GM entered the pony car market with the Camaro and Firebird, which set out to redefine the genre.

A lifestyle vehicle, the Firebird was designed to appeal to younger audiences, while having enough available features to attract almost any kind of buyer.

This vehicle is an excellent example of a low production and rare true "pony car".

The last year of the first generation Pontiac pony car. Designed to offer a little more luxury that the competition but still be affordable. The base models like this were just for young drivers and with engine options it turned into a formidable muscle car.

Built in November 1968, delivered in Indiana and taken to California. The second owner then brought it to Michigan and kept it as a Sunday cruiser, never taking it out in the rain. I purchased it unrestored in 1992 with 66,000 miles. Since then its been an ongoing project with a body off restoration completed in 2012. The body parts are all original with complete white pearl interior. The original drivetrain has never been apart and performs perfectly.

The unique thing about this car is its lack or options. 350 2 bbl, powerglide transmission, manual drum brakes and manual convertible top. The definition of the pony car - "Less Is More".

Nicknamed the "Funtiac" this car has been driven as far as New York, Iowa, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Notable awards include: GM corporate award for best restored vehicle at St. Ignace, AACA National Senior and Grand National 1st Place and POCI National Gold Award.
