1979 Pontiac Trans Am V8 4 speed1979 Pontiac Trans Am 4 spd w/ AC
If you are looking for a Trans Am to buy as a driver or to restore
Look no further. Here is a list of reasons this is the car everyone on
Ebay will want (and the same reasons I hate to sell)
Out of thousands of Trans Ams built in 79 only 1590 where built
with this drivetrain - 301 V8 4v w/ a factory 4 spd.
Red w/ Gold accents is probably the 2nd most popular color to own.
(Black and Gold is usually #1) But in my opinion, ed is # 1
This is a 1 owner car special ordered early 1979 here in Tucson at
Quebedaux Pontiac (which is still in business in the same spot)
The cars never been modde, aced or hot rodded. Its been adult
driven its whole life.
There is zero bondo or rust on the body or floors (except surface maybe)
thanks to the Az climate, eah its just how cars here survive.
In the pics youll see whats left of the original paint, hich in a few places
is down to the original primer and plastic in a few areas.
Original matching #s drivetrain from motor to rearend. A shade under
104K original miles - AZ Box A title.
Factory Options like A/C PS and more...
No T Tops which is a Plus knowing the car is more solid and
less chance of water damage now or down the road.
Why buy a rust bucket when you can have a SOLID car like we are selling.
Personally if I kept it, d detail the engine compartment
put back on the factory style exhaust tips, ake sure
it was mechanically in good shape, nd redo most of the
interior and drive it as like that !! Keep it as original as possible
down to the paint.
In the glove box is still the VEHICLE DELIVERY RECEIPT - EXCEPTION REPORT
Dated 4-5-79 . Chances are the original Broadcast sheet is still somewhere
IN the car ( I may try to find it this week) which is fun to do when its 108
degrees outside :)
HOPE YOU LIKE PICTURES, ecause below we have about 150 to show you !
Why buy from us ? Our feedback speaks for itself and we have some of the very
BEST REPRESENTED vehicles on ebay !! by that I mean we post over 100 pics of
the vehicle. Inside, utside, nde, verywhere !! Ive yet to see anyone else on
ebay put up detailed pics like ours. We dont have alot of fine print blah blah.
Just the important stuff buyers are looking for.
VERY DESIRABLE 1979 Trans Am - stock original sheetmetal
BUY 1 of our AZ vehicles and spend less time
repairing rust for weeks on end, nd keep more of the original sheetmetal
making your project worth more in the end and spending less money in the end.
OUR 100% feedback speaks for itself - PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR FEEDBACK !!
and many of our feedback are from about 15 cars we sold just this past
year here on EBay. We put more time and effort into our ads making it much
easier for the potential buyers to bid with confidence.
NOT MANY OF THESE trucks left with original sheetmetal still like this one.
UN RESTORED SURVIVOR. Our auctions clearly show the most detail of what to expect
Over any other auctions Ive seen online. Buy with confidence !!
EXTERIOR: you are looking at whats left of the original Red enamel paint
from 1979. Az has been hard on the paint like most cars around here but its
still beats rust holes and bubbles in places you cant see. The cars body was
immaculate up until about a yr ago when the original owner let his son drive
the car once and he somehow dented the RR quarter panel. That was the 1
and only time Jr got to drive the car. I good body person can repair the metal
with minimal bondo if someone decided to repaint the car again.
Dr side door outter door handle broken as usually seen on these cars
and the dr side door hinges showing some wear. Pass side it great.
All the factory spoilers / flares etc there and accounted for.
Hood functions properly as does the release.
The factory A/C blows but not cold, ut it looks to be all there.
DRIVETRAIN: people dont buy these cars because they are fast or supercars
I find it funny when you see these cars with all the add on crap from the 80s
like headers, ntakes, nd things like that. Most people who buy these cars want
something as close to the way it came off the showroom as possible, nd with
this car, ts about as close as you can get compared to most of the junk Ive seen
out there for sale. Ive even seen so called "restored" cars with a bunch of useless
bolt on crap on their cars who want crazy money for their cars. ITS MUCH MORE
RARE TO FIND A SURVIVOR or RESTORED back to Factory condition Trans Am these
days, aking this car in my opinion worth much more then others Ive seen for sale.
The Motor, ransmission, earend all on this car are the ones that came with
the car when it left the factory. Factory shaker, hifter, uadrajet, missions
stuff from back in the day looks all to be intact. The car even has the factory
15x7 Snowflakes (w/ gold accents) and compact spare are still on / in the car too.
The car JUST PASSED ARIZONA Emissions for new tags last month !! I drove the
car home at nite in the rain and it was uneventful. But it does need wiper blades.
Not sure when the last time the car was tuned up or timing checked, ut I feel
the power is down a little. Chances are with just some basic tune up stuff and
timing advanced some, t would add some grunt to the car. As it the car runs
and drives fine around town or on the hwy. A little more hp couldnt hurt esp
if it can be done without ruining the originality of the car.
The exhaust from the manifolds back look to be all original too or in great
shape, xcept for the rear muffler and tailpipes have been changed. They
need to be put back to factory.
INTERIOR: old, riginal showing its age alot. This is probably the most worn
part of the car from the Az sun and heat. Cracked dash of course and 90% of
the plastic panels are just crumbling they are so brittle. Carpet is worn out
in spots too. Headliner and rear pkg shelf and center console lid showing their
age. Seat upholstery not as bad as you may expect. As is, ou could drive it
everyday, ut Id restore about 70% of the major stuff first and try to save
as much of the original components as possible. Glass is all good.
Old window tint should be removed soon, t would help the appearance
quite a bit.
SUSPENSION: basically bone stock suspension thats been taken care
over the years. Factory front disc brakes of course along with Front and
Rear sway bars. No clunks to report and the car actually drives down the
road fine, t drives way better then I expected. The original owner did
mention he replaced some bushings over the last few yrs in the front
end. I did notice the addition of what looks like an helper leaf on the
rear springs, o Im sure they need replaced if you are going to do a mostly
mechanical restoration on the car and probably some new shocks and

If other auctions are not showing areas under their Trans Ams

occasions we have to relist. I cant tell you how many times people
email us trying to buy a vehicle that just sold on ebay because they
got outbid in the end, ust to find out the car is definitely sold
and no longer available. I suggest to avoid this happening to you,
put up a higher proxy bid before it ends so you can win the vehicle !!
We rarely have to relist of put out 2nd chance offers.
Our prices are usually much lower then most dreamers out there
too trying to sell cars online.

Also, f you buy a car thats been "restored", ho knows what sort
of surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating.
People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are
fast, or a quick buck and quality suffers.

exactly what you have in the end.

Doing restoration on this type of project is less labor
intensive which means overall cost is less too !
