About

My pride and joy! I had looked for years trying to find a replacement for the 1980 black Turbo Trans Am that I had to trade in. I recently learned that it was totaled when the guy’s wife hit a cow with it. I finally found this one a couple of years ago and couldn’t resist. I still wish I had my first one though; a black one and a gold one would look sweet in my driveway.

Specs

Solar Gold 1979 Pontiac Trans Am with a camel tan interior. Previous owner changed some of the interior parts with incorrect ones, but I am in the process of restoring them.

Factory Options

1979 Solar Gold Trans Am with:

camel tan interior

gold graphics

L37 4.9 litre (301) 4bbl V-8 engine (ordered with the smaller engine because a credit was given if you took a smaller engine because of the gas crisis then…..isn’t that ironic.)

automatic transmission

custom air conditioning

heavy-duty alternator

custom-colored seat belts

cruise control

tilt wheel

column-mounted dimmer switch

rally gauges

T-tops

Rally II wheels

This information was taken directly from the build sheet and window sticker that was found in the car. The Pontiac Historical Society also backs up this information.

Mods

The previous owner changed the Rally II wheels with the Snowflakes. They also replaced the custom vinyl seats (because of wear) with cloth standard seats, but I will be changing them back soon.
