1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6
Some people wanted to play Smokey and the Bandit when buying a black Pontiac T/A. But this is your chance to own something above movie star quality with this 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. Because as you look at the buildsheet, you'll see all the right desirable features from four-speed manual transmission to the WS6 suspension package.
We could continue to make movie references about a black Trans Am with gold trim, but the simple fact is that these were so cool looking that they were destined to be legendary even without Hollywood. Never designed to be a subtle machine, the deep Starlight Black is the perfect outlaw color, especially with the quality respray on this example. The chin spoiler and Endura front bumper don't show any evidence of run-ins with steep driveways or parking curbs, making this an attraction that can hold its head high at car shows. But what really makes this one grab attention is all the gold that's on everything from under the full-width rear spoiler to the iconic "snowflake" alloys that instantly identify the best Pontiacs of the era. And of course, no one can escape the bold and iconic "hood bird" that's front and center.
Inside, the factory-correct black means this T/A was a full midnight package from day one. The bucket seats are high-backed and well bolstered for an exceptionally nice feeling. Plus, the AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input and modern speakers means you can hook up the most modern music players with clear sound. So it's a vintage ride that doesn't leave your favorite road trip tunes at home. Plus, there are other great features like power windows and power locks. But more than just amenities, this is a driver's car at its heart. It has the grippy three-spoke steering wheel that's uniquely Pontiac, and beyond that is the cool machined aluminum dash. Plus, one feature that's seen on a lot of these Trans Ams, but is thankfully missing on this one, is the popular automatic transmission option. That's right...even the Bandit didn't get the kind of powerband control that you have in this four-speed manual coupe.
With 400 cubic-inches under the hood, you'll find very few people willing to call the big V8's block color "baby" blue. This has been dressed up for both show and performance with the chrome valve covers, chrome alternator, and a heavy breathing four-barrel carburetor living under that hood scoop. The full force of this sounds amazing as it leaves the dual exhaust. But what really is going to make you fall in love/lust with this one is the special is the WS6 handling package. It includes front & rear sway bars, a 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. Today this one still can compete thanks to modern Cooper Cobra GT rubber. And if all you do is want to cruise this slick black T/A, the power steering and cruise control make it an easy anytime choice.
The sale comes with the original factory buildsheet and maintenance records. So when movie star looks meets true performance, you know you're viewing at terrific classic. Don't miss out, call today!
