Being offered is avery nice 1979 firebird (trans am clone) with sunroof. Hate to see her go but having a baby and transferring jobssoon. I owned the car for 18 years and has been a west Texas car for most of its life. According to previous owner the mileage was original. Currently has 67,000 miles.Was my primary driver from 2002-2006. Summer of 09 I had it transferred to me and drove it on the weekends since. A newer engine installed in 2004 and rebuilt transmission in 2007. Here is your chance to invest in one of the most sought after body styles GM ever made, and they are steadily going up in value, and getting harder to find each year. This car offers the following:
This FireBird is powered by sbc 400 30 over pistons, mild cam, edelbrock rpm intake, new 625 edelbock.The engine has no more than 15 thousand miles on it. The heads have about 500 miles on them including a full gasket replacement on the engine too. The speedometer broke a year ago. I installed a new cable but didnâ€™t work. I believe the issue has to do with the gauge. This car has long tube Headers, dual 3â€ exhaust, with flow masters dumped at the differential. The car has newer performance distributor, plugs, and wires. The car hasnewer Battery, newer alternator, and all new fluids. This Firebird also has a 4 core radiatorand dual electric fans. All suspension components, and brakes are new as well. I installed a 1.5â€ drop all the way around. Drop springs in the front and drop leaf springs in the back. Only bushings I didnâ€™t replace was the sway bar bushings. The trans is anautomatic turbo 350, with shift kit with no more than 5 thousand miles on it . Also comes with a rare slap shifter installed a month ago. The rear end is a 8.5 Posi with 273 gear. I have a spare limited slip rear with 308 gears that goes with. This car sounds awesome.
Exterioris black and gold. The paint is starting to show some age and and has a few cracks. Two spots of bondo on the driver fender 1x3â€ section and the 3x3 â€œ section on the passenger quarter panel are showing imperfections. There are a few chips showing spots of surface rust. The hood has been sliced up to fit the bs blower scoop but do have a good spare shaker hood and a fiber glass cowl hood to go with.The tires have about 3 thousand miles on them but are starting to crack on the tread.
black bucket seats that have been spray painted with upholstery paint. The passenger seat has 2 spots were the seem has separated.The door panels and carpet are new. I put a new dash cap due to it having cracks on the top. The glass is new in the front. The dash mount has broke off at the heater/ac control. Thats thatâ€™s why Its been removed in the picture. A/c has been removed. All electrical is in good working condition with the exemption of the horn. I could not get the horn to work after I swapped it with an after market steering wheel.
