1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am - Original Right Hand Drive For Sale

This highly original, matching numbers Pontiac Firebird in the top of the range Trans Am spec is exceedingly rare in right-hand drive. However, this particular example is rarer still in that it has almost always been right hand drive having been converted by the GM dealer (DCH) in Hong Kong before being delivered to its first owner in 1979.

From new the car has only been in the ownership of three families with the second cherishing the car for more than 30 years. It has always been garaged, has very rarely seen rain and has been maintained totally regardless of cost.

Having been pampered throughout its life, the car is in fabulous, unrestored condition overall. It is highly original with the exception of re-trimmed seats, small paintwork corrections and a slightly more vocal exhaust system.

Powered by the dependable 6. 6 litre Oldsmobile 403 (the biggest engine available in ’79), this Trans Am is mated to GM’s strong and reliable TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. This combined with the more desirable (and better looking) Fisher T-tops make it an eminently usable classic and an effortless long-distance touring car.

Immortalised in films such as Smokey and the Bandit, the car is full of character and universally admired. Now offered for sale, this is an unrepeatable opportunity to acquire an iconic, unique, and highly original right-hand drive American muscle car.
