Description for Pontiac Trans Am 1979

With a rising demand for second-generation Trans Ams, it's becoming increasingly hard to find a survivor car that remains in its original and interesting color. Complete right down to the cold A/C, this 1979 Pontiac Firebird T/A even has its numbers matching V8 that's averaged only around 1,200 miles annually. So you're truly looking at the allure of proper preservation.It takes a lot of care to go nearly four decades without a respray. So we can tell you that the Nocturne Blue that grabs your attention now is the same one that the Norwood, Ohio plant applied all those yeas ago. Sure, there it may not look like a trailer queen, but nothing to get in the way of you replying, "Yeah, it's original!' when someone complements it. Beyond just the cool blue, this car is all about color coordination. The shades of gold in the hood bird decal are still quite vivid, and they match so nicely with the sweeping side trim, b-pillar logos, and Trans Am script on the full-length rear spoiler. And of course, we all see the color synchronization on the iconic "snowflake" wheels.And the tan/gold attitude doesn't just stop with the exterior. Inside the full package nicely matches with the exterior accent colors. And when the T-tops are out, this fully coordinated execution is on display for everyone to see. And if people are going to be looking into your T/A, you're glad to know that low mileage meant little seat time in the interior. That's why not only do the seats still look great, but also so does the dash, door panels, and center console. This has all the great qualities of a well preserved survivor. In fact, the only piece we can identify as new is the carpeting. The driver gets to face iconic components like the Trans Am's special three-spoke steering wheel, cool machined aluminum dash, and even the tach/clock combo in the optional Rally gauge package. The original AM/FM/cassette stereo is even in place for period-correct fun. Best of all, the factory air conditioner is still keeping everything cool no matter if you've got a buttoned-up coupe or the T-tops have you open to the world.The numbers-matching 301 cubic-inch V8 has an authentic appearance right down to the factory hood shaker that everybody remembers so well. The block is still covered in factory-correct Pontiac blue paint, and it looks like this powerplant has been treated to good regular maintenance, instead of many that were overly modified. Inhaling through a four-barrel carburetor, this motor makes such deep muscle car sounds as it exhales through the quad pipes. Plus, the Trans Am has a reputation for not only being quick, but also offering great handling with features such as power steering and front disc brakes. Add in a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission that's stout enough to handle the V8 power, but it can also settle into an easy cruising attitude exactly everything you want in an anytime driver.Complete with owner's manual and build sheet, this '79 Trans Am provides an excellent opportunity for the enthusiast that is looking for a fun survivor car to enjoy today. With the collector demand quickly on the rise for these T/As, this numbers-matching specimen will surely be a hot topic in our showroom. Call today!!!
