Vehicle Description

1979 Pontiac TA, Original TA, Factory 4 Speed, Numbers Matching, Original Paint !!!



Cincy Classic Cars is proud to offer this rare Factory 4 Speed Trans Am with its numbers matching Pontiac 301 engine with low actual miles of 64,795.  About 1500 1979 Trans Am's were produced with factory 4 speed and 301 Pontiac engine with hardtop.  This car is very special because it still retains its numbers matching original Pontiac 301 engine and 4 speed manual transmission with matching vin stamps.  This TA features believed to be original paint with original decals, an original Camel Tan vinyl interior, and the numbers matching 301 Pontiac engine and numbers matching 4 speed manual transmission.  This TA is very solid with great lines and gaps.  There is no visible rust on the body or underside of this car, and this TA was rust proofed when new and the letter stating that comes with the car.  This TA is finished in the beautiful and most undesirable color combination of Black (code 19) over Camel Tan vinyl interior code(62R).  This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag and PHS docs pictured above.   The Miles are stated as "Actual" on the title.  


The Black exterior is in really nice original condition.  This TA is believed to have original paint with original decals, emblems and moldings.  The paint is in great condition for its age and still shows nicely.  Both bumpers are in great shape and the nose emblem and front bumper grills are in great condition.  There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but noting was intentionally excluded from the photos.  Tires have great tread left and are correctly sized 225/760/15 and the 15x7 Rally II wheels are OEM originals and are in great shape with no curb rash and the center caps and trim rings are in excellent shape.  All weather stripping, window sweeps, door seals, and trunk seal are good shape.  The trunk is solid and very clean with the original space saver spare and jack and hosts its original trunk mat.  The underside of this TA is outstanding and extremely solid and rust free.  It was undercoated at some point and shows no rust or corrosion and no patch panels.  


The Tan vinyl interior of this Formula is in original great overall condition.  The seat covers are original and in good shape and are comfortable and the seat foam is very supportive.  The carpet is original and shows its age under the drivers floor mat but overall its in decent shape.  The original dash is in excellent condition with no cracks or warping or fading.  The dash bezel is in great condition too.  The original door panels are in good working condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact.  The headliner is in good condition and the package tray is original and in good shape too.  The stereo was changed to a CD player with new speakers and sounds and works great.  All interior lights and gauges work as they should but the tach is intermittent and moves but it not always accurate.  The horn, stereo, wipers, and blower motor on all speeds all work.  Even the cigarette lighter works which is rarely the case.


This TA is in good mechanical condition and most importantly the original numbers matching Pontiac 301 engine and transmission are still in the car, see vin stamp photos of both above.  This TA runs and drives well, it rides tight, drives strait down the road, does not run hot, and drives good.  The engine bay still shows a lot of originality and is mostly stock in appearance.  The factory air induction parts are still in place and the flex hose appears original and in excellent shape which is never the case.  The brakes work as they should with no pulling from side to side.  The exhaust has been upgraded with a Dynomax muffler and has a good exhaust note at idle and cruising speeds, the factory catalytic converter is still in place.  Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos.  This is a factory NON AC car which really cleans up the engine bay area and adds to performance.  This TA has been loved and meticulously cared for by its previous owners and has been garaged most of its life and shows well.  The outstanding original condition of this TA and the way it drives is a true testament to the prior owners care and love for this special car.  This TA is truly the one to have being a low production car with the factory 4 speed manual transmission.  Very few of these cars were made and very few are still original and very few are in factory black paint.  Great car at a very affordable price.
