Some people wanted to play Smokey and the Bandit when buying a Firebird in the late 1970s. But others like this one were a far better breed. Here's the ultimate surviving 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with exceptionally original features such as the bold red paint, 400 V8 under the hood, four-speed manual transmission, and WS6 package as per the included build sheet.

The second generation Trans Am was a seriously intimidating package. The wide ground effects in front of the wheel wells, integrated rear spoiler, and shaker hood all gives this a real presence on the streets. When the dent-resistant Endura front end is as complete as this one, it's not only a dead giveaway to some serious care, but also it gives the Firebird Trans Am an aggressive beak that perfectly complements the famous "screaming chicken" on the hood. It only gets better as the whole car looks like it's breathing fire thanks to the blazing paintwork. The code-75 Mayan Red is believed to be all original and is in excellent shape. It's the kind of bright red that helps grab attention away from the black Smokey and the Bandit replicas. Not does this one standout, but it holds true survivor status thanks to it being period correct right down to the slotted rear window and iconic snowflake alloy wheels.

The fiery red attitude continues on the interior with the high-back cloth bucket seats, door panels, carpeting, and center console all coordinating with this aggressive tone. But it's far from a sea of crimson. The there are bright touches all around the door, vents, and the three-spoke steering wheel. Of course the most famous shining piece is the iconic machined aluminum inlay that covers the whole dash panel. Inside there is a full gauge package, including Pontiac's cool tach/clock combo. The whole inside is just as amazingly worthy of survivor status as the exterior. In fact, this is original right down to the AM/FM stereo with factory CB still in place! Of course, we didn't forget about the T-tops. It's one of the most desirable interior options from the '70s. Not only does this one have them, but also thanks to factory air conditioning, you can take them out any time of the year.

With a car that's been so thoroughly original inside and out so far, it shouldn't surprise you that it's the numbers-matching 400 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. It has an exceptional honest presentation right down to the light blue block color you can see below the correct snorkel intake. These cars were known for being ferocious. This power inhales through four-barrel carburetor living under that hood scoop, and exhales with authority though the quad-tip dual exhaust. One feature that's seen on a lot of these, but is thankfully missing on this one, is the popular automatic transmission option. That's right...even the Bandit didn't get the kind of powerband control that you have in this four-speed manual coupe. But what really makes this survivor Trans Am special is the WS6 handling package. It includes a larger sway bar, tighter steering box ratio, and four-wheel disc brakes. This option made the Trans Am the favorite of most automotive magazines back in the day.

We've made a lot of fuss about how exceptionally original this Pontiac is, and so you'll be glad to know it comes with a ton of documentation. This includes the original dealer invoice, factory buildsheet, owner's manual, bill of sale, windows sicker, and plenty of maintenance records. This was the best American sports car you could buy in '79, and someone invested heavily in keeping this way all its life. Here's a rare opportunity to own the greatest of the great T/As.
