Lot #1559 1979 PONTIAC TRANS AM 10TH ANNIVERSARY 2 DOOR
Lot #1559 - In 1979, Pontiac released a limited build of 7,500 10th Anniversary Trans Ams to commemorate the first Trans Am that rolled off the assembly line in 1969. Pontiac had created a truly special edition with a striking two tone paint scheme of silver and charcoal colors accented by a red, silver and charcoal stripe that outlined the body. It was further enhanced by a special five-color hood bird that was so large its wing tips extended over the hood and onto the tops of the fenders. There were also 10th Anniversary badges displayed on the front fenders and rear deck lid. Matte black window trim and blacked-out tail lights gave the Trans Am an aggressive look. Finishing off the exterior were mirrored T-tops. The silver color motif was also carried throughout the car's interior. Silver leather covers the stylish front and rear seats. Color embroidered birds adorned the door panels and rear seat. The steering wheel grip and horn button were also finished in silver. A thick shag-type carpet with additional sound deadeners covered the floor. 10th Anniversary edition cars also came equipped with all the available power options of the time such as power windows, power brakes, power trunk release, air conditioning, tilt-wheel, cruise control, and AM/FM 8-track stereo system. Additional details were an "engine turned" shifter bezel plate that matched the dash and red illuminated gauges. All 10th Anniversary Trans Ams sported the WS6 handling suspension option that included 4-wheel disc brakes with 11.1" rotors, and was finishing off with Goodyear 225/70R15 tires wrapped around an exclusive polished "Turbo" wheel and a posi-traction rear end. We have for your consideration a perfect example of one of these rare automobiles. It is 1 of only 5,683 like-equipped cars with a 403cid V8 and automatic transmission. It comes complete with the original Build Sheet, Window Sticker and owner's manual. With only less than 3,900 actual miles, this car is highly desirable and collectable.
