But if you have to go down, then go down in style, and the exterior enhancements certainly added to the style. A new beak was fitted, 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 reamining 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

In 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 channelled to the radiator. Larger wheel air deflectors (or spats) were fitted, blending with the new spoiler

The 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!

On automatic cars you got the obligatory stiffer rear springs (25-lb/in higher deflection rating) that in Detroit-speak means "tuned". The rear stabilizer bar grew to .75" versus the .62" of the non-WS6 car and all stabilizer bars received polyurethane link bushings versus the softer rubber bushing of all other Firebirds. The shocks were valved a little tighter for greater wheel control, and a new steering gearbox with a ratio of 14:1 replaced the 16:1 variable ratio unit of lesser TA's (is there such a thing?). Finally where the rubber meets the road (literally) a P225/70R15 steel belted radial of Goodyear or Uniroyal origin was mounted on a set of 15 x 8 inch wide snowflake wheels. The wheels are easily recognized by the deep dish look versus the flush appearance of the standard T/A snowflakes.

Exterior

The blue exterior is in great driver condition.  As one can see in the photos, the paint has a nice gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  Often many Trans Am's will have particularly chipped up front ends; this car does not and the low front spoiler is in good condition as one can see in the photos.  The decals appear to be original; they do show some age and are not perfect, which is visible in the photos, but they look great considering they are 34 years.  There is one spot on the left rear spoiler that shows some spider webbing and a specific photo of the area below.  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.  The 8 inch snowflake wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash, a brilliant finish, and 4 new center cap emblems.  The tires appear to have about 75% tread left. All of the weather stripping is in great usable condition.  Trunk is complete and nicely detailed with spare tire, inflator canister, jack, base, and new trunk mat.

This Trans Am has a stamping on the radiator core support, which is pictured below.  The core support shows a "3 19 79" stamp, or March 19, 1979.  This stamping would be correct and original as it precedes the car's build date of the first week of June, 1979 (06A).  As one can imagine, if this Trans Am had ever sustained even a minor front end collision this part would have been repaired or replaced.  The original stamping is great to see in tact.

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

 

Interior

The light blue deluxe interior of the Trans Am looks splendid.  The original seat covers are in amazing condition and look as excellent in person as they do in the photos with no excessive wear.  The carpet looks like new with no major stains, rips, or holes.  The original dash is in good condition with no major cracks, fading, or sun damage.  The Kenwood radio and 6x9 Kenwood speakers sound amazing and most importantly, the original dash was not cut for the installation.  All interior lights and gauges work as they should outside of the clock.  The original door panels look great with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact.  The headliner is in great shape with no holes or stains and no sagging.  This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever.  Firebird interiors are not know to wear well and the excellent condition of this original interior is a testament to the care this car has received throughout its life.

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


Mechanical

This Trans Am appears to be in excellent mechanical condition and all of the accessories work, even the a/c blows cold.  The mechanics and the way this car runs and drives are some of its strongest points.  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 great.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull; even the the emergency brake works as it should.  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, wipers, and blower for the heater work as they should.  The speedometer, tachometer, odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as they should. This Trans Am has lots of power and handles great. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially on a beautiful day.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1979 Trans Am is in excellent 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 do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
