1979 Trans Am - 1 of 1530 - For Sale in Iowa
« on: May 09, 2009, 01:47:30 AM »
Hey Guys,

I came across this Trans Am while checking out my regular car websites:

http://www.duffys.com/inventory/view/8060288/1979-pontiac-trans-am/

I have never seen a 1979 with a 301, or the number "301" on the hood scoop, but it appears to be in good shape by the couple of pictures they have posted.  I have seen a few cars from Duffy's over the years and they are typically very impressive.

Just thought I would pass this one on!

I have seen some 79's with the 301 and it must be at the end of the 79 production and beginning of the 80 models. I have never seen T/A 301 though, only 4.9 Looks like a nice car but a little high on price in my opinion for a small v-8

I don't believe "TA 301" was put on the shaker back in the day.  Easy to remove and label correctly if someone wants it though ...

You sure?  I thought they got the T/A 4.9 stickers?  Either way it's a clean looking firebird but don't think I'd want to spend $15k on a 4sp 301 car.

t/a 4.9 shaker decals weren't used until 1980.

duffy's is located here in my town,  they have many old musclecars & other classics.  typically they are a little high on the prices but they do have some nice cars.  lately they have been getting quite a few t/a's.    if anyone is interested i can go look at the car & get more pics or details.
