Seven Hills Motorcars is
Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist anda licensed and
registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio. With many years of
focused experience we specialize in 1957 to 1982 Corvettes and other GM

a very focused operation. We do it because we enjoy it. We are a

I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked because it
is special or rare and because we like it.

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this 1979 Trans Am which is
in excellent driver condition and priced to sell. This Trans Am is
very original and unmolested featuring original seat covers,
original wheels, and believed to be original decals. It was built
for convenience with a host of ordered options including: power
windows, power doors, power antenna, AC, Ziebarted when new, Tilt
wheel, cruise control, Pulse wipers, Glove box trunk release, Rear
window defrost, 4 wheel disc brakes/WS6 handling package, Mini spare
tire, Deluxe Hobnail cloth interior, 8" snowflake wheels, etc. This
Trans Am has no visible rust since Ziebarted when new and is very
solid with great lines. It looks great, runs awesome, and is fun to
drive. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Trans Am
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 Trans Am is finished in the beautiful
and desirable color combinations of Nocturne Blue over Light Blue
Hobnail deluxe interior. This is the factory color scheme as
verified on the trim tag pictured below. Please peruse all of the
photos below to get a true sense of how clean and original this
Trans Am really is.
As a side note, this Trans Am 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.
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
exterior is in great driver condition. As one can see in the
photos, the paint has a nice gloss, deep shine, and smooth
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.
Am has a stamping on the radiator core support, which is pictured below.
The core support shows a "3 19 79" stamp, or
19, 1979. This stamping would be correct and original as
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.
Am looks just as good in person as it does in the
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.
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
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, 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.
