Vehicle description

Vehicle Details Only one CALIFORNIA Owner!•*Original Miles!•*Vin Number Matching!Every time an F2 Trans Am pops up for sale, there are inevitable musings about Smokey and the Bandit and coming of age during the 1970s. Well, this time around, we'll spare you the nostalgia and get straight to the facts. Simply put: these cars are awesome to drive, look at, and be seen in. Their value and desirability continues to rise every year. If you've ever dreamed of owning one, today is a much better time to buy than tomorrow will be. This particular example is a '79 model that pairs a 6.6 litre V8 and 3-speed automatic gearbox with factory air conditioning and all the outrageous Pontiac swagger you could ever ask for. This one owner car is showroom fresh and garage kept the last 18 years. If you're ready to cruise the boulevard in one of the most recognizable muscle cars ever assembled, this is your opportunity to seize the day!BODYWORK/TRIMAfter leaving GM's Van Nuys assembly line in the summer of 1979, this Poncho was trailered the short way to Bryant Pontiac in Covina, CA. This car wears the original Heritage Brown paint under tough “TRANS AM” call-outs and brilliant Screamin' Chicken decals. Details like black headlight buckets, black reveal moldings, black tail lamps, and familiar wheel spoilers round out classic, pavement-pounding aesthetics. This example has never been repainted and has minor wear, scratches, and dings.ENGINE6.6 litres of GM power back up the car's angry demeanor. Correctly maintained and ready to roll: this coupe- being all original- is equipped with a numbers matching 403 cubic inch V8. A big 4-barrel carburetor feeds 4A heads that are equipped with 83cc combustion chambers. Delco Air conditioning is always a welcome addition. Decals and brandings are as fresh as when the car rolled off the assembly line. Everything is neatly wrapped in a striking combination of Satin Black and GM Corporate Blue paint. While horsepower numbers aren't huge by today's standards, 320 lb./ft. of torque is more than enough oomph to make this 'bird fly! Only modification is the radiator and fan, all else is original from the factory from 1979 in Van Nuys, CA.DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSIONThe 403 V8 entertained only one option for shifting: GM's trusty Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed. That gearbox sends power to a GM 10-bolt, which is equipped with a limited slip differential and highway-friendly gears. Under that rock-solid powertrain, a full performance suspension, which includes mandatory power steering and thick sway bars, combines with 4 wheel disc brakes (WS6 performance package) to provide quick stops and great handling. At the corners of the car, requisite 'snowflake' wheels spin 225/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around correct gold paint and familiar 'gold bird' center caps.INTERIORBehind this Pontiac's massive doors, you'll find a factory optional Velour interior that's centered in miles of cool trim. Seats are comfortably firm, framing a simple, Camel Tan console and chrome GM shifter. In front of those seats, an engine turned instrument panel hangs crystal clear gauges above factory climate control and a Delco-GM stereo. In front of the driver, a standard Formula steering wheel spins around a tilting column. Behind the passengers, a clean trunk anchors a Space Saver spare tire under an original and clean decklid decal.With its awesome drivetrain, ornate interior and glossy Heritage Brown paint, this Trans Am simply can't be beat in the realm of late '70s muscle cars. Factor in a one owner history, full documentation and the well-known swagger that only team Firebird can deliver, and you get a truly special cruiser for not a lot of money. If you're ready to put a premium pony car in your collection, don't miss the chance to claim this groovy Poncho! Images Download the Motors app
