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

your Corvette, Cadillac, Camaro, or Trans Am. Founded in 2005, this is
a very focused operation. We do it because we enjoy it. We are a
collectors and enthusiasts; therefore we look for cars that excite us.
I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked because it
is special or rare and because we like it.

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.
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.
Am has a stamping on the radiator core support, which is pictured below.
The core support shows a "5 14 79" stamp, or
14, 1979. This stamping would be correct and original as
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.
Am looks just as good in person as it does in the
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
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, 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.
