For Sale: 1979 Pontiac Firebird in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Solid small block power, four-on-the-floor, upgraded audio, and a full midnight package make this 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am tribute instantly attractive. And you even get a value price on a classic that's easy to drive.

This one loves to look unique. That's why it's a '79 coupe with a '77 front end. But what people are really going to take note of is the matte black hood bird against the full blackout paint package. It's a very modern and cool way to deliver the classic style you love. And speaking of the best details, you also have the shaker-style hood scoop trim and three-piece rear spoiler. The black paint has a very comprehensive appearance, especially with most of the badging deleted. This is a driver's car, and so the glossy black isn't perfect up close, but it certainly will get you respect in-between stoplights. And while this one loves its dark side, all the black also lets polished pieces like the snowflake-style alloys and large exhaust tips really pop.

The blackout style continues inside. It has nice fun details, like Pontiac's classic hobnail cloth upholstery. You'll also appreciate newer items like the carpeting and headliner. Part of driver-quality means having a fun driver. This has the hallmark Trans Am style sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and a Hurst shifter. The machine-turned dash panel even has Dakota Digital gauges (the sale comes with the hardware to complete the install.) The stereo is a modern Kenwood AM/FM/CD unit with USB and Bluetooth, and it connects to a custom speaker system including the ones in the custom center console. And power windows make it easy to take down the glass, crank up the music, and go for a drive.

The engine bay has proper V8 power and the Pontiac valve covers, and so it looks right for this T/A tribute. The hidden secret is that this is really a Chevy small block. So that means there are also plenty of easy upgrades available. It now has go-fast goodies like a Brawler four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, and Hooker headers feeding into an H-pipe dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. The consignor even claims this has a Comp Cams camshaft and roller rockers. You'll even spot good supporting components like an aluminum radiator with electric fans and an upgraded oil pan with new gaskets. It's a powerful package, and you take full control with the four-speed manual transmission. There's also power steering, sway bars front & rear, power brakes, and upgraded drilled rotors on the front discs.

This Firebird represents opportunity. The value price leaves room in your budget to update the paint, upgrade the upholstery, restore the A/C, or other details that you may want to upgrade or personalize on this coupe. And you have the time and freedom to plan whatever future you want because on day one you have a distinctly dark T/A tribute that has a great growl and is a ton of fun to take out on the road. So you'll love the drive today and all the possibilities for tomorrow. Call now!!!
