1979 Pontiac Trans AM W72 400 - 4spd, 20,073 miles, WS6, T-Tops, True Survivor

Stock Number: 380

There are only 20,073 miles on the Trans AM. It is 1 of only 2,917 available in 1979. That is less than 3% of the production for 1979. That makes this Pontiac a real collectable. Trans AM's optioned like these are considered some of the most collectible of the late 2nd Gen TA's on the market. 1979 marked the culmination of the Best features built into one TA and also marked the end of the Big Pontiac V8's. The W72 400 was never to be seen again. The WS6 handling option received the highly desirable 4 Wheel Disc Brakes and this put the Trans AM into a new class or performance cars. With it torque and deep rumble, the 400ci Pontiac was the biggest engine of the year for GM in a Sports Car. Even the Corvette would only be offered with a 350ci V8.

This TA is a solid Survivor that we acquired from a collector on the east coast. It was well cared for and require minimal detailing and freshening up. We set out to replace what needed replacing and did this always keeping an eye on the originality of the car. We kept the paint original with just a few minor touch ups. So you will see minor flaws and patina on this TA. But this also helped keep the pure survivor look of this special Trans AM. The engine and drive-line were in excellent condition. We refinished the original Wheels and installed New BF Goodrich Radial T\A Tires. The interior is in beautiful original condition. If you want a top of the line, low mileage, collectible Trans AM that is ready to drive and enjoy, this is the one you have been waiting for.
