vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this documented and numbers matching 1979 Y84 Special Edition (SE) Trans Am in spectacular condition with only 71,260 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. Not only does this Trans Am have beautiful paint but it's also extremely solid with great lines. Everything on the Trams Am works; even the clock and the a/c. It looks great, runs awesome, and is a pleasure 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 (19) with SE pinstripes and Gold decals over Camel Hobnail cloth (62B) interior. This is also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag and build sheet both 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.

This Trans Am comes with the original build sheet, which is pictured below and in excellent condition. It is compete legible and very important to have as it verifies all of the high desirable options on the car as original. Very clearly visible on the build sheet is the RPO code "Y84," which authenticates this Trans Am as a true and original Special Edition. The last six digits of the car's VIN, 100936, are also on the build sheet indicating this is the correct build sheet for this Trans Am.

Please note that this Trans Am is "numbers matching." That means that the engine in the car is original and the same unit that was installed at the factory. The last six digits of the VIN, 100936, are stamped on the engine block and pictured below indicating that this is the original engine that was installed in the car brand new at the factory. The full stamping is "29N100936" and "2" indicates the Pontiac division of GM, the "9" is the model year, 1979, and the "N" is the plant where the car was produced, Norwood, OH. The paint and interior trim codes are also correct for this color combination. This Trans Am rolled off the assembly line during the first week of September in 1978 (09A).

The transmission is also correct and original as well with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured below. The transmission date code is also pictured below, "9M23N." The "9" is the model year, 1979. The "M" indicates the month, the "23" is the day of the month, and the "N" is the shift so the transmission was made on August 23, 1978 during the night shift.

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 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. The Gold snowflake wheels are in excellent condition with a nice finish and no curb rash. The tires are literally brand new with les than 50 miles on them. 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 shape 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. 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 complete with a correct trunk mat, space saver spare, inflator bottle, jack, jack base, and bumper hook.

With the spectacular paint, T-Tops, and the beautiful and iconic color combination 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 "6 15 78" stamp, or June 15, 1978. This stamping would be correct and original as it precedes the car's build date of the first week of September, 1978 (09A). 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 stampings are great to see in tact.

Window Date Codes

Please note that ALL of the the glass on this Trans Am, even both T-Tops, is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of this first week of September, 1978 (09A). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Windshield - UJ - The "U" denotes July and the "J" denotes 1978 meaning the windshield was made in July of 1978. This is correct as it predates the body build date.

Driver- TJ - The "T" denotes August and the "J" denotes 1978 meaning the driver's side window was made in August of 1978. This is correct as it predates the body build date.

Passenger - IJ - The "I" denotes June and the "J" denotes 1978 meaning the passenger side window was made in June of 1978. This is correct as it predates the body build date.

Rear - IJ - The "I" denotes June and the "J" denotes 1978 meaning the rear window was made in June of 1978. This is correct as it predates the body build date.

Driver's T-Top - IJ - The "I" denotes June and the "J" denotes 1978 meaning the driver side T-Top was made in June of 1978. This is correct as it predates the body build date.

Passenger T-Top - IJ - The "I" denotes June and the "J" denotes 1978 meaning the passenger side T-Top was made in June of 1978. This is correct as it predates the body build date. 

 

Interior

The Camel Hobnail cloth interior of the Trans Am looks fantastic. 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 nice with no stains, tears, or holes. The dash and console are in great shape with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The headliner is in awesome shape with no holes or stains and is not sagging at all. The package tray looks great with no fading or wrinkles. The door panels look good overall and both door pulls are solid and in tact. 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.


Mechanical

This Trans Am appears to be in very good overall mechanical condition. It is a nice driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. The car starts right away every time and runs well. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70 mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It runs cool and does not overheat. Also, the engine is clean, beautifully detailed, complete, and correct as one can see from the photos.

The horn works as do the indicators, exterior lights, interior lights, wipers, rear window defogger, and blower for the heater and a/c on all speeds. All of the gauges work and even the clock runs. One can observe the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video. This Trans Am has lots of power with the 403ci V8 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 stunning condition and a great value at our asking price. The market on for the Special Edition Trans Am is very strong right now, especially for correct, original, and low mileage examples like this Y84. This car turns heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes. Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson and stars of the future. In fact in 2016 Barrett Jackson has sold a 1979 Y84 Trans Am for $55,000, a 1980 Y84 for $71,500, a 1980 Y84 for $110,000 and a 1979 Tenth Anniversary Trans Am for $187,000, though it did have very low miles. Someone could easily enjoy this Special Edition Trans Am 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.
