Did the Firebirds have the battery box located by the firewall?

I have looked at many images of a 69 firebird engine compartment, and haven't seen one with it mounted on the firewall. I can't see why it would be engineered differently. Looking at the pic though i don't see a heater box there either?

that dash area doesn't look quite right, maybe modified? Pretty interesting to see someone move the battery tray to the firewall. I have seen it relocated to the trunk, but first time seeing someone relocate to the firewall.

Unfortunately the previous owner replaced the original dash by 68 Camaro dash from the junk yard.

Interesting...Looks more like a 67 Camaro/Firebird dash panel. Needs some forensic work done to determine what year it is. TT indicates a very early built 69 and if it is, what happened to the original dash panel? Do we have a mystery on our hands? I'm intrigued.

The switches correspond more to a 69 firebird dash, but the 4 hole assembly in the middle doesn't ... is that for gauges, or AC?

The 4 holes assembly in the middle are fabricated locally for gauges.

Fahad, could you take some more close up or detailed pictures of the dash and the VIN (serial) number?

Unfortunately the VIN (serial) number is removed with the original dash, but I got it from the vehicle registration paper.

That being the case, remove the cowl panel (panel between windshield and hood) and there should be a hidden Partial VIN almost in the top center of the cowl. Give us a full report.

firebird, and then quarters and tail panel swapped out? Possibly, or someone swapped out the dash.

Hey Fahad how about a pic of the Vin stamp on the top of the cowl? or about where your battery tray is on the firewall?
