Pontiac made them, Hollywood made them famous and, over 30 years later,
they're still awesome to drive and be seen in. Value curves have been
heading skyward for awhile now, lead by cars like this awesome '79 Trans Am
SE. Unrestored with just 31,357 actual miles, they don't get more authentic
Assembled at GM's Van Nuys, California manufacturing facility, this
well-optioned Trans Am met its first owner through Schneider-Gilbert
Pontiac in El Paso, Texas. A southwestern life has left the car rust-free
with straight panels and factory set panel gaps. The Starlight Black paint
has received some non-factory help over the years but over half of it
remains Van Nuys shot.
For 1979, Pontiac did a bit of Trans Am tweaking. A mildly revised front
end features a straight and glossy urethane front bumper with the familiar
quad headlight setup anchored by a traditional red Pontiac arrow. . At the
back of the car, correct molding frames an electrically defrosted rear
window above a correct black valence that's complete with factory blacked
out tail lights.
Under the hood, the original 400cid V8 remains planted in the subframe.
Rated at 220hp and 320lb ft of torque, this made the T/A one of the
strongest runners of its day. The bay is clean for an unrestored car, with
a mix of satin black and metallic blue highlighting the hard parts. Turn
the key and the engine comes to life, offering a surprisingly subdued
rumble at idle.
Underneath the car, the original Borg Warner T10 remains attached to the
400 while, out back a 10-bolt Safe-T-Track differential packs 3.23 gears. .
Around the drivetrain, Pontiac's legendary WS6 performance suspension
offers larger sway bars, better shocks and springs, a tighter steering gear
box and new-for-1979 power front and rear disc brakes. Combined with power
steering and BFG Radial TA tires wrapped around gold snow flake wheels,
this T/A gets around corners with ease.
Open those long doors and a factory fresh Camel Tan cloth interior comes
into view. Unrestored with very little visible wear, the cabin remains just
as Van Nuys assembled it. Options include supportive bucket seats, power
windows and locks, air conditioning, a tilt column and an AM/FM stereo with
tape player. From the carpet to the T-tops, everything remains dealership
From an original build sheet to warranty info and an owners manual, there
is plenty of original paperwork with the car. Also included information
from PHS which offers further insight into the cars history.
High quality second generation Trans Ams are red-hot right now with the
value of clean, unique factory correct cars climbing steadily each year.
