Description Jump to top

Motoexotica is proud to offer this gorgeous 1979 Pontiac Trans Am. This immaculate car is one of the rarest second generation Trans Am’s around. This was the last year for the big displacement V-8 in a T/A. This incredible unmolested car gives true definition to the last of the great American Muscle cars. We have in hand the original build sheet for the car. This particular car started its life in Sturgeon Bay, WI Where it was purchased new from Jorns Pontiac Buick.

Beginning in 1978, Pontiac engineers reversed years of declining power by raising the compression ratio in the Pontiac 400 through the installation of different cylinder heads with smaller combustions chambers (taken from the Pontiac 350). This increased power by 10% for a total of 220 during the 1978-79 model years. The 400/403 options remained available until 1979, when the 400 inĀ³ engines were only available in the 4-speed transmission Trans Ams and Formulas (the engines had actually been stockpiled from 1978, when PMD had cut production of the engine). 1979 marked the 10th Anniversary of the Trans Am, and a special anniversary package was made available: silver paint with a silver leather interior. The 10th Anniversary cars also featured a special Firebird hood decal, which extended off of the hood and onto the front fenders. In 1980 due to ever-increasing emissions restrictions, Pontiac dropped all of its large displacement engines.

The motor is the powerful Oldsmobile powered 403 cubic inch big block 6.6 liter V-8 that produces plenty of power and torque. The motor is connected to a smooth shifting automatic transmission. Under the hood looks to be pretty well stock and unmolested. So you can be sure that this car will continue to climb in value over the years. The car drives amazing, and is a joy to drive with power steering and brakes. The car has front disc brakes that help it to strop in the blink of an eye. The car does not pull to either side and drives really smooth. The car is equipped with power disc brakes and power steering.

The exterior is finished in the classic gold with gold wheels and the nice big bird on the hood that we have all come to love so much over the years. The paint is fresh and in great shape and shows no significant signs of wear. The bird on the hood is new and is in excellent shape as well. The gold wheels are covered in newer Uniroyal tires with plenty of tread. The interior of this car looks as if it just rolled off the showroom floor. The seats carpets and headliner are impeccable. When we purchased the car the camel leatherette seats and steering wheel were covered in plastic wrap. This just goes to show how well this car has been attended to through the years. This car is very solid and shows no signs of rust or abuse. This nostalgic car is one that everyone knows when they see one drive down the road thanks to several TV appearances and body lines that made it an instant classic the day it rolled off the assembly line. The mileage reads 63,238 and is being sold on a clear mileage exempt title due to its age.
