Sellers original description:
1969 Pontiac Firebird.
Sometimes, and probably more often than you'd like to admit, it's cool to just cruise around in an old car. Not every trip out needs to be at 7000 rpm, and not every visit to your local car show requires 500 horsepower. Case in point: This rotisserie restored, beautiful 1969 Firebird 350HO convertible has plenty of power, is very happy to sit in traffic, looks amazing and drives great!
Sure, the 400 cars garner more attention, but the 350HO is rarer, with only 2670 built with an automatic, and that number includes both hardtop and convertible bodies, where the hardtops outnumbered the convertibles 7:1. There's a four barrel carb, dual exhaust, and more compression than the standard 350 2bbl engine installed in more than 45,000 Firebirds. It's every bit the equal to a Camaro SS in the horsepower department, and much better equipped than most.
