Description:

1979 Pontiac Trans Am

Up for auction is a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am ws4 Gold on Gold Project. where do I start, ar was bought 3 years ago from an owner in Connecticut who strictly garage kept the car, ar was driven daily for a year after it was bought, nd I sunk a lot of money into it, t is now being sold as a PROJECT. When the car was bought the body was rock solid including body undercarriage as well as trunk floor which is hard to come by in these east coast cars. Car is a 1979 Trans Am ws4 Gold on Gold, olor option which came that way from the factory. Over the years someone replaced the once stock 4.9 liter motor with the better 6.6 Pontiac 400, not olds), hich put out more horsepower then the olds 403. car is an automatic, riginally came with AC but the AC components are long gone as someone gutted the AC and put a delete plate instead, ew owner can gladly reinstall AC if they desire as this was originally an AC car.
Body
I bought this car originally because of the rock solid body that it came with as well as a nice shiny paint job and it was indeed garage kept. In my opinion this body is still pretty solid. Someone hit the front end while I was parked somewhere smashing the bumper and there is a small dent in the fender as the picture show, ar will need body work to fix these issues. I honestly would replace the front bumper as it was also chipping. There is a small rust spot starting on the passenger rear quarter (check Pics), ndercarriage is still SOLID, he frame rails are SOLID and the floor pans are SOLID other then minor surface rust (check pics once again), he trunk floor pan is also SOLID, hich is usually rare, ne of the reasons I bought this car in the first place. Paint still shines very well but it showing minor bubbling here and there. passenger doors is hard to open and close will probably need a striker adjustment. Glass is my opinion good all around, ear defrost works.
Wheels
Wheels are in fair shape 2 or 3 of them shine real nice one of them is pitted, hey are the better 15 x 8 snowflake wheels which at the time I believe were an option. Missing one center cap. Correct lugs are on wheels. Tires are bald and should be replaced
Interior
Interior is actually is great shape, eats have no rips carpets still looks good not much wear I think previous owner had it replaced console in good shape, eadliner intact and in good shape, oor panels have issues I would replace them, he drivers side arm rest is off the car as I was having trouble installing it. Dash is cracked there are 3 cracks going across the dash.
Gauges
speedo works although the reading is a little off, uel works, il works, emperature gauge I had working but the sending unit that connects to the block got messed up, auge is fine sending unit should be replaced (1 wire), achometer does not work neither does the clock (as always lol)
Engine
Car runs ROUGH. and like any other trans am it packs power. I took off the exhaust manifolds and replaced them with headers, he headers leak from the block, ecause when I had a mechanic change the exhaust manifolds to headers the bolts broke in the block and they had to be heli coiled to make a seal, nd of course they still leak, hich is a problem, y opinion the heads should be removed and rebuilt or replaced. The transmission fluid has a leak, believe from the speedometer cable, ower steering has a leak I believe from the steering box which was replaced brand new. cars burns a little bit of oil. long story short this car has issues, great idea would probably be to rebuild the motor or if you have one PERFECT drop it in!. transmission shifter needs to be fixed you have to hold it in the gear you want while driving it as sometimes it pops out of gear Car had a lot of brake work done to it 2 years ago I have the receipts everything in brake system is mostly new the peddle is currently a little soft, believe its just some air in the lines

Make no mistake this car is being sold as a Project for someone to restore, eep in mind that this is a 37 YEAR OLD car and is being SOLD AS IS, ried my best to honestly explain the vehicle, have vested over 3500$ in it and I have the receipts., lease do not bid if you are not serious about it, ar is PRICED TO SELL. Great for anyone looking to restore or has the time and money to put into it. I simply dont have the time to fix this car up. My LOSS is your GAIN. Still kills me to sell this car as I would have liked to fix it up. These late model trans am have been really gaining a lot of attention. Watching Barrett Jackson the other day the number one selling car was a 1979 TRANS AM silver anniversary addition sold for a whopping 187,000$ car only had about 7 miles on it. and the day before watching Barrett Jackson a 1980 sold for 100,000$ which was another low mileage car. Long story short these cars have been really taking off lately, nd they have never seem the money that they are seeing now. Am I saying this trans am is one of those absolutely NOT, ut in my opinion the investment quality is definitely there, reat for anyone who wants to get into a project, nd I believe these Trans Am's dont show any signs of slowing down. Car is registered in the state of Vermont, ermont does not issue titles for cars as old as this the registration serves as the title in that state (all clear).
