LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1979 Pontiac Trans Am 10th Anniversary Edition
The 1970s came to an end with vast changes to performance car marketing over the previous decade, and one of the most exciting cars from that concluding year was the Silver Anniversary Pontiac Trans Am. Built specifically to commemorate the 10th year of Trans Am packaging (first introduced in 1969) , these limited-edition cars came loaded with nearly every possible option as well as special features not offered to standard buyers. The 10th Anniversary examples were specifically identifiable, painted Platinum Silver with Charcoal Gray two-tone lower paint accents and an oversized silver/gray bird graphic that extended over onto the fenders; the finish here is original to the car’s release. Charcoal and red striping surrounds the body’s external accessories, and the 10th Anniversary Fisher T-tops came with a special mirrored finish, as seen here.
Beginning life at GM's Van Nuys manufacturing facility and meeting its first owner at Scott-Preusee Inc. in Redwood Falls, Minnesota, this pristine Pontiac has been cared for over its lifetime and has only accumulated 17,925 miles from new. Under the hood is the numbers matching 400ci beneath the shaker scoop and four speed manual transmission as part of the special W72 performance package. The interior, which remains well-preserved here, featured unique silver leather seats; this was the first- and only-time real leather was made available on any second-generation Trans Am. The “turbo” wheels here were specific to the 10th Anniversary this year, not available on any other version of the Firebird until 1980. Beneath this Trans Am, a clean and solid undercarriage tells the story of 42 years of excellent caretaking. This example comes highly optioned which include power windows, power locks, air conditioning, formula steering wheel, tilt steering column, power deck lid, power antenna, four-wheel disc brakes, WS6 performance package and much more!
Included in the sale is the following documentation: window sticker, copy of build sheet, owner’s manual, warranty booklet, factory accessory literature and more. Low mileage examples like this 1979 10th Anniversary Trans Am are hard to find today, making this gorgeous artifact from the Disco era a very desirable addition to any car collector’s stable. With its all-Pontiac motor, stellar aesthetics and substantial documentation, this rare Trans Am is an excellent collectible!
