Many changes were made to the ’69 Firebird over the last year, even though GM was planning a full restyle in 1970 for the Camaro and Firebird.
The risk paid off however, because both cars were still selling relatively well.
The most notable change was the front of the car where the headlights were now separated from the grill, and the use of a new bumper. The broader fenders and wider look gave the car a more muscular look.
The biggest news was the introduction of the performance and appearance package; the Trans Am. They weren’t more powerful than the standard Firebirds, but they did have beefed up suspension and tires enabling a better handling car than the Firebirds. The car featured a special hood scoop, deck spoiler, and fender vents.
