For auction is a 1979 Pontiac Tran Am.   Documented Arizona car 04/1979. 10/2005.   Continuously garaged during my ownership since 2005.   This is a DRIVER. not a perfect show car.  



We consider this a “driver” and is not a “show car”.   Lots of work has been done. see below.   If you are looking for a good and rust-free car to drive around in without the worry of getting a scratch in a parking lot. this is the car for you.   I hold a clear title in my name.



Car was purchased in Arizona. Photocopy of car title at time of purchased shows the car was first registered in Arizona 04/1979. It also shows when it was purchased and taken out of Arizona in 2005.  I do not have copies of titles since new and cannot verify it never left the state during those years. However. previous Arizona title number is listed on Arizona title and more research could be done. (See photos) 

Current title is from Texas.



From what we can tell. this is a virtually rust-free car.   There is some superfluous surface rust underneath which is normal for any vehicle which is driven regularly.   Body does have dings. dents. etc.   Please look at the photos carefully.



The car has been repainted since original but has a very old paint job on it.   Color is the original brown.   Paint shows excellent adhesion with no bubbles. peals. etc.   It does have nicks. chips. scratches. dings. dents. etc. throughout the car.   We consider the car a “10-footer”.   We have attempted to show as many of the paint imperfections as possible in the various photos.   Please examine the photos carefully.  


Most of the decals are original. apparently having been taped around when the car was painted.   New bird has been installed on the hood.


Replaced front windshield. clean rear glass. side windows have typical scratches from use/worn felts ( Have since replaced window felts).
