"The Bandit" 1979 Pontiac Trans Am

Driven Rods & Rides presents this rare and difficult to find example of a true 1979 Pontiac Trans Am Special Edition, "Bandit," PHS documented T-top car that is as original as you'll find for the money.


This is an actual T-top, SE Y84 car that spent most of its life in Kansas and is very solid! This is an investment grade, numbers matching, PHS documented collector car.




This is an actual T-top, SE Y84 car that spent most of its life in Kansas. With the original "Numbers Matching" 6.6L Big Block 403ci V8, paired with the original auto trans and original posi rear end, this Trans Am was built by Pontiac to be the cream of their crop in 1979. Finished in starlight code 19 black with a tan/camel deluxe interior and gold trim and embellished with those famous screaming bird decals, this car was optioned right. This Pontiac came with factory t-tops, AC, tilt steering, cruise control, center console, factory tinted glass, custom trim group, and cast aluminum gold snowflake wheels.


This T/A is totally stock and has never been restored. The clock on the dash still works. You can get in and start the car and it will run and drive, but it is ready for a full restoration.


The Bandit is the perfect canvas for your restoration dreams, because this old bird has remarkably solid original floor pans and frame rails with only very small areas toward the rear of the trunk pan and tail. This saves a massive amount of time and money during restoration.


Make this super rare, nicely optioned and documented, unmolested, numbers matching SE TA that deserves a loving home yours today.
