1979 Pontiac Trans Am Why This Car Is Special The Trans Am has established itself as a permanent American icon. Production volume testifies that the Second-Gen Firebird was most popular with consumers. The beautiful dark Blue 1979 Pontiac Trans Am we have at Skyway Classics is a combination of beautiful styling, superb handling, and strong Pontiac 6.6 V-8 performance that makes It highly coveted by collectors and performance traditionalists alike.

It has a Rochester Quadrajet carburetor on an aluminum four-barrel intake manifold that feeds into dual turbo mufflers before it exits out the rear. Our engine sits in a very clean and detailed engine compartment with the correct shaker hood scoop, chrome valve covers, air conditioning, and power steering and power disc brakes. Backing every T/A 6.6 engine throughout the \'79 model year a Borg-Warner Super T10 four-speed manual transmission with a First-gear ratio of 2.43:1. Because the WS6 Suspension Package was required with the W72 Performance Package that year, all Firebirds equipped with the T/A 6.6 received a 10-bolt rear axle filled with a 3.23:1 ratio gear set, and new-for-the-year J65 rear disc brakes on either end. Interior Our 1979 TA has a great blue interior with twin bucket seats and matching rear seat, center console housing the 4-speed shifter, blue simulated leather-wrapped Formula steering wheel, an engine-turned instrument panel inlay, the standard Rally Gauge cluster which included both a clock and tachometer, power windows, an aftermarket stereo system, power locks, and air conditioning. Exterior Our \'79 model featured from Pontiac a freshly redesigned nose and tail sections, both molded from a new, softer plastic material, front and rear spoilers, and wheel opening spoilers, all covered in the sharp gloss dark blue exterior paint. The front end sports quad headlamps recessed into individual tunnels, while the blacked-out split grilles were repositioned below the lamps; turn signal/running lamps were recessed into the grilles. The tail panel appeared to be one continuous blacked-out unit with the taillamp lenses flanking the centrally positioned fuel-filler door, cloaked in matching trim. It has air extractors on the front fenders as they had since the \'70 model, with a large gold custom airbrushed Firebird on our TA\'s hood. Our Pontiac has specific springs and shock absorbers, stiffer suspension bushings, a constant-ratio steering box, a larger rear sway bar, and 15×8-inch aluminum and gold painted Snowflake wheels with performance Firehawk Indy 500 raised white letter tires. Conclusion The 1979 Pontiac Trans Am we have at Skyway Classics has the looks, performance, and the optional packages that make the Trans Am into what many already considered an excellent performer to exceptional, propellin
