Cincy Classic Cars is proud to offer this 1979 Trans Am which is in very nice overall condition with low actual miles of 45,932. This TA has had some welcomed recent service work performed like a fully rebuilt transmission, new exhaust, and a completely rebuilt rear end with new rear gears. This Trans Am features a nice repaint in Nocturne Blue, a beautiful blue deluxe cloth original interior, and the original numbers matching 403 engine, see vin stamp photo. This Trans Am is absolutely solid and has no visible rust anywhere around the car or under the car, and is very solid with great lines and gaps. The underside is in beautiful original condition with no rust anywhere or any rust repairs or corrosion issues. There has been no touch ups or spray bombing with cheap spray paint. Its believed that this TA has never had any body work done and is all original sheet metal. This Trans Am is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Nocturne Blue (code 29) over Blue deluxe cloth interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag and build sheet pictured above. The low mileage is not only validated by the amazing original condition of this TA but also by the Ohio title pictured below stating the mileage as "Actual."
The Blue exterior is in good overall restored condition. This Trans Am has had one repaint in Nocturne Blue some years ago and the paint is in very nice overall condition and there are no signs of visible rust and both bumpers are in good shape with no flaking paint. The paint has a nice gloss and great shine and is smooth to the touch.
The decals were replaced and are in great shape. There is zero rust on this TA and zero rust concerns on the body or underside of this TA. There are no rust bubbles around the body and no cracked paint from bondo. There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but noting was intentionally excluded from the photos. Tires have good tread on them and are correctly sized 225/70/15. The Rally II wheels are OEM originals and are in great shape with no curb rash with original trim rings and center caps and new lug nuts. All weather stripping is in great shape including the window sweeps. The trunk is very solid and clean with the original trunk mat. The underside of this TA has not been touched up at all or spray bombed with cheap spray paint. Its as true and honest as the rest of the car and very solid and very rust free. The sunroof was added in the 1980's and does not leak or rattle and works as it should. It allows for more headroom and natural light and needed fresh air when open. Its a nice period upgrade from back in the day.
The Blue deluxe cloth interior of this Trans Am is original and in great condition. The seat covers are factory originals and in good overall shape for their age and have no major wear or stains. The carpet is original with no major stains, rips, or holes. The original dash is in excellent condition with no cracks or fading and the dash bezel is in excellent condition as well. The Stereo has been upgraded to a AM/FM cassette player which works and sounds good and thankfully the dash has not been cut for a modern stereo. The original door panels are in great condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner is in excellent condition and not sagging at all and the original package tray is in good condition. All interior lights and gauges work as they should outside of the clock. The stereo, wipers, and blower motor all work. The horn is currently not working.
This Trans Am is in excellent mechanical condition with only 45,932 actual miles on the original 403 engine. The transmission was fully rebuilt within the last few years and a mild shift kit was added, see receipt. The rear end was completely rebuilt with a new Eaton Posi unit with 3.73 rear gears which really wakes up this TA. The exhaust has been upgraded to include new Thrush mufflers with true dual exhaust including headers. We have driven this TA numerous times on the streets and highways and it always performs very well, does not run hot, rides very tight, and is a true joy to drive. In the video one can observe this car running and driving with no excessive rattles or noises, and the car handles and performs very well. This Trans Am is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs excellent. The brakes do not pull and stop as they should. Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. This is a factory AC car and all factory components are still on the car but the system appears to need a charge to blow cold. I was told the AC did blow cold a few years ago but has since lost its freon and not blowing cold. This TA has been loved and meticulously cared for by its previous owners and some receipts come with the car. The outstanding originality of this TA and the way it drives is a true testament to prior owners care and love for this special TA.
