Description for Pontiac Trans Am 1979

Only 24,510 original miles. From a Trans Am collector that has owned this car the last 17 years. This car was his hobby. He personally detailed and maintained this car. It participated in countless shows and has won many awards. It is one of the best I've seen. The Anniversary cars came loaded, even with options unavailable on any other Trans Ams. They were all produced the same except for drivetrain. You could get an automatic which came with the 403 Olds motor or you could get the much more desirable 4-speed that came with the higher hp Pontiac 400 motor. This one is the latter of the two.
It is loaded with documentation. There are so many options it required a 2 page window sticker! It also has 2 build sheets, original invoice, inspection sheet, manuals, literature and warranty agreement. It has been documented by Pontiac Historical Service.
EXTERIOR: The body is pristine with absolutely no signs of any rust or damage, not even a door dent. The paint is mostly original and it has a beautiful glossy finish. The bumpers and spoilers all fit really well and have no cracks or damage. The paint is practically pristine, you'd have to look really long and hard to find even a minor flaw. It has a very glossy finish. All of the striping and the bird is in excellent condition. The glass is all crystal clear but there is one stone chip in the windshield. The mirrored t-tops are excellent. The original turbo wheels are not scraped, they have the original clear coat finish, new center caps. The BF Goodrich tires look new. The door jambs are spotless. Sill plates are shiny, the paint is shiny, the weather strips are excellent.
INTERIOR: 10th anniversary cars came with a very high end interior. It was the only Trans Am you could get actual leather upholstery and plush carpets in. It also has unique embroidery and red lit gauges. The dash area is mint. The machine turned panel is shiny, rally gauges work including quartz clock. It has original digital stereo with 8 track player. The leather formula wheel is on a tilt column. Overhead the headliner, visors, trim and mirror are mint. The dome light also has map lights, they work. All the trim, console, speaker shelf are excellent. No extra cut speaker holes, no damage, no cigarette burns. Actually the lighter and ashtray don't look like they have ever been used. The original leather still looks real good. The original light color carpet has some minor discoloring like they all do.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has the more desirable 400 higher horsepower Pontiac motor. It is detailed like brand new factory condition. The entire shaker hood scoop assembly is complete. All the ductwork, decals, hoses and rubber seal look brand new. Every component finish looks like new. The air conditioning is updated with R134 freon. The fan shroud and overflow bottle are pristine. The brake booster is cadmium plated, the alternator looks new. Really, this motor compartment is spotless. He took a lot of pride in keeping this motor detailed and serviced.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has a power trunk release. Inside the trunk is all original and looks like new. The original collapsible spare tire with the air bottle is still secured in place. The original jack is still stowed up under the deck and it looks like it's never been out. The insulated trunk trunk mat and under the mat is pristine. It also includes not one, but two car covers and it has the Fisher t-top bags. The paint on the jamb and under the trunk lid is glossy, the decals and weather strip still look like new.
UNDERSIDE: Very clean, proper and tidy. Correct exhaust system with catalytic converter and chrome splitter tips. Bottom of the motor is ckean, fuel pump looks new. The 4-speed is vin number matched to this car. It has original limited slip rear end. The front and rear suspension is cleaned up nicely. There is no rust or damage. It has 4 wheel disc brakes, e-brake is hooked up.
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
