Some people wanted to play Smokey and the Bandit when buying a black Pontiac in the late 1970s. But this is your chance to own something more than the movie star car in this 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with four-speed manual transmission and WS6 package as per the included build sheet.

We could continue to make movie references about a black Trans Am with gold trim, but the simple fact is that these were so cool looking that they were destined to be legendary even without Hollywood. Never designed to be a subtle machine, the deep Starlight Black is the perfect outlaw color, especially with the recent respray on this example. The chin spoiler and Endura front bumper doesn't show any evidence of run-ins with steep driveways or parking curbs, making this a car that can hold its head high at car shows. But what really makes this one really grab attention is all the gold trim that is on everything from under the rear spoiler to the iconic snowflake wheels. Of course, no one can escape the bold and iconic "hood bird" front and center.

Inside is a selection of the perfect features. The black vinyl buckets are high-backed and well bolstered for an exceptionally nice feeling. Other comfort options include the power windows, power locks, cruise control, and a tilt/telescoping three-spoke steering wheel. The driver gets to face the cool machined aluminum dash, and everyone gets an upgrade with the AM/FM/CD radio that utilizes modern stereo speakers for superior sound. One feature that's seen on a lot of these, but is thankfully missing on this one, is the popular automatic transmission option. That's right...even the Bandit didn't get the kind of powerband control that you have in this four-speed manual coupe.

With 400 cubic-inched under the hood, you'll find very few people willing to call the big V8's block color "baby" blue. This has been dressed up for both show and performance with the chrome valve covers, chrome alternator, and a heavy breathing four-barrel carburetor living under that hood scoop. The full force of this sounds amazing as it leaves the dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. What really makes this one special is the WS6 handling package. It includes a larger sway bar, tighter steering box ratio, and four-wheel disc brakes. This option made the Trans Am the favorite of most automotive magazines back in the day. Today this one still can compete thanks to modern Cooper Cobra Radial GT rubber.

Documented with the original factory buildsheet, this car could be called a smart investment the way prices are on the move. But there aren't many investments that are this much fun to drive. Call today!
