about the dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1963 to 1982 Corvettes.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this 1979 Firebird Esprit that is in excellent driver condition and priced to sell with only 2500 miles on new 350 crate motor and rebuilt transmission. This Firebird is completely rust free and very solid with great lines.  It looks great, runs awesome, and is fun to drive, especially with the T tops off rowing the gears.  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 combinations of Nocturne Blue over Light Blue deluxe interior.  This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag pictured below as well as the factory build sheet that is also induced and pictured below.  Please peruse all of the photos below to get a true sense of this Firebird.

The Firebird set record sales in the 1979 calendar year as this example provides good reason why.  The Firebird redesign of the front and rear bumpers was well received, especially the continuous rear tail lights.  The Firebird also introduced "Hobnail" interior in the deluxe option package for 1979.  Design changes to the front wheel flares and rear spoiler round out the new design for the 1979 Firebirds.

As a side note, this Pontiac is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our vehicles 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 Firebird, just give us a call.

Exterior

The blue exterior is in excellent driver condition.  As one can see in the photos, the paint has a nice gloss, good shine, and smooth finish and was recently painted.  The chrome trim and decals show well on the car.  Often many Firebirds will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not, both bumpers are in excellent shape with no spider webbing or flaking paint.  There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  There may be some small blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away.  Tires are like new sized 255/60/15 and the snowflake wheels and center caps are new reproductions.  The Esprit decal package is a nice compliment to the blue paintwork.  This Firebird is extremely rust free and does not even have any surface rust underneath.  T tops are in great working condition and all weather stripping is in great usable condition.  Trunk is complete and nicely detailed with spare tire, new trunk mat, jack, and accessories.   

The Firebird looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Window Date Codes

Please note that almost all of the side glass on this car, the side glass, rear glass, and even both t-tops are date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of the third week of May 1979 (05C). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Driver: GA - "G" denotes April and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the driver's side window was made in April of 1979.

Passenger: GA -
"G" denotes April and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the passenger's side window was made in April of 1979.

Rear: GA -
"G" denotes April and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the rear window was made in April of 1979.

Driver's T-Top: XA - "X" denotes February and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the driver's side t-top was made in February of 1979.

Passenger T-Top: LA - "L" denotes March and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the passenger side t-top was made in March of 1979.

 

Interior

 

The light blue deluxe interior of the Firebird looks splendid.  The seats look in person as they do in the photos with no excessive wear, just a small amount the driver's bolster and couple spots on the passenger seat, there are specific photos of those areas below.  Please note that these are the original seats and material, not some cheap aftermarket replacements or covers.  The carpet is newly replaced with no major stains, rips, or holes.  The original dash is in good condition with no major cracks, fading, or sun damage. All interior lights and gauges  work as they should outside of the clock.  The door panels look great with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact.  Headliner and package tray have also newly been replaced and are in great condition.  This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever.  Firebird interiors are not know to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a testament to the care this car has received.

 

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Mechanical

This Firebird is in excellent mechanical condition and all of the accessories work.  The mechanics and the way this car runs and drives are some of its strongest points.  Much resources and time have went into making this Firebird an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and highway speeds.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs excellent.  The car shifts well and the clutch feels good.  The brakes do not pull as new calipers were installed.  Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos.  The horn works as do all the interior and exterior lights, all gauges(except clock), wipers, and blower for the heater.  The speedometer, tachometer, odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as they should. This firebird has plenty of power and is really fast with over 300HP.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the 4-speed transmission and t-tops out on a beautiful day.

Below you will see a picture of a folder of receipts well over an inch thick that total more than the asking price of this car.  For example:  $1800 for 350 crate motor, $600 for rebuilt transmission, $300 plus for new clutch and accessories, $240 for new stripe kit, $400 for new Flowmaster 40's exhaust 2.5", $300 for new Edelbrock carb., $100 for new fuel pump, $100 for new distributor, $200 for headman headers, $200 for Edelbrock intake, and this goes on and on and on.  Not to mention the newer tires and snow flake rims, plus the newer paint job, new front grills, new shocks, steering pump, etc. etc.   It is easy to see the undeniable value this car presents.  


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1979 Firebird is in excellent driver condition.  It is a great value and we have it priced to sell.  This car 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 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 email or call with any questions.
