For Sale: 1979 Pontiac Firebird in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Some people wanted to play Smokey and the Bandit when buying a black Pontiac in the late 1970s. But this is your chance to own something more than the movie star car in this 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Restomod. You'll find upgraded details everywhere from the A/C interior to the wheels. And the heart is now a modern 6.0-liter fuel-injected V8.

We could continue to make movie references about a black Trans Am with gold trim, but the simple fact is that these were so cool looking that they were destined to be legendary even without Hollywood. Never designed to be a subtle machine, the deep Starlight Black is the perfect outlaw hue. This is the factory-correct color, and it was updated later in life. It has an ideal style today where it has a glossy finish, but nothing too fancy to keep you from enjoying this restomod to the fullest. And a modern clearcoat application like this will always look awesome after a professional detailing. The iconic shaker hood, color-matched Endura front end, full front body kit, full-width rear spoiler are all part of what makes this an iconic sports coupe. And speaking of hallmarks, we know you love having that golden hood bird front and center. Plus, when you look at this coupe's lowered stance and large Centerline wheels with 17/18 inch front/rear stagger, you know it's something extra special.

The interior is a great mix of originality and upgrades all done in a deep, dark black to match the exterior. If you've looked at other second-generation T/As, you know those front seats are quite different. These are buckets borrowed from a fourth-generation Firebird. So you get to keep the correct lineage, but now the seats are done in supple leather and have much more modern bolstering for better all-day comfort. It also has good fundamentals with newer carpeting, a smooth dash pad, an armrest center console, and an excellent headliner. This has great features like R134a air conditioning, power windows, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with a USB input for the best modern music in this classic. It's the kind of setup that's built to be enjoyed. That's why it's easy to get comfortable with the classic three-spoke sports steering wheel, tilt steering column, auxiliary readouts, and full gauges package set in the cool machine-turned panel.

You're going to love lifting the hood wherever you park. Because while you have the classic shaker, what's underneath is a very modern powerhouse. This is a fuel-injected 6.0-liter LS2 V8 added within the last few years. Not only is this a clean installation, but it also has the best supporting components. This includes a serpentine belt system, MSD coil, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. It makes for a strong and powerful total package. And you'll love the autorotative rumble this makes as long tube headers feed into a Flowmaster dual exhaust. The upgraded 4L65E four-speed automatic transmission engineered to handle the power of an LS motor, and this one even is believed to have a 3000 stall. Plus, the overdrive is always welcomed on a cruise-in night. The Trans Am was known to be one of the best handling cars of its time, so this one knows how to go around corners. This is enhanced by thick sway bars front & rear, upgraded Wilwood front disc brakes, and grippy BF Goodrich gForce performance tires.

Complete with the factory buildsheet, this is one fire-breathing screaming chicken that has the performance to live up to its aggressive movie star looks. A complete package like this is always an attractive buy, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
