19790000 Pontiac Trans Am

1979 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 SE

One of only 1107 Z-code 400ci 4-speed T-Top Y84 examples built! Optioned with rare factory Air conditioning power windows WS6 Performance Package tilt column and more! Very desirable factory Black over Black color combination! Sweet investment!

Some would argue that the Trans Am era came to an end in 1979 the last year the big motors were available. The high horsepower output of the Pontiac 400ci or the impressive torque of the Oldsmobile 403 would both be off the menu come 1980. This makes the 1979 Pontiac Trans Am a very prominent car to consider in any sports car collection!

Offered here is a Van Nuys California built 1979 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 Y84 finished in factory correct Starlight Black (19L19U) over code correct Black Lombardy II & Hobnail Cloth interior (19B). a date-code correct WH Z-Code L78 6.6L 400ci V8 with original Rochester date-code correct 4bbl carburetor (stamped 17059263) producing a factory estimated 220 horsepower and strong 320 lb. ft. of torque Borg Warner T10 4-speed manual transmission (dated 10/23/78) and PP-code 3.23 Safe-T-Track rear axle ratio! Factory options include highly sought-after WS6 Special Performance Package providing 4-wheel disc brakes 15×8” dished snowflake alloy wheels larger sway bars and stiffer springs! Additional factory options per PHS include Y84 Special Edition package factory air conditioning heavy duty battery removable glass T-top roof panels power windows tilt steering column remote control deck lid release additional acoustical insulation electric rear window defroster day/night mirror lamp group dome reading lamp RH visor vanity mirror controlled cycle windshield wipers custom velour trim group and updated JVC KD-AR555 radio!

According to PHS documentation the car was delivered new to Miller Pontiac Inc at 3535 South State Street in Salt Lake City Utah with an MSRP of $9969.55 and invoice of $8048.28. The previous Missouri owner commissioned the restoration in 2013 and it was a very thorough frame-off job! A fresh coat of Starlight Black paint was laid which perfectly complements the laser straight body. We have many receipts including: body mounts rear leaf springs new zinc-plated fuel tank and straps tires carb rebuild recored radiator with new thermostat and hoses new alternator new freeze plugs new oil pump resurfaced flywheel new fan clutch new water pump motor and transmission mounts rebuilt HEI ignition all-new weather stripping new fuel pump with stainless steel lines wheel bearings rebuilt AC system engine harness added sound deadening new tinted glass all around (original T-Top glass) accessory floor mats Centerforce dual friction 11” clutch with throwout bearing stainless steel brakes and e-brake hardware/lines master cylinder calipers booster exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers with new hangars and more! The results are absolutely astonishing and give the impression of a brand new 1979 Pontiac TA! The car starts stops runs drives accelerates brakes and turns like new. With a modern two-stage paint application the car looks arguably better than late 70s paint technology would have allowed. From every angle we are confident that no corners were cut and that the car has been restored to show level quality.

We would invite any interested parties to call with additional questions on this TA that only has 572 miles since the restoration. We look forward to hearing from you!
