With its outstanding color combo inside & out, V8 power, and T-top appeal, this 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is the ideal mix of vintage appeal and muscle car prowess.
The second-generation Trans Am was a seriously intimidating package. The wide ground effects in front of the wheel wells, integrated rear spoiler, and shaker hood all gives this a real presence on the streets. The Endura front end gives the Firebird Trans Am an aggressive beak that perfectly complements the famous hood bird graphic. The red and black on this logo, as well as on the T/A details really look nice against the white paint. Not does this one stand out, but also the whole car looks period-correct right down to the iconic snowflake alloy wheels.
T-tops are always meant to come out and show a car off to the world. And the red interior is a terrific pairing as it coordinates with the graphics, including the big hood bird up front. This one really gets its preservation correct, right down to the factory AM/FM stereo that's still cranking out the tunes! But your favorite soundtrack will always come from taking this T/A on the open road. High-back bucket seats and a center console instantly make this a driver's machine. That's exactly what you want when grabbing the shifter with your right hand, and the iconic three-spoke sports steering wheel with your left one. Plus, every sports car fan loves the machine-turned dash that includes Pontiac's famous tach/clock combo.
With 400 cubic-inches under the hood, this is a serious Pontiac. It even has a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor and aluminum heads. So the V8 makes such great muscle car sounds, and moves the car with authority. The Trans Am has a reputation for not only being quick, but also with front disc brakes and sway bars front & rear, it could handle the corners better than most of the American muscle machines of its day. Plus, this one has long-haul comfort thanks to a GM TH350 three-speed automatic transmission and power steering.
This is a great year for the T/A, and this one has all the features you want – there are even provisions for air conditioning! So if you like power and distinction, call today!
