1979 Trans Am

Vehicle Description

Up for sale is a 1979 Trans Am. Roughly 114,000 miles on the body, speedometer wasn’t working when I got it. 10,000 miles since restoration.

1979 Trans Am, restored in 2004. Full restoration was done over a period of 2 years. Have all receipts for the restoration parts including the engine work. Has the Olds 403 CID and a TH400 transmission with 3.73 axle gears.

Interior was gone through and has new carpet, seat pads and upholstery, new headliner, a dash cap was put on, and all plastics painted factory tan. All weather stripping has been redone including door seals, T-tops, doors, trunk. Door panels have been rebacked but are original. Package tray was made with the same fabric as the seats where upholstered with.

Exterior is still in fair condition. This car has lived most of its restored life in Southern UT where it is over 100* for several months a year, but there is no snow. With this heat and sun the clear has started to go away on the top section between the T-tops. The front bumper has some scratches where someone backed into it in a parking lot. Never saw who. Underside of the hood and the trunk, inside the trunk where the latch is, all door jams, under both front and rear glass, and under all weather stripping have been painted and clear coated. Car has been restored for almost 10 years and has seen 10,000 miles so normal wear and tear with 10 years of age is the best way to describe its condition.

Transmission is a TH400. This is not an original transmission but was chosen for its added strength. It was fully rebuilt in 2003 by a local transmission shop that did work for the shop I worked for at the time. Has a 2,800rpm stall and is free wheeled with a Coan reverse manual valve body and a B&M ratchet shifter. Transmission does have a leak but mainly is from the pan and a poor cork gasket. Would be easily fixed.

Engine is an Olds 403. The engine Machine work was done at Clegg’s in Orem UT. Bottom end has been fully gone through and balanced. Has 9.5:1 flat top pistons. Oil pan is from the GM 350 diesel’s. This allows a factory looking pan that holds an extra qt of oil. Heads where fully gone through and ported new valve seats 3 angle valve job etc. Cam is the Mondello JM-20-22 Cam. Intake is a high rise duel plane manifold that has been port matched and shaved to fit under the shaker hood. Carb is a Holley 770 ported street avenger with vacuum secondarys. Exhaust is Hooker super comp full length headers and a full duel 3” mandrel bent exhaust with Magana Flow mufflers.

Rear axle has been gone through and rebearinged and resealed. Has 3.73 gears with an Eaton 4 spring Posi traction diff. Has new leaf springs at the time of restoration and has the slide-a-link axle anti wrap bars.
