More than just a T-top V8 coupe, this is 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 10th Anniversary Edition really checks all the right boxes. After all, this collector car is original where you want it (like the numbers-matching V8) and upgraded for the best experience (like the modern air conditioning.) So look over all the details, because this one is worth the extra attention.

We suspect someone has made some significant recent investments in this T/A. These anniversary cars were given a special color called Platinum Silver, and the way this radiates the sunshine today really lets you know this is a collector-grade Pontiac. And all the details continue to showcase this car's value. The hood has a special version of the ""screaming"" hood bird that's exclusive to these cars. It's wider than normal, and it helps set up the darker silver accent color that runs from the shaker hood, around the doors, and ends at the pinstripe behind the T-tops. And speaking of the pinstripe, this red and black dual line is used to outline just about every detail on this coupe. It's a total package that takes big money and good care to keep it looking this good. But then again, this is the right car to receive all the extra attention and investment. Averaging less than 775 miles annually means this one is already a low mileage standout even if this is parked next to another one of the rare 7,500 T/A 10th anniversary examples.

Inside, the silver leather interior is a standout hallmark of this special edition car. That's why we suspect more big investments to keep this unique piece looking so good. In fact, the two-tone silver presentation of the interior coordinates nicely with the exterior. You even have the black and red pinstripe and Firebird logo stitched into the doors! That's why you'll be especially happy to take out the glass T-tops and share this full uniform package with the world. And when you do, you get to feel as cool as you look thanks to R134a air conditioning. In fact, this comes loaded with all the best features, including power windows, power locks, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and cruise control. The original AM/FM stereo with 8-track is even still working. The driver gets a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, and beyond that, the dash is covered in the T/A's hallmark machine-turned aluminum panel. The original gauge pack specially glows red like an aircraft, and even the factory tach/clock combo is still in working order. So this offers that unmistakable enjoyment that comes from a complete and vintage sports car.

The 403 cubic-inch V8 is the original motor to the coupe. And while the low mileage means little time to get it dirty, you can also see a level of detail that says there was time and money spent here. You see it everything from the correct decals to the pliable rubber seal around the shaker hood element. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this V8 develops plenty of torque, and the quad-tip exhaust has plenty of bass. As you'll see from the included buildsheet, this was born a desirable WS6 car. That means a terrific handling package that was the envy of its day. It includes sway bars front & rear as well as four-wheel disc brakes. And with the cool and correct turbo-style alloy wheels now carry BF Goodrich T/A rubber, this is an all-around terrific driving package.

The sale come complete with the right paperwork, including the factory buildsheet, owner's manual packet, and Pontiac Historic Services (PHS) documentation. So you know you're looking at a cut-above rare classic. Don't miss your chance, call today!
