This well-documented, 2-Owner, and meticulously cared for 10th Anniversary 79 Trans Am is an amazing numbers matching rust free Colorado car. It is powered by a 400 V8, W72 performance package, and 4-speed manual transmission. Ordered with every option Pontiac offered, including air conditioning, rear window defrost, mirrored T-tops, red tinted gauges, intermittent wipers, deluxe true leather special embroidered seats, power windows & locks, power antenna, power trunk release, tilt steering column, power steering, and the WS6 option that included 4-wheel power disc brakes for the first time on a Trans AM. The Factory 15x8 deep dish turbo styled wheels look great. This Trans Am drives out as good as it looks.

It is one of only 1,817 to receive the Pontiac W72 400 rated at 220hp. It is the first year the Trans AM window sticker would eclipse $10,000. On the heels of the Smokey & the Bandit phenomena and the success GM experienced with the 1978 Special Edition Corvette, Pontiac decided to celebrate the first decade of the Trans AM with a 10th Anniversary Edition. If that wasn't enough, this car also was the Pace Car used to lead 1979 Daytona 500, the first NASCAR race televised in its entirety, which Richard Petty won. It was also announced that this would be the last year the Pontiac 400ci Engine. Dealers were quick to mark up these cars as much as 100%, an additional $10,000, as collectors scrambled to acquire one. So there is no shortage of reasons to consider purchasing a Special Anniversary Edition Trans AM.
