    1969 Resto Mod Firebird LS3-T56

    1969 Firebird Pro-touring LS3 6-speed - $68,000 - Farmington, NM
    As much as I love my car, things change in life and I must sell it. 1969 Firebird with ground up restoration no expense spared on upgrades. Car has the old school body but new car handling. Drives like it is on rails. I have driven it in cross country rally since completion and it did not disappoint in performance. I have hundreds of build pictures and documented much of the process. The ’69 Firebird was already a unique car and this one stands out from all the rest. I have listed the major upgrades and there are many others I am sure I have forgotten. Upgraded to an LS3 from LS2 after rally. LS3 has less than 500 miles. Recent dynotune with 488 rwhp and 465 ft-lbs. The interior is not completed behind front seats, has sub box in place of back seat and needs close out panels made, or I could remove box and make some simple panels.

    Wow, what an amazing car! I have also have a 69 FB and love the look of the painted to match from bumper. I think it makes the car look like a baby 70 GTO. Good luck with the sale.
