1979 Pontiac Trans Am Description

The popularity of "Smokey and the Bandit" meant everyone was trying to get their hands on a black-on-black T/A. So it's great to find a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am that has all the features you love, right down to an A/C interior. Then you see the price, and you realize how great of a deal this one is.This one nails the Bandit look in every way that matters. Better still, it's a factory black car, so there was no color change needed to make it look right. You can tell there was plenty of time and money invested in a professional respray so that the modern clearcoat helps it earn its Starlight Black name. And of course, the gold detail package really makes this coupe standout. Everything you want is in place, so the "screaming chicken" on the hood is so bold that it's to be feared, and all the lettering on every side is crisp and clear against the midnight paintjob. And matching this gold accent package are the iconic snowflake 15-inch alloys."Black is beautiful," is the first thing Burt Reynolds said when he saw his Trans Am in the Bandit sequel, and this interior follows that line perfectly. The high back vinyl bucket seats look factory fresh, and new padding means they provide the kind of all day comfort that would keep you happy bootlegging beer all across the South. The carpets, door panels, center console, and every other key dark piece of this car have not lost its luster. But this Trans Am doesn't just feel like midnight inside. Just like the exterior trim, there are plenty of bright spots. The driver gets to sit behind factory the sports steering wheel with the silver three-spoke design. And beyond that is the machined aluminum dash that came on these upper class Trans Ams. You'll notice this has all the right gauges, right down to the clock/tach combo. It's a loaded car with all of the right factory features such as power windows and cruise control. And its also been upgraded in the right places like the AM/FM/cassette stereo and R134a air conditioning. So it's a total package interior restored and upgraded to keep you feeling good over the long haul. The 403 cubic-inch V8 has an authentic appearance right down to the factory shaker hood that sits on top of the four-barrel carburetor. 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 great muscle car sounds out of the dual exhaust, and it moves the car with authority. The Trans Am has a reputation for not only being quick, but also as one of the best all-around handling sports cars of its day. You'll see in included build sheet that this one comes with some great features, including the Positraction rear end and front & rear stabilizer bars. Plus, this one has long-haul comfort, thanks to a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.Take some time going over the aforementioned build sheet. It will show you a California car that was ordered with all the right features, and better still, all the ones you love remain on this coupe today. That's why we know a nicely priced and well-presented Trans Am like this is a hot commodity. Call today!!!
