Pontiac seemed to be the last American automaker to get the news that the horsepower wars were over. This real-deal Code Y84 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Special Edition is proof enough. Still packing the same numbers matching Pontiac 403 cubic inch V8 that made the 2nd generation Trans Ams so unique, it's wrapped in a highly desirable Starlight Black and Gold decal exterior package made famous on the big screen by Burt Reynolds a couple of years prior. And with T-tops, a black bucket seat interior, and options like power steering and brakes, it checks off all the boxes. Today, these T/As are skyrocketing in value, no doubt driven by nostalgia as buyers finally find the disposable income to buy the cars of their childhood dreams.

This particular Poncho is a lovely Code 19 Starlight Black example that combines strong originality with restored components to deliver a lot of car for the money. The bodywork is straight, which is critical in a black car, and gaps are excellent and even all around with doors that fit flush. Even the deck lid spoiler works well, something that was hard to get right even when the cars were new. Restored in 2008, the paint still looks very fresh today, with a deep luster and bright shine that comes to life underneath our studio lights. It's not a perfect paint job, and there are some minor imperfections and blemishes, but nothing too noticeable, and the vast majority of these minor demerits could be remedied with a buff-and-wax. Love it or hate it, the gold firebird decal on the hood was the car's defining styling element, and the impact of that 'Screaming Fire Chicken' is undoubtedly still felt when this black beauty is cruising down the boulevard. The entire decal package was applied throughout the car, and it was laid down the right way, breaking up the black paint and adding to the overall stunning curb appeal of this T-Top coupe. If you've been waiting your whole life to own one of these icons, this is a great choice.

Code 19N Black Vinyl was the interior of choice with your all-black Trans Am (unless you wanted Code 62 Camel just like the 'Smokey and the Bandit' car), and it looks incredible in this car. The sporty, high-back bucket seats are supple and comfortable, and there are no splits or tears anywhere in the interior. And they're all-day relaxed and ready for long-haul cruises. Door panels are also great, the carpets are undamaged by the sun or significant wear, and even the headliner and dash pad show incredibly well. The original Rally gauges are all fully functional. They live inside a dashboard dressed up by Pontiac's traditional engine-turned panel – gold-toned to complement the decals and striping on the exterior. Other options include the original Delco AM/FM stereo, cold factory A/C, power windows, locks, antenna, a tilt steering column, and a center console that houses the shifter for the automatic transmission below. And despite being a T-top car, the interior is mainly free of the squeaks and rattles that often plague open vehicles, and the roof panels fit pretty well. The rear seats look primarily untouched, while out back, the surprisingly spacious trunk was outfitted with black carpets that match the cabin.

In 1979, Oldsmobile's 403 cubic inch V8 was sourced for many of these T/As, and the small block under the Shaker-style hood is indeed the original, numbers-matching unit. Making a more-than-decent 185 horsepower and heroic 320 lb/ft of torque (especially for the end of the era, as this motor was indeed the last of the American muscle-car Big V8s) straight from the factory, it has plenty of pop off the line. It can cruise at highway speeds with ease. Correctly coated in Pontiac Turquoise engine paint on the block and valve covers, the engine bay is all-stock and very clean, with signs of maintenance found throughout. The TH350 3-speed shifts smoothly and delivers power up and down the throttle, spinning a heavy-duty 10-bolt rear end. Trans Ams proved that Americans were starting to discover handling in addition to simple brute horsepower, big sway bars at both ends, a tighter power steering box gear ratio, and power disc brakes, all standard on the Special Editions. With a throaty dual exhaust and chambered mufflers, nicely detailed suspension and brake components, and those gorgeous 15-inch gold snowflake wheels wrapped in 255/60/15 white-letter BFGoodrich T/A radials, this is still a car that gets respect on the streets, even almost 45 years later. Legends tend to be like that.

Documented with maintenance and build records, PHS docs, and an original window sticker, this is an incredible find. Check your price books and comps, and you'll find that this car is priced right and is a wise investment for the future. Give us a call today, and we'll be happy to tell you about it!

We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on . That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).

FEES: A documentation fee of $299 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.

AVAILABILITY: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel offers/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.

CONTACT: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning buyer, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.

INSPECTION: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.

PAYMENT: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing.

SHIPPING: We have access to a network of private and commercial carriers. Most of them can deliver the vehicle to your driveway and upon your schedule. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.

DRIVE IT HOME: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility.

DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.

VIN VERIFICATION: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.

MILEAGES: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase. CONDITION: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.
