When you consider your new Pontiac, you'll see and feel the hundreds of other safety, convenience and performance features that make 1969 the best year yet to break away.

The Judge. From Pontiac.
A new name. With a special brand of justice to discourage the so-called performance-minded competition.
Like a standard, 366-horse, 400-cubic-inch V-8 with Ram Air and a 4-barrel. Or a 370-horse, 400-cube Ram Air IV V-8, if you so order. Either way, those hood scoops function.
Like a fully synchronized, floor-mounted, 3-speed cogbox. A close-ratio 4-speed with Hurst shifter (yea!) and a 3-speed Turbo Hydra-matic (boo!) are also in the hopper, if you'd care to order same.
Like a 60° air foil, blackened grille, exposed headlamps, fiber-glass belted tires (big and black), steel mag-type wheels, blue-red-yellow striping and Judge I.D. inside and out. Like an Endura schnoz that regards chips, dings and scrapes as acts of treason.
Like Morrokide-covered buckets. And a no-nonsense instrument panel that fills you in. In detail. Order a hood-mounted tach and power front disc brakes.
Our case rests It's justice, man.

Pontiac debuted the first generation Firebird Trans Am Coupé on March 8, the opening day of the Chicago Auto Show. The hi-performance Trans Am is Pontiac's equivalent of the Chevrolet Camaro Z28. Only 697 Trans Am were manufactured for this model year, most with a 335 horsepower Ram Air III V-8.

Cirrus

At the aircraft-style rear the taillights shine blue while cruising but turn red while braking, an idea that some thought might become standard.
