The Pontiac Trans Am production began in 1969 and only a few hundred were sold that year. As the years progressed, the muscle car era and the days of the high-horsepower engine greatly digressed. Emission regulations, increase in oil prices, and increases in safety policy brought this glorious era to its knees. During this time, the popularity of the Trans Am steadily increased, thanks in-part to its relatively powerful engine, good handling, and styling.
The 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am received dramatic front-and-rear facelifts. That included a no-grille appearance in an elongated nose, flanked by inset quad rectangular headlamps. A urethane casting held the recessed head-lamps, with horizontal louvers below. At the rear lurked a full-width taillamp, which seemed to disappear in daylight. Front and rear spoilers were installed, and wider fender skirts could encompass fatter tires.
This 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is finished in Red. It has the Iconic Firebird hood decal, chrome exhaust splitters, and “snowflake” aluminium wheels in exceptional condition. It is powered by a 4.9L, V8 engine. The transmission is a Four-speed manual transmission. This example comes equipped with Power Steering, Power Windows and Radio. The Matching Red cloth interior is in great condition and shows extremely well. Overall this is a solid example in great condition both mechanical and cosmetic!
