MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to offer this 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with low actual miles as stated on the title and a fourspeed manual transmission and original build sheet.
This car left the Van Nuys, California assembly plant on the second week of April 1979 with the following equipment: shaker hood, Muncie M21 fourspeed closeratio manual transmission, 3.08 gearing and Positraction, power steering, power fourwheel disc brakes, airconditioning, 4.9L V8 engine, gold graphics package, gold aluminum "Snowflake" wheels, front and rear wheel spoilers, tinted glass, bucket front seats, Formula steering wheel, center console, fog lights, blackedout taillights and power antenna.
Only 1,590 Firebird Trans Ams were built with this engine and transmission combination in 1979 and we were able to verify this car came with the factory 4.9 liter V8. At some later point, someone applied the 6.6 TA graphics shown on the hood scoop.
Dressed in newer Heritage Brown paint, it shows very well, however there are a few minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. Complementing the paint are the socalled "screaming chicken" hood and Bpillar graphics, stripes and the gold "snowflake" wheels. The glass is in good shape overall but the windshield has a chip on the driver's side, lower left. The side and rear windows carry aftermarket tint. The car's urethane bumpers are in fine condition and the car rolls on BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, size 225/70R15 front and rear, surrounding those aforementioned "Snowflakes." The wheels are in decent shape but have some patina. The body panels are straight and the engine bay looks decent overall. Battery appears new.
Inside, the original Camelcolored seats with a honeycomblike pattern are in good shape. The horn is inoperative but the matching carpet, the headliner, instrument panel, Formula steering wheel, door panels, package shelf, mirrors, center console and shift lever are all in good shape. Completing the interior is a Alpine AM/FM stereo with cassette.
The Firebird front end was restyled in 1979. It also marked the 10th Anniversary of the Trans Am. In 1979, Pontiac sold 116,535 Trans Ams, the highest sold in a year. Up until the 1979 models, the performance of 400equipped Firebirds could still be brought up to near pre1970 levels by removing the catalytic converter and opening up the block off plate to make the hood scoop functional.
