This is one of the most valuable late 70's Trans AM's built and definitely appreciating in value. This the best '79 Trans AM you can restore in terms of finished Value when the car is completed. This model and configuration consistently out sells all other Trans AM's of this style. This is a great opportunity to pick up a project that can pay dividends in the end.

It was sold new at Marsh Pontiac in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. They only made 1,107 of these and how many can be left? This one comes with the original numbers matching Block so you can build it back to original. It has the WS6 handling package that includes 4 wheel disc brakes, offered for the first time in 1979. It is loaded with options.

There are Hundreds of Dollars of New Engine Parts. Keith Black Forged Pistons, Eagle H-Beam Rods, Timing Chain, Harmonic Balancer and More. Take some time and look at the Hi-Resolution photos and see if this is a project you would like to take on! It will certainly be a great car for someone once it is back on the road.
