1978 Pontiac trans am

Up for sale is a beautifully restored 1978 Pontiac trans am, numbers matching, factory starlight black car with correct factory decals, a real Smokey and the bandit car! No more than 100 miles since restoration!


This car is an excellent example of a survivor, I am the second owner of the car, it was a great car before restoration, needing no major rust work such as floors, as a result all panels are very original and fit great.


The original Pontiac 400 was rebuilt and upgraded with powerful mods such as edelbrock aluminum heads, new quickfuel carburetor, new aggressive cam, pertronix distributor, etc. the entire engine was overhauled and nothing was missed, included is a pic of the machine work done to the engine and the parts, no expense was spared. The transmission was also upgraded to a stout Tremec TKO-500, for added driveability and reliability. Dual exhausts with an X pipe was added with brand new tips, which gives the car a classic muscle car sound, but not loud enough to annoy the driver. Brand new period correct BFG T/A radials were put on the original snowflake rims.


The interior is for the most part, original. The dash, gauges and steering wheel are all original. The front seats were recovered in factory correct deluxe covers, but the rear seats are all original and in excellent shape with no cracks. Brand new factory correct carpet was installed. The radio was replaced with a modern retro sound radio that retains a vintage look with the perks of modern amenities such as Bluetooth and satellite radio.


The car was repainted to factory correct starlight black, and brand new correct decals were used, this is not a clone like most black trans ams.


Overall this a great example of a second gen F-body and a perfect year and color that is sure to appreciate in the future. Nothing was overlooked during the restoration and tasteful mods were done to insure that this is a great driving car and investment. Included are the literature pertaining to the car, the owners manual and factory literature, PHS documents, and machine shop receipt.
