Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this 1979 Survivor
Firebird which is in very original condition and priced to sell.
This highly optioned Firebird is very stock, correct, and is in
wonderful driver condition, with only 53,025 Actual miles. It is
loaded with factory ordered options such as: T-Top roof, deluxe
hobnail interior, factory AC, Power Windows, Pulse wipers, Rear
defrost, and much more. This Firebird is very solid, has nice body
panel fit, and great lines. It looks good, runs awesome, and is fun
to drive. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Firebird
that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One
could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase
price in years to come. This Firebird is finished in the beautiful
and desirable color combination of Starlight Black over Black deluxe
cloth interior. This is the correct and original color scheme as
verified by the trim tag pictured below. The low original mileage is
verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear
Ohio title, pictured below, that indicates the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the
photos, video, and information below to get a true sense of how
clean and original this Firebird really is.
As a side note, this Formula is not a
dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful
inspection. Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to
go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention
as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in
person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize
each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so
you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question
about the Pontiac, just give us a call.

A new styling treatment to the front end was the most striking
change for the 1979 Firebird, laying back the nose at a 22-degree
angle from the "Batmobile's" 16-degree angle for better
aerodynamics. The Trans Am became a "bottom breather", picking up
some fresh air for cooling at the bumper grilles, the remaining
amount from underneath the front bumper. The traditional grille
between the headlamps was gone, replaced by a pair mounted in the
bumper pad extensions. The grilles were in a matte black and
contained the turn signal/park lamp lenses in the upper outer
corners. The now common four rectangular headlamps were each set in
deep recesses, surrounded by low gloss bezels. The Pontiac crest
continued to reside in the center of the front fascia.
addition to the styling change, a bright spot to the front end
restyle was a deeper front spoiler, now made of a flexible material
rather than the hard plastic of the '77-78's. The change in material
made it a bit more friendly to curb stones and parking lot dips. The
spoiler actually was responsible for a major portion of the cooling
air which was channeled to the radiator. Larger wheel air deflectors
(or spats) were fitted, blending with the new spoiler.
most drastic and best looking change to the rear had to be the tail
lamp assemblies. The lamps now stretched corner to corner, with a
hinged fuel filler door in the center. While this may seem enough of
a change, the big news was that the tail lamps had a "blacked out"
look; at least until the lights were activated, then the red was
proudly broadcast. For 1979, this was major cool!
Starlight Black exterior is in nice condition. As one can see in
the photos, the paint has a good gloss, decent shine, and smooth
finish. This Firebird appears to have had one repaint years ago
and still looks good overall but paint does show its age in
certain areas, please see specific photos below. Both doors open
and shut nicely. Often Firebirds will have particularly chipped
up front ends; this car does not and both bumpers are in nice
condition with no fading, but there is some spider webbing on the
front bumper, rear bumper is in great shape. There are no major
imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the
photos. We have include specific photos below of the lower
quarters, rockers, spring perches, and areas most prone to rust
to give any perspective buyer the most accurate representation
of the car and show how good it is. There are some small
blemishes around the car that are be to faint to show up in photos,
but nothing that is really noticeable from about five feet away.
The original rally II wheels are in nice unrestored condition
and the trim rings still shine nicely. The trunk is very clean
and solid and nicely detailed with its original correct trunk
mat, spare tire, jack, and the cars original speakers, which the
drivers side speaker still retains its original insulation box.
As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car it
is very solid.
Formula looks just as good in person as it does in the

The Black deluxe cloth original
interior of this Firebird looks splendid. The original seats
are in amazing condition with no split seams, or signs of
excessive wear at all. Please note that these are the
original seats, not some cheap aftermarket covers or
replacements. The carpet also appears to be original and
also looks good with no major stains, rips, or holes. The
original dash pad is in remarkable condition with no cracks,
fading, warping, or sun damage. The original door panels
look great with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are
solid and in tact. The headliner is in decent shape with no
holes or stains. The package tray looks good for being
original. All interior plastics and in good factory
condition, are not chalky or brittle, and have good color
and finish. All interior lights and gauges work as they
should with the obvious exception of the clock. The am/fm
cassette stereo works well and most importantly the dash has
not been cut or altered in any way. This car has not been
smoked in; there are no burn marks and no aroma of
cigarettes what so ever. Firebird interiors are not known to
wear well and the excellent condition of this original
interior is a testament to the care and attention this car
has received throughout its life.
interior looks just as good in person as it does in the
appears to be in very good mechanical condition. We have put
about 40 miles on the car during our ownership and in that time
the car has run great with no issues and has been completely
reliable. In the video below one can see the car
accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through
all the gears, braking to stoplight, accelerating away, and
going through some curves. Please note that it shifts properly,
there are no strange vibrations, and the car performs quite well
overall. The car is an exceptional driver that feels great on
the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting
or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well,
and runs great. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one
side or the other. This drive line looks virtually unmolested
and factory correct including the exhaust on the car which still retains
a catalytic converter and the transverse style
muffler with single exit pipe. Also, the engine is very clean
and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. This is a
factory A/C car and the factory A/C equipment is still in
place, but one of the lines has been disconnected. The horn works as do all the interior and exterior
lights, wipers, and blower for the heater. Not enough can be
said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.
Overall, this 1979 Firebird is in
nice original condition and is a true bargain at our
asking price. It is a great value and will only
appreciate over time. The market is very hot on these
late F-Body cars right now, especially for original low
actual mile examples like this one. This Firebird turns
heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes. The
value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent
years. They are all solid investments for a collector or
the average enthusiast. Cars like this are the Barrett
Jackson and Mecum stars of the future. One could easily
enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for
more than the purchase price with minimal effort.
Thank you for looking and please do not
hesitate to email or call with any questions.
