Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this PHS documented 1979 Y84 Special Edition Trans Am which is in spectacular condition with only 46,760 original miles. The market on Special Edition Trans Ams is absolutely red hot right now and this example is one of the best available on the market today. This Trans Am features a recent professional repaint that looks absolutely stunning. It's a striking color combination and really brings you back to a time when the Trans Am was the performance car of an era. Not only does this Trans Am have beautiful paint but it's also extremely solid with great lines. Everything on the Trams Am works and even the clock and the a/c. 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 combination of Starlight Black with SE pinstripes over Black Hobnail cloth interior. This is arguably the most desired and appealing color combination available on these second generation Trans Am's and also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag pictured below. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, and other information below to get a true sense of clean and nice 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.

   

 

model description

 

 


A new styling treatment to the front end was the most striking change for the 1979 Trans Am, 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 Starlight Black exterior is in outstanding restored condition. This Trans Am was treated to a recent repaint with all new correct factory decals. This repaint was professionally done and and the decals and SE stripping look excellent. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a excellent gloss, deep shine, and smooth glass-like finish. Often many Trans Am's will have particularly chipped up front ends; this car does not and even the low front spoiler is in great condition as one can see in the photos. Both bumpers are in very nice condition with no spider-webbing or flaking 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 feet away. The new 17" snowflake wheels are in wonderful condition with no curb rash and a brilliant finish. The wheels also have all new lug nuts and four new center caps. As one can seen in the many photos of the underside, this Trans Am is totally solid. We have also included specific photos of the spring perches, lower front and rear quarters, and other areas on the car most prone to rust. The trunk is very solid, and comes with a correct trunk mat, original GM T top bags, and a hidden 300 Watt stereo amp with new Pioneer 6x9 speakers.

With the spectacular paint, beautiful and iconic color combination, and the 17" snowflake wheels this is truly one of the best looking trans Ams out there. I cannot count the number of compliments I have received while driving this car around. It was actually a bit difficult to photograph the car because the paint has such a mirror shine and is so reflective.

This Trans Am has a stamping on the radiator core support, which is pictured below. The core support shows a "5 8 79" stamp, or May 8, 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 Black Hobnail cloth deluxe interior of the Trans Am looks great. The seats look just as good in person as they do in the photos with no tears, rips, or excessive wear. The carpet also looks marvelous with no stains, tears, or holes. The stereo has been upgraded to a modern in dash Sony CD player with USB and MP3 hookups and looks and sounds great. The 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 is not sagging at all. The package tray looks good, but does have some wrinkles in it. The dash is in good condition with no fading or sun damage, and one small crack that is visible in the photos, but not very notable. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever. Please note in the video below how both seat belts operate and retract properly. This is a very common problem on this era "F-Body" and a small, but very important, detail most buyers do not think to check. Firebird interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this mostly original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care this Trans Am 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 very good mechanical condition. It is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts well, runs great, there are no strange vibrations, and the car performs quite nice overall. It starts right away every time and idles well. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. The horn works as do all the exterior lights, wipers, and blower for the heater and a/c on all speeds. All of the gauges work as they should; even the clock works and keeps accurate time. The a/c on this Trans Am works and blows cold. One can observe the a/c compressor engaging properly and turning on in the video below. 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 with the T-tops out on a beautiful day.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1979 SE Trans Am is in terrific condition and is a true bargain at our asking price. The market for the Special Edition Trans Am is very strong right now especially for an original low mile example like this TA. It is a great value and will only appreciate over time. This Trans Am is the one to have due to the infamous and iconic color combination, the originality, and its well preserved stock appearance really adds to its value. This car turns heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years and this one is especially investment grade. They are all solid investments for a collector or the average enthusiast. Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson and Mecum 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.

 

We have included a photo below of the VIN stamp on the engine block. It is in a very difficult location to access and it was very hard to read so that is why we included a photo for any perspective buyer's own scrutiny. The first digit is a "2," which would be correct and indicate the Pontiac division of General Motors. There also looks like a "19," and possibly followed by a "2," which would correspond with the VIN of the car which is "192049," but the following digits are very hard to make out. All of the trim and paint codes are correct for the car. This Trans Am rolled off the assembly line in Van Nuys, CA during the first week of June, 1979 (06A).

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
