    A real '69 T/A is extremely rare. Probably more clones in existance than authentic ones.

    697 Trans Am's built in `69, 8 of them are convertibles.
    Just like the GTO Judge the standard engine was the 400 Ram Air III
    400 Ram Air IV was optional.

    BTW all the droptops are R/A III's, 4 with Auto's and 4 with 4spds.
