Description

RARE, 1 of 1,817 WITH PONTIAC 400 V8 & 4 SPEED, T TOPS, WS6 PACKAGE, COLLECTOR!

Not only is this a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 10th Anniversary Edition, but also this special edition car is one of the rare and desirable example with a four-on-the-floor, and it has upgraded V8 power. So have a nice look at a T-top favorite that as made for driving.

Platinum Silver is a special color for these anniversary cars, and so it's nice to see that this one has been given a good investment later life to make sure this distinct coupe keeps its deep luster. More than just the silver, the full paint package is one of the most thoughtful that ever came from the factory. The full wingspan of the hood bird is larger on these cars. It helps to establish an artful dividing line and pinstriping package. It includes a darker silver accent color that runs from the shaker hood, around the doors, and ends at the pinstripe behind the T-tops. In fact, the full red and black pinstripe, was applied just about everywhere it could go, including the bumpers, wide wheel well flares, fender vents, and full-width rear spoiler that make this generation T/A look like it owns the road. Pontiac fans know that no true 10th anniversary model is complete without the Turbo alloy wheels. These were their debut and exclusive to the limited run of 7,500 10th anniversary cars in 1979. And that numbers gets narrowed even further to a rarer 1,817 when looking at a factory four-speed example like this one.

Silver leather upholstery is another one truly impressive features that the factory will likely never try to repeat today, and so it's great to see this interior looking so clean and complete. Even the door panels with pinstripe-like accenting are looking quite nice. So this is the kind of car you take out the T-tops and showcase at the car shows (even the correct T-top storage bags come with the sale.) There are factory features like the armrest center console, power steering, and Delco AM/FM radio. And there are also provisions for power windows, power locks, and R134a air conditioning (all will likely need servicing to be fully functional again.) What you'll really love is how this is built to be a driver's car. Your right hand gravitates toward the shifter. Your left one loves the leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, and it's mounted on a tilt column so you get a good view of the full gauges in the sporty machine-turned panel.

Pontiac's 400 cubic-inch V8 is a true legend, and the shaker hood on display just make it even more impressive. And this one has added substance, too. The motor was a replacement later in life. It now inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added power and authority as Doug's Headers feed the stainless dual exhaust. The four-speed manual transmission gives you true control over this enhanced V8. And control is a central theme to this Trans Am, because it was born a desirable WS6 car. This includes features like sway bars front & rear and four-wheel disc brakes that made these T/As one of the best handling muscle machines of it day. Plus, you have wide BF Goodrich T/A tires with an excellent tread.

Complete with owner's manual, this is the rare 10th Anniversary T/A made even rarer by the features you really want. So don't miss this deal, call today!
