I always wanted one. Especially an 79' SE Bandit, but whenever one was for sale i was bankrupt.
IMO they're the nicest Firebird/Trans Am ever made.

Just thought I'd add that IMO the '79 is the baddest t/a ever made, and I'll eventually have one. As far as the olds 403 being junk, it got a bad rep b/c of the windowed main webs. It still makes loads of torque and can be pushed to around 500 horse without problems.

like everyone else said... its hard to say without seeing pics
its probably worth around 10-15k but if you find the right buyer you may be able to fetch more

I think this car is very near if not already museum quality.

What, no shoutout for the 77 t/a's? The 79's are definetly sharp, but there's just something about that 77. My dad found one about 2 months ago and offered to buy it for me, but it had just been rebuilt and I wasn't impressed wi/the job that was done, it was slower than my 3.4L firebird, and at that point in time I absolutely wanted an ls1 transam. Turns out, a week later my buddy wrecked his gold 98 t/a (some kinda special edition or something) and did not damage to the engine and trans, and this sob had like 450-500 hp all built by him and his dad (I watched). He wanted to sell it to me for cheap, and I coulda had a badass 77 t/a will a screaming ls1 for dirt cheap!
Oh well, sorry this post was so long, but thanks for listening.

I have a 78 limited gold edition, original pont 400, 4 spd car with factory t-tops that I have had for about 5 yrs now. It is ( finally ) mechanically sound with only cosmetic work needed. I have seen these so for over $25,000 restored. I read about one with very, very low miles go for well over $40,000 out of an auto museum. 2nd gens are supposed to be the next hot car out there, so I've read.
