Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this 1979 Trans Am
in great driver condition and priced to sell. This Trans Am has very
low original miles of 24,290, verified as "Actual" on our clear Ohio
Title, which is pictured below. The overall well preserved condition
of this car is further evidence to the low original mileage on this
car. This Trans Am is in very nice overall condition featuring an
original interior that is in beautiful shape, the original numbers matching
403 V8, original 15x7
snowflake wheels, and a nice professional exterior repaint in
original Cameo White with brand new blue decals. It looks great,
runs awesome, and is a fantasic driver that feels great on the road. 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 Cameo
White over Black vinyl 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 nice and clean 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.
white exterior is in very nice driver condition. As one can see
in the photos, the paint has a brilliant gloss, deep shine, and
smooth glass like finish. This Trans Am was treated to a professional
repaint within the last five years with all new decals recently
added. 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. There are some small bumps on left
front corner of the hood and specific photos of the area below. The
tires are sized 225/70/15 with about 90% tread left. The snowflake wheels are OEM originals
with 4 new center caps and new lug nuts. The trunk is solid and clean with
a new trunk mat.
Am has a stamping on the radiator core support, which is
pictured below. The core support shows a "10 30 78"
stamp, or October 30, 1978. This stamping would be
correct and original as it precedes the car's build date
of the first week of December, 1978 (12A). 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.
Window Date Codes
Driver: YJ - "Y" denotes October and "J" denotes
1978 meaning the driver's side window was made in
October of 1978.
Passenger: NG - "N" denotes
and "G" denotes 1977 meaning the passenger's side
window was made in
January of 1977.
Rear: CJ - "C" denotes November and "J" denotes 1978
meaning the rear window was made in November of 1978.
Please note that the door glass and rear window are date coded and original as each piece
predates the car's body build date of this first week of
December, 1978 (12A). Original glass is a good indication
that this car has had no major accident history
and never sustained significant damage.
The Trans Am looks just as good in person as it does in
The black vinyl deluxe interior of
this Trans Am looks splendid. The original vinyl seat covers
are in good condition with no excessive wear. These seat
covers are factory originals which are 34 years old and still look
good although there are two seam splits at the top of the
drivers seat and some minor seam separation at the top of
the rear seats. There are specific photos of the areas below
and as one can see in the photos these are minor flaws that
are not easily visible. The carpet is in decent condition with no
major stains. The original dash is in good
condition with no fading or sun damage. There is one small
hairline crack on the passenger side and a specific photo
below. A modern
Kenwood stereo system was professionally installed. It works
well and sounds much better than the factory system ever did. Brand new Lloyd firebird logo mats
were installed as well as a new shifter plate for the center
console. All of the interior lights and gauges work as they should
outside of the clock and oil pressure gauge. The original
door panels look great with no cracks or splits, and both
door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner is in great
condition with no sagging, warping or tears. This car has not been smoked
in; there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever. GM
interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the
nice condition of this largely original interior is a
testament to the care this car has received throughout its
The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the
This Trans Am is
in great mechanical condition with only 24,290 original miles on
the numbers matching engine. 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. Even the AC
system works as it should, blows cold, and was upgraded to
R134. There is no smoke when starting
or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well,
and runs great. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one
side or the other. 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 and wipers. Both turn signals work fine, but the
stalk does not click into place so you have to hold it down.
This is a very minor issue, but in our attempt to be as thorough
we must disclose it. This Trans Am has lots of power and
handles well. 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 driver condition. It is a great value, a
beautiful color combination, 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.
The Ohio title states the very low mileage as "Actual"
and the previous owner also believed the mileage to be
original, but we have no additional documentation to
verify the mileage. "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
