1979 Trans Am 10th Anniversary, 1 Owner, 6.6 Litre - Auto, 61k miles, AC, T-Tops

Stock Number: 1176

This 1 Owner Trans AM 10th Anniversary Edition was owned by our good friend Dennis Collins, famed owner of Collins Bros. Jeep in Wylie, TX. They went through the many mechanical systems on the car and also applied a New Paint Job at the well know Gas Monkey Garage Shop in Dallas, TX. As this was painted for their friend, Dennis Collins, GMG did a Top-Quality job and it shows. This Trans AM was built in the VanNuys, California plant and spent its entire life in Louisiana, so you know it is Rust Free. The Leather interior is in nice beautiful condition and the dash has no cracks. This is a beautifully restored car. The Engine is fully rebuilt and detailed. The AC has been serviced, updated with a New Compressor and blows cold. It shows very nice and drives out excellent. It tracks straight and true. It is full of that Pontiac Excitement.

This Trans AM Collectors Edition comes with lots of very desirable documentation. Included are the Original Window Sticker, multiple build sheets and tons of original purchase documentation. There is no overlooking the significant paperwork included with this car. It's the icing on the cake any collector is looking for when you purchase a quality car such as this.

These were the first Trans AM's to be priced with a MSRP over $10,000. These cars only came one way and that was loaded. So every available option is there. Tilt, Cruise, Power Windows, Locks and a unique one year only Interior. These are the only 2nd Gen Firebird's to get a Leather Interior. It was same Silver leather used in the 1978 Corvette Pace Car. These unique cars included the WS6 handling package and added 4 wheel disc brakes. It was the first year this was an option on a Trans AM. All of this adds up to one of the most prized Trans AM's you can own. This is a well cared for, very collectible Trans AM at a very affordable price. Be sure and consider it for your collection.
