1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Additional Info:

If you love the look of a classic T/A, but want all the best upgrades, it's time to pay attention. This 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has all the best stuff you want: a performance-built 488 V8, upgraded five-speed stick-shift, plenty of docs, and a comfy A/C interior. And it's all wrapped in a sleek and distinct metallic package.

While a black T/A has its own fan club, this turns plenty of heads for another reason. The factory-correct Chesterfield Brown is a smooth and sophisticated color that shows you are a classic car connoisseur. But it also doesn't miss out on its wild side thanks to a deep clearcoat luster and a metallic element that was part of a professional respray later in life. So this one loves to radiate as it shows off the best features of the Trans Am, like the flared fenders, fender vents, and full-width rear spoiler. And that golden orange racing stripe painted on top looks like an arrow pointed the car forward. Even the gold snowflake-style alloys fit in nicely with the color theme. And the secret to these is that they are actually a larger size than stock to fit proper modern performance tires.

Inside, the camel interior is a great complementing color to the exterior. This has a great classic look, right down to the hallmark hobnail cloth. But everything has the look and feel that tells you there were the right investments made, too. Plus, you'll also love how it's loaded with features like power windows, tilt steering column, electric rear defrost, tinted windows, power steering, a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette, upgraded speakers, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. Pontiac's distinct sports steering wheel has a matching tan wrapping, and beyond that is the hallmark machine-turned dash with full gauge package, including large speedo and tach. And your right hand is going to love the Hurst special 50th anniversary NASCAR shifter.

Under the hood is the clean look of a mean motor. That iconic shaker element is on top of a hot one. Pontiac's famous 400 cubic-inch V8 has been bored and stroked to 488ci total. It has been upgraded further with Edelbrock aluminum heads, a high-rise intake, fabricated Pontiac valve covers, billet pulleys w/serpentine belt, an aluminum radiator, and topped with a Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor. And a set of Doug's headers add power while adding to the rumble of the dual exhaust. It's got terrific power, and you get to take full control of it with the upgraded Tremec TKO five-speed manual transmission. And this is also built to be a handler with sway bars front & rear, grippy ZR-rated tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and a dyno sheet. This is an awesome Trans Am that's been given the right investments to be slick, comfortable, and seriously powerful. Call today!!!
