Q: Pageant Car
I remember a local guy here in Orlando had an orange (Carousel Red) and parchment 1969 Firebird convertible that had a note on the build sheet about it being some kind of a beauty pageant car, used in Miami or Palm Beach. There were a few of those built, and I think awarded to winners.
A: You’ve sparked my curiousity since I own a Firebird with similar history. I purchased a car from Florida about 3 years ago from the second owner . I got the original bill of sale, protecto-plate etc. It is an original carousel red/parchment convertible car (and still is – but a tad tired).
On the bottom of the build sheet (found under the back seat) is a statement:
“TAG NATIONAL COLLEGE QUEEN PAGEANT”
The car was purchased in Fort Myers by a lady who owned it for 26 years, then went up to Orlando for 3 years, then up to the Great White North of London Ontario Canada.
