SUPER CLEAN W/ MATCHING NUMBERS 400 V8, 4 SPD MAN, A/C, RECENTLY RESTORED, WOW!

Perhaps you've seen the way prices are skyrocketing on these Anniversary Trans Ams, but it's the investment-grade specimens that are truly bringing top dollar. This incredible 1979 Trans Am has the right pedigree: matching-numbers, a faithful and comprehensive restoration, great options, and lots of great documentation. There's still time to get in on the rapidly ascending roller coaster and ride it to the moon, and this is the perfect T/A to do it in.

Is it possible for a car to be almost too nice? Thanks to a comprehensive freshening that included new paint and interior, this Trans Am is dialed-in from head-to-toe. And thanks to careful ownership through the years that helped ensure that the sheetmetal was unmolested and ultra-straight, the refinishing was relatively easy (in a manner of speaking, restoring a classic is never 'easy'), but they were careful not to over-restore the car, which is a big no-no with purists and the cars they love. This is especially true with cars of the '70s and the evolving paint technology, but things like the urethane bumpers and deck lid spoiler match beautifully, something the factory rarely achieved. The recent finish is smooth to the touch and very ... Please ask for the full description.

SUPER CLEAN W/ MATCHING NUMBERS 400 V8, 4 SPD MAN, A/C, RECENTLY RESTORED, WOW!

Perhaps you've seen the way prices are skyrocketing on these Anniversary Trans Ams, but it's the investment-grade specimens that are truly bringing top dollar. This incredible 1979 Trans Am has the right pedigree: matching-numbers, a faithful and comprehensive restoration, great options, and lots of great documentation. There's still time to get in on the rapidly ascending roller coaster and ride it to the moon, and this is the perfect T/A to do it in.

Is it possible for a car to be almost too nice? Thanks to a comprehensive freshening that included new paint and interior, this Trans Am is dialed-in from head-to-toe. And thanks to careful ownership through the years that helped ensure that the sheetmetal was unmolested and ultra-straight, the refinishing was relatively easy (in a manner of speaking, restoring a classic is never 'easy'), but they were careful not to over-restore the car, which is a big no-no with purists and the cars they love. This is especially true with cars of the '70s and the evolving paint technology, but things like the urethane bumpers and deck lid spoiler match beautifully, something the factory rarely achieved. The recent finish is smooth to the touch and very slick, with a shine that really looks great when you're looking down the laser-straight lines of the body. The decals are all exact reproductions that were expertly installed, wrapping around the nose cone, rear decklid, and, of course, the 'Screaming Chicken' covering the hood. Slatted taillights, an aggressive chin spoiler, a true Shaker hood, and all the other Trans Am goodies make this the definitive performance car of the era. And because this is a T-Top car, open-air cruising is just seconds away.

The restorers obviously knew that this was a very special car the moment that they laid eyes on it, and as a result the silver leather upholstery is in outstanding condition thanks to a comprehensive refurbishment back to stock. OK, so the silver is totally 1970s, but that really is the point with one of these cars. In fact, every surface inside the car is some hue of silver or gray and in equally great shape. The dash is covered in engine-turned appliques that was a Trans Am trademark for, well, a decade, and the gauges look virtually new with bright markings and crystal-clear lenses. Just about every feature available was standard equipment on the Anniversary models, including A/C, power windows, tilt wheel, and a positively awesome AM/FM/8-track stereo. You'll also note that this is a 4-speed car, which makes it THE Trans Am Anniversary model to own, and the Hurst T-handle shifter practically taunts the driver to bang through some gears and have some fun. Carpets are plush below, the rear seats are virtually untouched, and the T-Tops are always a desired option. The trunk is equally finished and bone stock, down to the space-saver spare and jack assembly, neither of which appear to have ever been used.

In 1979, the Trans Am was perhaps the most potent of the American muscle cars still on the market. The 4-speed cars like this received a genuine Pontiac 400 cubic inch V8, and performance was impressive enough to make Corvette owners nervously look over their shoulders. Numbers matching and still looking like the factory intended in just about every way, this car has received correct maintenance and conscientious care throughout the years. From the big scoop living atop the air cleaner to the oil pan, this engine is exactly what you'd find in 1979, and probably just as clean too. It runs superbly, with a definite muscle car bark from the H-pipe dual exhaust with factory-style chambered mufflers, which is one of the only changes from stock that's visible, although it's certainly welcomed as it makes a big difference in terms of performance. The chassis is fully detailed and incredibly solid, and again, thanks to the comprehensive restoration there are new and restored components abound. Gorgeous aluminum wheels wear what may be the last set of 225/70/15 Goodyear Polysteel radials on the planet.

Documentation includes numerous original owner's and dealership manuals, a factory build sheet, build receipts, an album full of pictures that covered the build, and various other 10th anniversary provenance that really add to the lore of this car. Pretty impressive, right? All you have to do is call and take it home today.
