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 in great overall condition featuring an original interior that is in very nice shape, with original 8"snowflake wheels, and a nice professional exterior repaint in original Nocturne Blue. This Trans Am was built for convenience with a host of ordered options including: power windows, power doors, Factory AC, WS7 handling package, Tilt wheel, cruise control, Glove box trunk release, Rear window defrost, Deluxe Hobnail cloth interior, etc. etc. All of these desirable options are verified as original as we located the build sheet for this car, pictured below, under the rear seat and thankfully all of the option codes are legible.  This Trans Am has no visible rust 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 Camel Tan 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 nice and correct 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.

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 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.

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 channeled 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.

Exterior

The Nocturne blue exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a brilliant gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. This Trans Am was treated to a professional repaint within the last five years with all new decals that have been cleared over so they should never fade or crack. The wheel wells in the engine compartment, brake booster, valve covers, intake, and block have all been painted in beautiful Nocturne Blue, which is a very nice detail that really sets the car off. Often many Trans Am's will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not, both bumpers are in excellent shape with no flaking or faded 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 have good tread left and are sized 225/70/15 and the snowflake wheels are OEM originals, with 4 new center cap emblems. All weather stripping is in great usable condition. Trunk is complete and nicely detailed with spare tire, inflator canister, jack, base, and matching vinyl trunk mat with spare tire cover. Please note that the factory original trunk mat is just under the blue trunk mat that is present in the photos so the future owner could easily remove the blue mat for a more stock appearance.

This Trans Am has a stamping on the radiator core support, which is pictured below.  The core support shows a "5 14 79" stamp, or May 14, 1979.  This stamping would be correct and original as it precedes the car's build date of the fifth week of June, 1979 (06E).  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 camel tan deluxe interior of the Trans Am looks splendid and is in amazing original condition. The Lombardy cloth with hobnail insert seat covers are in good condition with no excessive wear. These seat covers are factory originals, not a cheap replacement seat cover in non original cloth. The carpet is good condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. There is one spot in the driver's foot well near the seat base, but as one can see in the photos it is not very noticeable. The original dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. A very nice stereo system was professionally installed in this Trans Am and sounds and works excellent. A JVC head unit with single CD was installed replacing the worn out original stereo with a matching 10 disc CD changer mounted in the trunk. Controls for the CD changer were tastefully mounted in the map pocket of the center console. 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. 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 or 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 is in excellent mechanical condition with only 67,480 original miles on the numbers matching drive line. 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 excellent. The brakes do not pull and stop as they 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, blower for the heater and a/c, and even the a/c system blows cold. The speedometer, tachometer, odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as they should. The previous owner installed lowering springs in the front to give this car an even more aggressive stance.  This Trans Am has lots of power and handles amazingly since it is a factory WS7 special handling package car. 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.
