model description
 

 

In 1979 Pontiac Released the 10th Anniversary Edition Trans Am to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the first Trans Am that rolled off the line in 1969. This was a limited production run of only 7500 Trans Ams. Really, the only options that were available on the 10th Anniversary Trans Am was the powertrain options. You had your choice of either the Pontiac 400 with the 4-Speed transmission, or the Olds 403 with the automatic transmission. Out of the 7500 production cars, 1,817 were equipped with the 400/4-speed combo, and 5,683 were equipped with the 403/auto combo. Standard on the 10th Anniversary was the two-tone silver and charcoal paint. This paint scheme was accented by a special 5 color hood-bird which wings extended over the hood and onto the side fenders. The body of the car was also outlined in a special black and red stripe package much like the "Special Edition" striping of the earlier Special Edition Trans Ams. There were also special badges (decals) that were placed on the car signifying the 10th Anniversary Edition. All of the 10th Anniversary car were nicely equipped with the WS6 handling package, custom silver interior with "shag" carpet and the Firebird emblem embroidered in the door panels and also in the rear seat back. Also standard on all 10th Anniversary Trans Ams were power windows, power locks, Air Conditioning, power trunk release.... in sort, pretty much every option available at the time. Also, the interior was also trimmed with a special "Engine-turned" gear shift bezel that went nicely with the dash, which for this model was illuminated red instead of the normal white gauges. You really can't tell in the day, but at night it gives a whole new feel and look to the inside. The T-tops were also a special mirrored finish instead of the drab "smoked" finish of T-tops seen previously. The 10th Anniversary Trans Am was also the first time you saw the "Turbo" wheels seen on later Special Edition Turbo, Pace Car, and other Turbo Trans Ams. All-in-All, this wasn't your ordinary "run-of-the-mill" Trans Am. Just about everything on this car was taken to the next level to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of this popular Musclecar.

Unlike Special Edition Trans Ams of the past, this car can easily be identified by using the VIN number as a reference. Instead of the normal "S" or "W" to signify Firebird or Trans Am, the 10th Anniversary has an "X" in the second digit in the VIN number to signify it as a special 10th Anniversary Edition.

Exterior

The Silver and Charcoal exterior is in fully restored excellent condition. A full cosmetic restoration was completed approximately one year ago with less than 1000 miles driven on this stunning TA since so the paint is almost like new. As one can see in the photos, the paint has an awesome gloss, dazzling shine, and smooth finish. The trim and decals show like new on the car. Often Trans Am's will have particularly chipped up front ends; this car does not. The low front spoiler, which is very fragile and prone to damage, is in excellent condition as one can see in the photos. Both bumpers are in excellent shape with no flaking paint. The Turbo wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash and a great finish. The tires are literally brand new with less than 50 miles and correctly sized 225/70/15. There is one very tiny chip in the paint above the right inner headlight and a specific photo below of the area to show how unnoticeable it is.  There may be some very faint blemishes around the car that were too small to show up in photos, but nothing that is noticeable from standing even five feet away. All weather stripping is in new excellent condition. Trunk is complete and nicely detailed with spare tire, inflator canister, jack, base, and new trunk mat. To view a few photos from the restoration process please click here.

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

Window Date Codes

Please note that almost all of glass on this car, even both T-Tops, is date coded and original as most pieces predate the car's body build date of the third week of March 1979 (03C). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Windshield: NA - "N" denotes January and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the driver's side window was made in January of 1979.

Driver: TA - "T" denotes August and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the driver's side window was made in August of 1979.

Passenger: NA -
"N" denotes January and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the passenger's side window was made in January of 1979.

Rear: XA -
"X" denotes February and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the rear window was made in February 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: XA - "X" denotes February and "A" denotes 1979 meaning the passenger's side t-top was made in February of 1979.

 

 

Interior

The silver deluxe interior of the Trans Am looks utterly splendid. The new correct seat covers are in excellent condition with virtually no wear. The carpet is also in "like new" condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. The original dash has a couple of small hairline cracks on top of the dash, there is a specific photo of the area below, but otherwise is in excellent condition with no other cracks, fading, or sun damage. The original style correct TATA radio sounds amazing and the dash remains un cut, there area a few burned out pixels as one can see in the video. Even the power antenna works with a convenient manual toggle switch for operation. The newly installed door panels look excellent with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner is in ncie shape with no holes or stains and no sagging. The package tray looks great with no warping, fading, or sun damage. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever.

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


Mechanical

This Trans Am seems to be in good mechanical condition and it is ready to be enjoyed. The original numbers matching engine runs well with just under 32,000 miles of use. The factory catalytic converter remains on the car and demonstrates just how correct this car is, also two new mufflers were installed and splitters were professionally aligned and the exit pipes were secured to the car. The factory smog system, cruise control, egr., and all other engine parts remain on the car as it came from the factory. This Trans Am 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 excellent. The horn works as do all the lights, gauges, wipers, and blower.  Even the a/c blows cold and the power door locks work, which are common problems on this era Trans Am. The speedometer, tachometer, odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as they should, though the speedo can be jumpy and does make some noise. The power antenna also works and operates on a manual toggle switch mounted below the dash. The only item we are aware of that is not currently working on this Trans Am is the cruise control. This Trans Am has lots of power and handles amazingly. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially on a beautiful day with the t-tops removed


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1979 Tenth Anniversary Trans Am is in spectacular 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. Anniversary and Special edition GM classics always hold a high premium over their stand counterparts.  Verifiable originally is also extremely important in pricing on these cars and as once can see this Pontiac is documented and undoubtedly a correct TATA.  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 do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
