model description
 

In addition to the styling change in 1979, 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!

Exterior

The Heritage brown exterior is in fully restored excellent award winning condition.  Full rotisserie restoration was completed in June of 2011 with approximately 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 Rally II wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash and a great finish.  The tires are almost like new in great shape with about 90% tread left, though they do make a bit of noise and could probably stand to be rebalanced.  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 photos from the restoration please click here.

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 utterly splendid.  The new correct seat covers are in like new 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 perfectly installed dash cap on it and is in excellent condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.  The original style radio sounds amazing and a working mp3 jack was installed for convenience.  All interior lights and gauges work as they should. 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 great 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 is in excellent mechanical condition and it is ready to be enjoyed.  The original numbers matching engine was removed and fully rebuilt during the full rotisserie restoration and only driven 1000 miles since restored.  The engine was built to factory specs to remain correct to this amazing car's heritage.  The factory catalytic converter remains on the car and demonstrates just how correct this car is.  The factory smog system, cruise control, egr., etc 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 brakes do not pull and even the emergency brake works as it should.  The entire brake system has been replaced and works great.  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. The only items not working currently on this Trans Am is the cruise control and power door locks.  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 Trans Am is in excellent award winning 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.
