Produced between 1967 and 2002 through four generations, the Pontiac Firebird is a classic muscle machine nameplate, providing eye-catching good looks and plenty of poke to go with it. Now, one digital artist has rendered this slick 1969 Firebird with heaps of cool custom touches.
Coming to us from Instagram user @adry53 customs, this 1969 Pontiac Firebird keeps the classic muscle car styling, while upgrading for a nice modernized finish. For example, the front end keeps the familiar fascia design, with quad headlamps bracketing a pair of squared-off intakes, plus double intakes along the long hood line. However, to this we see new details like a painted grille surround and LED lighting signatures inside the headlamps. There’s also a set of hood pins to keep the hood secure, as well as a raised cowl induction hood section, with flat black paint added in three stripes to offset the bright red paint.
The profile shows off the Pontiac Firebird rendering’s lowered stance, as well as a set of beefy mag wheels. Speaking of beef, the mags are wrapped in a meaty set of drag comp tires, giving the profile view a particularly aggressive look. And of course, we can’t help but notice the sizable side-exit exhaust pipes sticking out ahead of the rear tires.
In back, a GT-style wing was added to the trunk, complementing the Pontiac Firebird’s sizable tire specs.
As for the engine spec, the artist even rendered a 454 Big Block V8 under the hood, with carbon fiber panels revealed inside the engine bay. The artist rendered the interior as well, where we find carbon fiber applied to the dash, door panels, steering column, and center console. Interestingly, the interior also includes what appears to be wood paneling for the center console and dash inlays, making for an interesting new / old combo.
