Vehicle Overview

In 1979, Pontiac Released the 10th Anniversary Pontiac Trans Am to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the first Trans Am that rolled off the assembly line in 1969. This was a limited production run of only 7,500 Trans Ams. Delivered form the factory as fully loaded Trans Ams, the only options that were available on the 10th Anniversary Trans Am were the powertrain options. This terrific Anniversary example is one of 1,187 equipped with the Pontiac 6.6 litre 400 paired to a 4-speed manual transmission.  Standard on the 10th Anniversary is the two-tone silver and charcoal paint.  This paint scheme is accented by a special 5-color hood-bird which wings extended over the hood and onto the side fenders.  All 10th Anniversary car were fully equipped with the WS6 handling package, custom silver interior with "shag" carpet and the Firebird emblem embroidered in the door panels and also in the rear seat back.  In addition, the interior is trimmed with the unique "Engine-Turned" dash bezel, which for this model has red illuminated gauges instead of the normal white.  Also standard on all 10th Anniversary Trans Ams are power windows, power locks, air conditioning, power trunk release.... in sort, pretty much every option available at the time!  All-in-all, this isn't your ordinary "run-of-the-mill" Trans Am!  Just about everything on this car was taken to the next level to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of this popular muscle car.  This rare Trans Am is in great shape, both mechanically and physically, and ready to be driven!
