Classic Car Overview

There was just something a bit meaner about the restyled 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. So when you can find one in its original color combo and numbers-matching V8, it has an instant attraction when offered at this value price. This year Trans Am has a widebody appearance thats pure aggression - the headlights are individually separated; there are large flares for each fender; and the spoiler covers the front end-to-end. White is an attractive color, especially because it makes for a nice background to let the T/A graphics package really stand out. Its done with 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. This one looks highly original and almost like a barn find. We dont have confirmation about how much of a survivor it really is, but it has the right look where most people will take a look and assume you have a highly original coupe. Thats also because some of the best details are still in place, like the shaker hood scoop, quad exhaust tips, and iconic snowflake alloy wheels. The red interior coordinates with exterior accents to give you a thoughtful style inside and out. Pontiacs Hobnail cloth pattern looks stock and distinctive on the seats, and the red is also bold on the door panels, dash, and three-spoke sports steering wheel. This keeps a very stock style, and so you have nice features like the factory air conditioning, power windows, and the Delco AM/FM radio. Even the dome light is working. Plus, youll appreciate driver-oriented features, like the armrest center console, sporty machine-turned dash, and full gauges with large speedo and tach. Under the hood is the numbers-matching 301 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. This is the one people like when youre looking for a solid drivers car. They are often referenced for their hardy construction, and this example runs and drives with the robust feeling of proper care. The motor makes for a confident driver, and its an overall easy cruiser thanks to the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs. What youre going to see as you look over this whole coupe is a fun opportunity. This is a value price for a classic T/A - especially one with the numbers-matching V8. The money left over in your budget can go to your personal tastes and updates for areas like the paint, carpeting, or turning the A/C system to R134a. But the heart of the value really comes from unleashing the strong-running V8 out on the streets and enjoying a solid classic Trans Am from day one. So dont let this opportunity pass you by.
