1979 Pontiac Firebird
4 Speed Manual
Some people wanted to play Smokey and the Bandit when buying a black Pontiac in the late 1970s. But this is your chance to own something more than the movie star car in this 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. It's a genuine Special Edition car that has been expertly restored to look this fantastic and feel great â€“ right down to the A/C interior. Plus, it retains all the best original pieces, like the numbers-matching 400 V8, four-on-the-floor, WS6 suspension, and of course, T-tops. We could continue to make movie references about a black Trans Am with gold trim, but the simple fact is, 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, especially with the professional respray of this car's factory-correct color. It gives the dark paint the kind of luster that makes it look like a black mirror. More than just the paint, you are going to see quality all over this vehicle that comes from a comprehensive restoration. The factory body kit and Endura front bumper look fresh from the factory allowing this T/A to hold its head high at car shows. But what really makes this one really grab attention is all the gold trim that accents everything from the full-width rear spoiler to the iconic snowflake wheels. And because everyone expects the legendary hood bird to be the bold centerpiece, this one is as crisp as the day it left the Norwood factory. Inside is a selection of the ideal features. The T-tops are perfect for everything from displaying your T/A at car shows, to just letting everyone else notice the grin on your face when driving through town. On any hot day, the Camel tan cloth seats are the perfect pairing. With a large restoration budget, not only do the seats still look great, but so do the dash, door panels, and center console. The carpet even feels fresh! The driver gets to face iconic components like the Trans Am's special three-spoke steering wheel (w/power steering,) and the cool machined aluminum dash with the Rally gauge package. The original AM/FM/cassette stereo is still in place for period-correct fun, power windows and air conditioning. But your favorite part will be the option that's missing: the popular automatic transmission option. That's right...even the Bandit didn't get the kind of powerband control that you have with the four-speed manual. 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 is the original numbers-matching motor, and just like the rest of the car, there has been a significant investment keeping it looking factory fresh. There's a heavy breathing four-barrel carburetor living under that shaker scoop. The full force of this sounds amazing as it leaves the dual exhaust. But don't just listen to the rumble; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see nothing but fresh components that really tell you how thorough this restoration was. You'll also spot the unmissable red of all the new polyurethane bushings that keep this one feeling as solid as day one. Plus, this T/A was ordered with the special 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, and the investments in this one keeps it a tight handler today. A car this significant need the right paperwork, and so amazing documentation comes with the sale. It includes the original dealer invoice, window sticker, bill of sale, owner's manual, title documentation, and the factory buildsheet. We all love the look of these black with gold T/As but very few of us will ever have the opportunity at one this nice. Call now!
