719-339-4178 1979 Pontiac Trans AM. This is the one. Bought by my Grandfather, passed down to my Uncle, then to me. My grandfather retired from Cadillac and my Uncle from GM/Pontiac. She has been garaged her entire life and drivin just enough. She currently has 53,256k original miles. Everything on this car is original, with the exception of the cd player which is mounted in the console, to preserve the original radio. She has an original gorgeous Silver lacquer paint job which looks absolutely amazing, especially when you consider her age. Her Body is breathtakingly straight, with positively no accidents and nothing misaligned on her at all. Her undercarriage is flawless, with no rust. This car is a true beauty and a very rare survivor. Everything works as it did when it drove off the factory line.The AC works and so does the heat. She is powered by a olds 403, which just purrs and runs perfect. Just hearing her fire up should tell you everything you need to know, to the trained ear.The engine has most original parts with the exception of some hoses. Even the master cylinder is original, as you can tell by the photo. Brakes are great, lights, etc... everything operates as it did in 1979. She has Red interior, which I think complements the Red Screaming Chicken and trim quite well. There are no flaws with the interior. There is a crack down the center of the original arm rest. I do have a replacement, however have not put it on yet. Other than that, its perfect from the dash, to the door panels, to the headliner, all amazingly perfect. My Uncle is just getting a little to elderly to take care of his cars so I had to buy this one from him, before it went to a cousin or someone who would do who knows what to her. That's why she's for sale. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I really do appreciate you taking the time to read.
719-339-4178 Thank you

Called my uncle to ask about the hood shaker scoop decal. He told me, they stopped making the 6.6 liter decal in 78 and only made available the TA 6.6 decal, but you had to have the W72 motor. Since this car has the 403, the shaker scoop came blank, but because my grandfather worked for GM he new the guys at the factory and asked them to throw the TA 6.6 decal on there, which they did.
