1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Description

3,553 ACTUAL MILE Trans Am Survivor 400 V8 Automatic T-Tops A/C /// This awesome 1978 Trans Am is a numbers-matching time capsule that combines 3,553 original miles with enduring Pontiac performance and all-American style! Assembled at GM-Norwood, this halcyon Trans Am was originally sold through Motor Inn Company of Albert Lea, Minnesota. The car's first owner was a dedicated dealership employee who began systematically amassing a collection of spectacular Pontiacs. After roughly 20 years and only 1,700 miles, the enthusiast... decided to thin his collection to fund his growing family. And, in the late 1990s, the car met its second and current owner. That owner maintained the T/A's routine of sparse drives and climate-controlled storage. And today, the car's glossy Solar Gold glow pays excellent homage to factory body panels that are as solid, straight and sculpted as the day they left the showroom! Under this coupe's long hood, you'll find an original Pontiac 400. That proven mill leads an original GM Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed, which sends power to a familiar GM 10-bolt that spins a posi-trac differential around 2.56 gears. Below that smooth drivetrain, a correct WS6 suspension utilizes standard power steering and 4-wheel power disc brakes to mix quick stops with great handling. And at the corners, gold-tinged Snowflakes spin old school GR70-15 Uniroyal Steel Belted Radials. Open this Pontiac's massive doors and you'll find an original Camel Tan interior that creates a striking yet comfortable cockpit. Original seats are agreeably firm. In front of those seats, an engine-turned instrument panel hangs crystal clear Rally Gauges above factory climate control and a vintage Delco-GM cassette player. A Camel Tan console anchors chrome power window switches behind a simple shifter. And in front of the driver, a Formula Steering Wheel laps a tilting column. If you're in the market for a pedigreed Pontiac that's the quintessential late '70s American muscle car, here it is! Call, click or visit for more information.
