1969 Firebird RAIV Convertible 4-speed
Warwick Blue, Black top, White Custom interior
This rare Firebird is currently being restored by Dave Armstrong of PMD Restorations. Dave owns a couple of show winning
1969 Firebirds (400 Coupe, Ram Air convertible) that have won top honors at Pontiac national shows. He is more than qualified
to perform this restoration, and his attention to detail is outstanding. With the help of Custom Cars in La Grange IL, who are
responsible for the body and paint work, we'll follow the progress of this beautiful 1969 Bird over the next few months.

Custom Cars in La Grange does some phenomenal restorations and has worked on some incredibly rare cars. The 1968 Shelby Mustang ragtop is 1 of 6 built,
and yes, that's a Ferrari GTO that Jerry (shop manager) was kind enough to show us.  
The Firebird gets a coat of primer.
Incredibly detailed subframe is coming together. Notice this is a manual steering car, and the original owner ordered it with drum brakes.
