This Norwood-built WS4 1979 Trans Am is somewhat of a rare bird, with its
Starlight Black paint and a red cloth interior and only 6455 miles on the
clock. It has been lovingly preserved by knowledgeable experts since the
day it rolled out of the factory, making it one of the most beautiful Trans
Ams we've ever featured.
The black finish is simply spectacular, and it demonstrates none of the
usual issues you find with original cars of this vintage. There's no orange
peel, no checking or fading, and even the graphics remain bright and crisp,
all proof of the outstanding care and workmanship that went into the car.
Body alignment is excellent, including the nose cone, rear wing, and, of
course, the unique Trans Am hood scoop. The net effect is a gorgeous T/A
that will turn heads not because it's an unusual car, but because of how
brilliantly presented it is.
In 1979, the Trans Am could be optioned with a higher compression
Oldsmobile 403 V8 which when mated to an automatic transmission as in this
Poncho, made an exceptional, for the time, 185 horsepower. Hidden under
that massive hood scoop, you'll find correct GM Corporate Blue paint on the
block, heads, and tinwork, and it is, of course, the original, matching
numbers engine. Look at the brightness of the wiring, the correct hoses and
lines throughout the engine bay, and the proper hardware holding it all
together. It starts quickly and easily, idles as it should, and if you're
going to drive it, it does, indeed, drive like a new car.
The engine is backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission, and the
extraordinary preservation continues underneath.
There's exactly zero rust anywhere, with the floors still showing clean
satin black factory paint. Everything under there is factory-issue,
including the Exhaust system,
suspension, shocks, and correctly stamped gas tank. And there just aren't
many factory wheels that look better than the gold-toned "snowflake" alloys
on this one, which wears a set of period-correct Uniroyal radials.
Setting this Trans Am apart from many of its stable-mates, however, is the
brilliant Carmine Red bucket seat interior. Where an overwhelming majority
of 1979 Trans Ams received silver or black interiors, the black-on-red
combination never goes out of style and always looks sophisticated and
upscale. Exceptionally well preserved, the unusual velour seats are
supportive and comfortable, and I can guarantee that you won't see many of
these at the next Pontiac Nationals. Everything works as it should, and the
condition is beyond reproach in every way that matters. Even the trunk is
unmarked, including the original space saver spare, jack assembly, and
Almost every low-mileage second generation Trans Am we've been able to find
has sold quickly and for price-guide-busting prices, and this one is one of
the best. Unusual, beautifully preserved, and ready to show at any level,
it is truly investment grade in every way. Don't miss another opportunity
to put an appreciating asset in your collection, especially one that will
collect trophies instead of dust. Call today!

132741 / 1979 Pontiac Trans Am

This low mileage 1979 Tran Am is a fully documented, all original time
capsule which comes factory equipped with Pontiac's highly desirable 6.6
litre W72 engine and an M21 Muncie 4-speed transmission for a FRACTION of
what most investment grade classics cost.
Assembled at GM's Van Nuys, California manufacturing facility, this super
clean, all original Pontiac Trans Am was shipped to Andy Klein Pontiac-GMC
in Overland Park, Kansas on November 20th of 1978. Exceptionally maintained
since the day its proud owner parked it in his driveway, the car has never
been taken apart for any restoration or major body repairs and still
presents a clear and flat coat of original GM code 11 Cameo White paint.
Since those straight and rust free original body panels have never been
disassembled, they still display completely accurate panel gaps which give
the car surprisingly solid fit and a cool factory fresh appearance which
modern builds simply can't duplicate.
Pop this Trans Ams long, colorful hood and you'll find an all original PWH
stamped 400 cubic inch W72 engine which, in the eyes of many hardcore
Pontiac enthusiasts, is the last true Pontiac V8 ever produced. Thanks to
government mandated emissions standards, performance had almost been
legislated out of existence, and that left the Trans Am suffering a bit of
an identity crisis. By utilizing smaller "6X" heads from a 350 and a
revised camshaft, the W72 created higher compression and successfully
reversed almost a decade of declining horsepower numbers. At the
top of the motor, an original Rochester 4-barrel carburetor sits under the
cars awesome shaker scoop and an original HEI distributor sends power to
the cylinders through black plug wires. Below that carburetor, original GM
corporate blue paint coats the entire block and original Exhaust manifolds send Exhaust into a high performance factory Exhaust system.
Take a look under this all original Trans Am and you'll find a straight,
rust-free frame which still displays a nice coat of GM satin black paint,
and clean, solid floors which carry absolutely no defect camouflaging
undercoating. Behind the motor, a W72-exclusive Muncie M21 4-speed manual
transmission sends power to the cars original 10 bolt rear end, and a
standard WS6 handling package. For 1979, the newly dubbed WS6 package
included larger sway bars, better shocks and springs, a tighter steering
gear box and newly designed code J65 power front and rear disc brakes that,
when combined with the cars standard power steering, made for serious
handling ability and greatly reduced stopping distances. In the middle of
the floor pans, an original dual Exhaust system still carries original GM
mufflers and catalytic converters in front of correct stainless side
splitter tips, and, at the corners of the car, power flows to the pavement
through ORIGINAL 225/70 white letter Goodyear Polysteel Radials and
awesome, original 15 inch snowflake wheels.
Open this Trans Ams solid doors and you'll find an absolutely pristine
original deluxe interior that shows virtually no signs of wear at all. The
firm and comfortable high backed seats are especially nice pieces which
have the supple appearance of much more expensive hardware, and the
original black carpet looks great beneath correct rubber mats. In the
middle of the car, a clean black console houses chrome switches for
optional power windows behind a chrome Hurst shifter with a cool Pontiac
shift knob. Above the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight
around the cars mirrored tops and optional dome lamp; and in front of the
seats, an excellent looking engine turned dash bezel houses crystal clear
gauges above HVAC controls and an original Delco-GM AM/FM cassette player.
At the sides of the car, awesome, plush door panels feature bright red
emblems above well-maintained stainless trim, chrome switches and chrome
handles. And in front of the driver, a correct aluminum Formula steering
wheel sits on an optional tilt steering column.
This clean 1979 Trans Am is the perfect opportunity to own an investment
grade muscle car that you can still drive around town and show off. Call,
