In just a few short years, Walter P. Chrysler took his company from an unknown automotive manufacturer to fourth in the industry. Walter Chrysler was a perfectionist with a deep mechanical background. This aspect, probably more than anything, helped to make Chrysler Corporation grow quickly.


Classic Car Overview

This 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has all the cool stuff you want in one package. It has its numbers-matching 400 V8, the control of four-on-the-floor, a bright/classic interior, T-tops, and even anniversary wheels. The look on this T/A is distinct and striking. The white paint was an upgrade later in life, and so you get the good gloss and shine that comes from a more recent and quality application. A similar fresh feeling cones form the full decal package. Its now done in fiery red and orange tones that have a bold blazing against the bright white. And its hard to argue against the appeal of the hallmark Phoenix on the hood that truly looks like its rising from flames. Clean lines, straight panels, and good details all show that this one has received the right care over the years. And youll love to spot the upgraded wheels used for the turbo and anniversary cars, which goes quite well here considering this is the Trans Ams 10th anniversary year. T-tops are always fun on these T/As, but they have an added bonus here. When you open this coupe up to the world, the red interior coordinates with exterior accents to give you a thoughtful style inside and out. Pontiacs Hobnail cloth pattern looks terrific on the freshly done seats, and the red is also bold on the carpeting, door panels, dash, and three-spoke sports steering wheel. This keeps a very stock style, and so you have provisions for features like the factory air conditioning, power locks, and the Delco AM/FM radio (theyll need servicing to function again.) Plus, youll appreciate driver-oriented features, like the tilt steering column, armrest center console, electric rear defogger, power steering, and power windows. Under the hood is the numbers-matching 6.6-liter V8. Its great to have this original powerhouse here because this was the last year for the big Pontiac V8s. They wanted to keep this one looking stock. So while youre paying attention to the cool hood shaker, you may not pick up on how theres now an Edelbrock intake that was painted in Pontiac blue to match the motor. The 6.6 was only available with a four-speed manual this year, and so you get the best motor and the best control. Speaking of control, this T/A has the WS6 option so it also has sway bars front & rear and four-wheel power disc brakes. Sharp, coordinated, sporty, powerful, and historically significant - this is the Trans Am that checks all the right boxes. So dont miss this deal. Call today!!!
