800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is not only a low-mileage V8 classic sports car, but it also has the kind of story we all look for. So dig into the details on this well-preserved T/A.
This coupe came from the Joe Alcoke collection: a local car dealer. So you know when they sell them, they usually take the cream of the crop for themselves. Plus, when the owner has a whole service department at his disposal, you can get a well-preserved example like this one. The Platinum Poly paint is believed to be original. It has the well-aged look of a 40-year-old application, but since this has also averaged barely over 1,000 miles annually, the silver still has a nice gloss in the sunshine. So it has a true survivor-quality look. More than just wearing its history, you'll want this because these Trans Ams had one of the most aggressive looks of the time. The body kit includes a chin spoiler, wide fender flares, and a full-with rear spoiler. Plus, there's a shaker hood, fender vents, and those iconic snowflake wheels. The sliver cars got a great T/A appearance package that used black and red to make the badging and the hallmark hood bird so distinguished.
The red accents on the outside are also a nice coordination for the full red interior. The condition inside shows more signs of a well-respected classic. Nice door panels, plush carpeting, and seats that are complete right down to the button-top presentation. The grippy sports steering wheel and machine-turned dash panel instantly remind you this is a true sports car. But it's also a loaded classic. The armrest center console, and factory AM/FM stereo make it a comfortable cruiser, too.
The preservation continues under the hood with the original numbers-matching 6.6-liter V8. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, these sizable motors are great for torque. So you'll be the first off the stoplight any time you want. But we bet that's not the full reason you want this T/A. You'll love showing off its originality everywhere, and it has the features that make it easy to drive anywhere. With power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, limited-slip rear end, sway bars front & rear, and power brakes w/discs up front, it'll be easy to add to the low mileage odometer.
A well-preserved car of pedigree: that's why you get with this classic T/A. So don't miss your chance. Call now!
