The Trans Am strategy proved highly successful throughout the latter half of the 1970s, culminating in a record-breaking year in 1979. A decade after its debut, the Trans Am had become the flagship model in the Firebird lineup, with over half of all 1979 Firebirds produced being Trans Ams, including a special Anniversary Model commemorating its ten-year milestone.

With Trans Am production hitting 117,000 units for the first time, out of a total Firebird output of 211,000, the base Firebird secured second place with over 38,000 units. Recently, a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am surfaced on Craigslist, albeit with limited details and photo quality hindering a comprehensive assessment.

While the owner claims the car is complete, its originality and mechanical condition remain uncertain. The popularity of the L80 403 engine in 1979, especially in automatic transmission-equipped Trans Ams, underscores the potential value of a well-maintained, original example.

However, without detailed powertrain information, a thorough inspection is imperative to ascertain its worth. Despite its $4,900 asking price, negotiation may be possible depending on the undisclosed factors and unseen aspects requiring attention.

Given its current state, transportation via trailer is advisable, with the vehicle located in Rockford, and the seller open to other offers, emphasizing the need for further inquiry before making a decision.
