For Sale: 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1979 Pontiac Trans Am - as Jerry Reed said, 'Honey hush!' Pontiac 400 - Automatic. Paint and Interior are mostly original - original Bird and graphics. I'll stop short of calling this a Survivor though, since the drivetrain has been refurbished. Started life with the anemic, Pontiac 4.9 liter V8 - which may help explain it's original condition since nobody was out racing it. The third owner replaced it with a fresh, mildly performance enhanced 400 Pontiac in 2015, approximately 5k miles ago. Has the 6X heads, mild Comp Cam, Holley 650 carb. Also done at that time were ASA Performance 2.5' stainless steel exhaust system. Bilstein Shocks, fuel tank, New Classic Auto air conditioning system, blows very hard and cold, much better than these did new. Has the Retro-sound stereo system with a 800 amp Blaupunkt amp in back and USB aux jack. B&M Dual Gate Shifter, feels great and slants a little to the left for attitude. Matching Cooper Cobra white letter tires from NTB. Sill has the Space Saver spare tire with the inflation canister. Shows 84k miles- no reason not to believe that, but the title is mileage exempt due to age. Runs and handles excellent - drive anywhere. No squeaking or rattles inside. Has without a doubt, always been garage kept. The doors do not drop at all! - open/close with one finger. No cracks in the dash or armrests. Small cracks in the original driver's seat bottom - see pics. Car started life in Lonacoring Maryland, according to the original papers. Was rustproofed up there by Ziebart - note the yellow plugs in the door jams. Apparently not driven in the winters, has no rust. I have more undercarriage pictures on my website. The very bottom of the left quarter panel behind the wheel looks to have been sprayed over 20+ years ago, no rust through as easily seen from inside the trunk. A very good body shop could probably color sand and correct the finish if desired. Hard to notice in my opinion, unless you are looking for it.
