Build Sheets
« on: February 20, 2007, 01:18:40 PM »
Hello everyone,

     Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the build sheet for my 1979 Trans Am? I purchased this car for $200.00 after I returned from Iraq I have done some work to it but I would like to rebuild it as close to factory specs as possible. This TA was assembled in Van Nyes CA and was the 1900th to roll off the line that is all I can pull from the VIN. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry to tell you this, but the Build Sheet is a one of a kind item.  The only build sheet made for your car was left in your car during assembly.  Well, there was actually two of them left in your car.  One on the interior usually behind the rear seats or under the front seat, and the second one on top of the gas tank.  If you do not find your build sheet with the car, then it is gone, there is no copies of it (not even at GM).  You can order paperwork from PHS (Pontiac Historical Services) which is about $35.00 for the packet.  It has alot of good information in it, but one of the items is a copy of the original dealer invoice of your car.  It does list most of the major options that came with your car, but does not come close to the complete list like a Build Sheet does.

Thank you Hitman when I get back to Ohio I will check those locations and order that information. The majority of the car is original so I am hoping that it is there still. It still has the original 403 engine that I just had upgraded and rebuilt for about $2500. Thanks again.
