Overall Condition: Oh the beauty of theGen 2 Trans Ams!!!

And a Great Investment As Well!!!

If you know these cars in high-end original low mile condition, you know these are hot and hard to find…especially a Low Mile 10th Anniversary 4-Speed, with these options and in super condition. This 79’ looks great up close as well as 10 foot off!

This was a Tennessee car when I found it with the previous owner picking it up 22 years ago…You can find many Gen 2’s for sale but few present the level of clarity this car demonstrates. Even fewer have the same option package and actually offer the reliability of “drive it anywhere” if you want. I have made the hard decision to let it go… so now with motivation to sell, have priced it aggressively and accordingly.

The car is a pleasure to drive and running through the gears with the sound of the new exhaust can only freeze smiles on faces. What else can I say, It all works including but not limited to lights, dash cluster, courtesy and signal / brake lights, speedometer, tachometer, horn, wipers, 8 Track Radio, gauges and heater / defroster (Front & Rear), Ice Cold Air, Choke, etc…. This is the Real Deal! This car had every option available on a 4-Speed 10th Anniversary… the only option you could not get was cruise control.

Is this car perfect…no and none of them are! The A/C Heater Fan does not work on the highest speed… the lower 3 speeds work perfect. The car presents itself extremely well and looks like you what you would expect a 48k mile car to look like. There is a small paint chip on the front bumper and a small blemish on the rear bumper. The power antenna does not go up and down automatically. I just installed a new battery and a new A/C Compressor… it has now been converted to R134.

I reserve the right to end this auction early due to having it for sale locally... I am pricing this car to sell and don’t think this car will last long so do not hesitate to bid and please do so with absolute confidence! Please have finances in order prior to bidding as well. Purely as a hobby, I have been blessed to sell cars to buyers all over the country and internationally and take tremendous efforts in keeping a 100% feedback…that said, I have tried to be honest and accurate in all descriptions. I encourage however all to inspect this car if possible prior to bidding so that you can confirm my notes above or contact me with any questions at or (865) 384-6017.

Note: I have a clear Tennessee Title in my name.

If you are the winning bidder, please expect to send a $2,500 deposit within 72 hours and have plans to pick the car up within 7 days. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer but I can assist with local direct carriers with both enclosed and open hauling available. If you have less than a positive 2 feedback, please contact me before bidding.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my car and GOOD LUCK!
