The high-performance Trans Am was introduced March 8, 1969.
This was the most highly refined "model option" to come from Pontiac up to this point in time.
Because of slow sales and late introductions of next-year models, 1969 Firebirds left in stock were carried over and sold through the following fall.
This first generation of the Firebird saw a total of 277,380 vehicles built.|
