There is a wealth of original documentation that comes with this Trans Am. Most importantly to verify all of the highly sought-after and rare options, the original build sheet is include with the car and pictured below. Thankfully the previous owners were very diligent with maintenance and kept very detailed records. Included with the car and pictured below is an extensive maintenance log starting in October of 1980. Also included is a receipt for $3,158.18 for a complete engine rebuild and a receipt for $1,095.45 for a transmission rebuild. The original owners manual, is also still with the car. 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, 139222, 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 "29L139222" and "2" indicates the Pontiac division of GM, the "9" is the model year, 1979, and the "L" is the plant where the car was produced, Van Nuys, CA. The paint and interior trim codes are also correct for this color combination and pictured below on the trim tag. This Trans Am rolled off the assemble line during the fourth week of December in 1978 (12D). The transmission is also correct and original as well with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the case and pictured below. The transmission date code is also pictured below, 9P19N. The "9" is the model year, 1979. The "P" indicates the month, the "19" is the day of the month, and the "N" is the shift so the transmission was made on September 19, 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.
