Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this built 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. This car is for the track only, it does not have a title, it is not street legal. However, if you are looking for a new hobby and have always wanted to go down the quarter mile track in about 11 seconds, this is the car for you! The body is painted in a gloss black with tons of racing decals that makes this car look super sharp. To finish off the curb appeal is Weld Racing wheels with drag radial tires wrapped around them. The interior has all been gutted out and a roll cage has been installed. The normal Pontiac dash, gauges, and steering wheel are all still intact but other than that, it is simply a Summit racing seat with RJS 5 point safety harness and added Autometer tac gauges. The bag of money that was thrown into this car is all in the performance. Powering this beast is a 400 CID bored .30 over to now a 406 CID V8 and mated to a TH350 3-Speed automatic transmission and pushing the power to the ground through a Moser 9" rear end with 4.11 gears. Digging into the details of the engine would show you that this setup has Harland Sharp 165 ration roller rockers, a 5.67 in lift/springs/lifters/timing, Comp Cam, ported heads, stock rods, Edelbrock Torker intake, 750 cfm Holley carburetor, Summit Flex Fan, Hooker Headers with evac systems, and so much more. The transmission has a B&M shift kit and trans cooler, 3500 stall speed converter, and even a Hurst quarter stick shifter. The rear end is paired up with a believed to be 35 spline axel, custom drive shaft with heavy duty U joints, and even competition engineering traction bars. If you are looking for something that is ready to go and is so loud that it will scare the neighbors while being loaded up for race day, this car is perfect for you.
