Description

In the late 1970s Pontiac was one of the few domestic automakers who remembered how to make horsepower. This highly optioned 1979 Trans Am for example is powered by a 403 cubic inch V8 that makes a respectable 185 horsepower. It's also rather rare given that it isn't gold black or silver and showing up in this one means proudly letting everyone know you're a big fan of the 1970s. The color is called Nocturne Blue and it is both gorgeous and rather unusual for 1979 Trans Ams and this handsome example is in great condition throughout showing careful ownership and excellent care throughout its life. However unlike many of its siblings this one has pretty good color matching throughout proving that it's been well maintained and kept out of the sun but the soft shine suggests vintage paint. These cars were also heavy on the decals and pinstripes of course and they remain in excellent condition with very little fading and excellent adhesion. The blacked-out grilles and color-matched headlight buckets are in excellent condition and the cool Trans Am taillights are still bright and clear. The only way Trans Ams came in 1979 was loaded and that included a luxuriously appointed interior. The blue fabric seats in this car remain in good condition with wear appropriate to a car with half as many years on it-they're excellent. There are a few creases here and there on the driver's seat but the passenger's seat is amazingly well preserved and the back seat looks like new. The dash features a cool engine-turned panel that houses a full array of functional gauges as well as a later AM/FM/cassette radio that powers a set of speakers fitted to the door panels. The dash pad console door panels and even the headliner are all in very good shape. This car comes equipped with factory A/C and you'll notice that this is an authentic power window car with those round black Firebird emblems on the doors installed to hide the holes where the window cranks would ordinarily live. The Oldsmobile-built 403 cubic inch V8 makes great muscle car sounds and still moves the car with genuine authority. Sure it's a little scruffy under the hood but there are no major issues and a weekend of detailing would pay big dividends. If you're interested in driving on the other hand you'll be happy to know that it starts quickly and drives beautifully. The snorkel feeding the air cleaner (which only looks like a hood scoop but is non-functional) is in excellent condition and many of the original components are still intact. Routine maintenance items have obviously been conscientiously replaced during the last 34 years but overall this is a highly original and nicely preserved engine bay. The chassis is more of the same with signs of proper maintenance and good care in a warm dry climate. The wheels are period Keystones with gold inserts to match the decals and wear fat 245/60/15 Goodyear radials with the original snowflake alloys included with the car. If you're a smart buyer you've undoubtedly already noticed that these cars are red hot right now and this one comes with a ton of receipts and other documentation. Forget what you remember about the '70s and enjoy the reality-these are awesome cars that are simply a blast to drive. Call now! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
