Vehicle Description

1979 Pontiac Trans Am 10th Anniversary Edition

To commemorate the Ten-year anniversary of the first Trans Am that rolled off the line in 1969, Pontiac decided to offer its first Special Anniversary Trans Am.  Only 7500 of these beautiful Special Edition automobiles were ever produced by the factory.  Only 5683 were produced with the 6.6L (403 CI) engine mated to an automatic transmission.

Please view the pics to see the great condition of this 40-year-old American Icon survivor.

This Trans Am has a solid body and turns heads everywhere!  It has the famous Pontiac “Shaker Hood Scoop”.  The largest bird decal every used by Pontiac on Trans Am; so big it ran over onto the fenders!

All 403 cubic inches of this motor and a solid shifting TH350 Automatic Transmission send gobs of power and torque to a Posi-Traction Rear end.  With a harmonious rumbling exhaust, everyone will hear you coming in this Classic!!  It’s pure Pontiac Muscle waiting just for You!


Decoding the VIN:

The second digit is X which verifies that the Poncho is a 10th Anniversary Edition Trans AM

The 5th digit is K which signifies that it is a 6.6 litre, 403ci engine

The 7th digit is L which means the Trans Am was built at the California Van Nuys plant.
