Very First Crank Original 1980 Trans Am. Has Been Sitting For 20 Years, Survivor/Project
I purchased this TA not knowing what was going to work if anything. I put a
new battery in it, made sure it had oil, put transmission fluid in it. Put
gas in the tank. Had to put gas down the carburetor first to prime it. It
started right up and sounded great, Transmission seems to be working
properly. Guages work, radio, exterior and interior lights work, clock
works. everything seems to work except on window, Car does not smoke. This
car is totally all original.. After this video, we found out the car had 3
bent and one broken pushrods, and she still ran..

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!
1979 Trans Am six speed Vortec 350 with CSU blow through, Vortech V1 first test runs and ride along
My friend Dustin decided to go CSU blowthru for his Vortech V1 in his TA.
Engine is a stock Vortec 350 with a cam and carb intake. Still running
cast manifolds. Car has 3.73 gears. Still working the bugs out and
needs to install the MSD box. Boost
is only 2-3 lbs at this time, not sure if there is belt issue or what. I
tried to convince him to go turbo but he
had this blower already. It definitely goes good for the first day. When
he gets 6-8 lbs out of it this thing will absolutely fly!
