Sorry to hear about your wife's father. Know all too well from family and my girlfriend's father, they aren't fun. Wish him and you all the best in that situation!

Great lookin 'bird though! One of my favorite body designs. Keep us up to date with how getting her back on the road is!

Sorry to hear about your father-in-law. Yes you have a very rare car. It's one of 669 Trans Am ever made in 1969. I suspect the 4-speed will make it even more rare.

A buddy in my car club owns a '69 Trans Am as well. His has a Ram Air IV engine with a 4-speed. That makes his a one-of-five car. His is definitely a six-figure car at that point. 

Good luck reviving your father-in-law's car. Please keep us in the loop on your progress.

One should be one on top of the gas tank, the other should be in the back seat - assuming either have held up to the test of time.

That said, you can order a complete set of documentation of your car from Pontiac Historical Services Online. For their fee and your VIN #, they provide you the build sheet, dealer invoice, and window sticker of your car, as it left the factory. It is "the" documentation source for any Pontiac.

Beautiful ride! Tough situation you are in, but maybe getting the car back on the road will be a joy to your father in law. He can still say yes or no, so he will undoubtably be happy to hear you are working on it. Keep him up to date on what’s going on.......he will be happy inside even if he cannot fully express it! Good luck and post some pics as you progress.
