1979 T/A 400 4spd Black in Black SE w/T-tops?
« on: January 28, 2017, 05:36:07 AM »
Has anybody come across a 1979 T/A 400 4 spd black interior and black exterior with T-tops as a Special Edition? I have been looking for years and years, and I cannot find one. Does anybody know if they actually made one? All the ones I have come across are either 403s or 301s and they are all automatic. I know the only 400s in 1979 were manual 4 speeds. The only one I have found that has a 400 4 spd and is a true SE, does not have T-tops. That the closest I have seen yet.

I'm liking the exhaust set up and needing to figure out what to do for mine. 

Where did you get the X-pipe?  What mufflers did you use?

They made 1107, no breakdown on interior color.   A lot of them would have had black.

I currently own one. Black deluxe vinyl, black exterior, numbers matching 400/4 speed Y84 SE. I created a Facebook page listed as 1 of 1107 to locate and document those that remain. I have found over 70 thus far and many are in need of full restoration. Mine is currently in the process of restoration and the work is being documented on the page. Many seem to have the tan interior so I am not sure how rare the black interior is and never even thought about it.
