1979 Pontiac Firebird

If you love classic T/As, it's time to pay attention. This 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has all the best stuff you want a 400 V8 with four-barrel carburator, four-speed stick-shift, T-tops, plenty of docs, and the sought-after WS6 suspension package. So when a survivor-grade classic like this is up for grabs, you know you want to be first in line.Black Trans Ams are fun, and so if that's your style, there are others at Streetside that will be more to your liking. But if you're someone who likes to stay bold but play it a little smoother, this factory-correct Heritage Brown should be exactly why you're looking for. It's like the difference between ordering black coffee and a cappuccino. In fact, this coupe does feel exactly like a special blend with the color only being available for the Trans Am's 10th anniversary year. So while the car has been enjoyed over the years, it should make you excited when we believe much of this special color is the original paint. And what also helps grab attention is the gold trim that is on everything from inside the fender flares, to around the side scoops, to under the rear spoiler. And of course, no one can escape the clutches of the bold and iconic "hood bird" that's front and center. And this golden hue even matches the iconic snowflake wheels. Inside the camel interior is a great complementing color to the exterior because it nicely matches the exterior gold trim. And let's face it, when you have a T-top T/A like this you're going to want to keep it open to the world. Another feature to have when the T-tops are out are the cloth bucket seats. After all, you'll never be afraid to hop into this one wearing shorts. This interior feels quite original, so while there are signs of use, this should still excite survivor car fans. Plus, you'll also love how it's loaded with features like power windows, tilt wheel, electric rear defrost, provisions for air conditioning, and an upgraded Alpine AM/FM/cassette stereo w/equalizer. The driver gets to face iconic components like the Trans Am's special three-spoke steering wheel, cool machined aluminum dash, and optional Rally gauge package.Under the hood, the survivor-grade appearance continues. The 400 cubic-inch V8 has an authentic appearance right down to the factory hood shaker that everybody remembers so well. The block is still covered in factory-correct Pontiac Blue paint, and it looks like this powerplant has been treated to good regular maintenance. This motor makes such great muscle car sounds thanks to a header-fed exhaust, and with the four-speed manual, you get to make this T/A howl with delight as you enjoy the powerful V8. But what really makes this one special is the WS6 handling package. It includes a larger sway bar, tighter steering box ratio, and four-wheel disc brakes. This option made the Trans Am the favorite of most automotive magazines back in the day. And it still has great moves today thanks to Goodyear Eagle GTII rubber.All the right documents come with the sale, including the original window sticker, dealer invoice, bill of sale, warranty card, title docs, and owner's manual. That makes it a great survivor with the best material to back it up. So when that's on one of the most desirable Trans Ams around, you know you have to act fast to grab it. Call now!!
