“This 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am two-door performance coupe has covered 41,048 miles since new and is #56 of 96 total units produced in its configuration as a Macho Edition by brothers Kyle and Dennis Mecham for its model year,” AutoHunter notes in the listing.
Under the hood is an L78 400ci V8 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor, Hooker headers and dual exhaust. The engine is paired to a console-shifted 4-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential.
Finished in gold metallic it features the iconic Firebird hood decal, extensive brown body accents, and a “Macho T/A” decal below the rear trunk lid.
“After delivery to its originating dealer, the car was customized as a limited-run Macho unit by brothers Kyle and Dennis Mecham as 1 of 96 for its model year,” AutoHunter states in the listing. “Macho-spec Firebirds were subject to cosmetic and mechanical upgrades for increased power, including a functional shaker hood scoop.”
It rides on cast aluminum snowflake wheels with BFGoodrich Radial T/A raised white-letter tires.
