1979 Pontiac Trans Am
Up for auction is a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am with a 4.9 litre engine (matching numbers) and a 3 speed 350 turbo hydromatic transmission. I bought this car in February of this year in Atlantic City and set out to create an everyday driver. Since then I have completed the following:
Tuned up the engine, plugs, wires, filters, etc. & a compression test has been performed.
New rear axles and bearings including the carrier bearings
New tires, new brakes, new headlights
The transmission has been pulled out and gone over, new filter & kickdown cable
new stereo & speakers
All new Phoenix Graphix decals
Replaced the trunk lock
New leather storage bags for the t-tops
New shifter plate and rear view mirror
This car was an original AC car but the prior owner took out the compressor and accumulator. All of the other AC components are still in place.
There is some surface rust bubbling up on the front drivers fender (see pics). The passenger rear bumper is a bit misaligned as well, although barely noticeable I feel better disclosing this fact up front.
When I bought the car at auction the company said there was a discrepancy with the odometer reading. Although the title states 144,731 miles I truly believe that what it shows on the odometer, 44,000 is the true mileage. I have no way of proving that as the State of NJ will always list an older car as exceeding the mechanical limits once the odometer “flips”.
This car runs, and drives great, will make a super everyday driver as I had originally intended. I have more money invested in this car than I care to disclose. To the best of my knowledge this is a numbers matching car.
I have several projects going right now so this one is on the block. These cars are becoming harder and harder to find unmolested so it would also make a nice investment. The car can be seen in the Morris County, NJ area anytime before the auction ends. I am a very fair seller and have tried to represent the car to the best of my ability. If you have any questions please ask prior to bidding. I can and will assist any out of state buyers with transportation logistics but the cost of shipping is the buyers responsibility
Car is listed locally for sale so I reserve the right to end the auction early.
