Take some time looking over this 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, because it's the right mix of preservation and proper restoration investments. After all, you have the numbers-matching V8 and classic T-tops look. But they also made sure to make this an all-around fun classic by spending money on a proper respray, cold A/C interior, and more.

The paint is a true standout... and the same reason why this coupe caught your eye is also why others will gravitate towards it, too. It's the kind of blue that was often seen on some of the earlier models, and it really looks great on the final update to the second-generation body. We love how the professional respray of the Nocturne Blue has a nice hint of metallic to it. It really helps highlight the angular elements that came on these '79s, like the pointed Endura front end, wide body kit, fender side ducts, and the full-length rear spoiler. And the way the whole package lines up nicely tells you there has been attention paid to the body. The tri-color Trans Am script and iconic hood bird are done in lighter blues and sliver to give this a winter-like coolness to the whole presentation. And that ice-cold steeliness extends to Pontiac's "snowflake" alloys done in a coordinating silver.

Inside, the sea of blue continues on this well-presented and factory-correct color package. The velour seating looks nice, and it's handy on the days when T-tops are out and you're enjoying the sunshine inside. Plus, there are more great factory features, like power windows, an armrest center console, and cruise control. And you have worthwhile upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. Pontiac's distinct sports steering wheel has a cool blue wrapping, and it tilts to the ideal comfort position. Beyond that is the hallmark machine-turned dash with full gauge package, including large speedo and tach.

The 403 cubic-inch, four-barrel V8 is the numbers-matching powerplant. It lives in a correct-style engine bay that has the blue block radiating from within the deep black components. But what everyone will really take notice of is the ultra-cool shaker-style air topper (although this still correctly inhales through the front.) It's also worth taking note on the well-maintained fundamentals, like the belts, hoses, and new battery. The big torque of the big V8 moves the sporty coupe easily, but there's more to this car's story. The Trans Am has a reputation for being a well-done all-around sports car. This is from features like the front disc brakes and sway bars front & rear. Plus, this one has long-haul comfort thanks to the power steering and numbers-matching TH350 three-speed automatic transmission.

The sale comes with plenty of desirable extras, including the owner's manual, T-top storage bags, and a car cover. This distinct T/A stands out even further for the level of preservation and restoration it has been given. That makes an exceptional value at this price. So don't miss your chance, call today!
