well you are way to vague in your question,um are we talking small block motor, automatic transmission, a basic granny special probably had a limited slip rear end installed from factory. but if you talking big block motor four speed transmission and real tall gears for freeway acceleration then you more then likely was stock from factory with a posi rear end

The easiest way that I know of to check is to raise the back of the car, leave the tranny in park. Spin one tire by hand, if the opposite tire is spinning in the same direction it is a posi, if the other tire is spinning in the opposite direction it is an open differential.

A 1969 Charger (200mph) is a faster car than a 1978 Trans Am Firebird (123mph).

No, the 5 speed wasn't ever put in any American cars back in 69, they were all 3 and 4 speeds.

The Pontiac Firebird Trans Am was made by Pontiac, which is a division of General Motors. The first (1969), second (1970-1981), and third (1982-1992) generation cars were assembled at either the Van Nuys, California or Norwood, Ohio plants while the fourth generation (1993-2002) cars were assembled at the Sainte-Thรฉrรจse plant in Quebec, Canada.

Try the driver side core support on the engine side. That's where my 68 is located. Sorry I couldn't be more specific for your year of 'Bird.

I went from the original quadrajet to a Holly and it solved that problem... Are you sure it is not the carb?

Dimensionally they are different. It wouldn't be a direct swap by any means. That's not to say it can't be done. I am putting an '80 T/A disc break rear end in a '68 Firebird. One of the biggest things you have to look for is the width of the rear end.

There are generally considered to be four generations. The first generations is from 1967-1969. The second generation is from 1970-1981. The third generation is from 1982-1992. The fourth generation is from 1993-2002.

The most popular car from 1964-1969 was the Pontiac GTO.

The man most credited with it is Pontiac engineer Herb Adams. He had been head of development team on the PFST (Pontiac Firebird Sprint Turismo) in 1967-68. The special suspension parts developed for the PFST were used on the first Trans Am in 1969. Adams was head of special projects for Pontiac until the mid 1970's and raced Firebirds (and later his own renditions the "Fire-Am" and "Silverbird") in SCCA competition for several years.

Unfortunately it will if someone is un-original enough to want the same car as everyone and their grandma has you can make a firebird into a camaro.

The Trans Am was introduced March in 1969, and was called Trans Am after the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Trans-American Challenge Cup in which Pontiac wanted to compete. Pontiac originally wanted their top-end Firebird to be called the Sebring, but as it turned out, Chrysler trademarked the name first. On a side note, General Motors paid the SCCA $5 for every Trans Am sold.

While I don't have exact figures, I'd imagine the Firebird was the quicker. It's a lighter car. It also depends on rear end gears, tranny, etc.
