This 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is a true iconic classic, right
down to the 400 V8. So when you can find an example that has
remained in the same family all its life, then this loaded and
sleek coupe has an instant attraction.
There's something very distinctive about the factory-correct Solar
Gold. It created one of the coolest coordinating packages around
when combined with the darker gold hood bird and golden snowflake
alloy wheels. So it was sort of like a custom car straight from the
factory. This one amps up the appeal because it's a two-owner
machine that has been in the same family since it was purchased
brand new. So this coupe has been treated with respect all its
life, including a professional re-spray that keeps the golden glow
radiating in the sunlight. More than just its history, this one has
all the elements we love. The widebody appearance is pure
aggression; there are large flares for each fender; and the spoiler
covers the rear from end-to-end. And everyone loves the attitude
that comes from the side scoops and the shaker hood.
The golden tan interior is a great complementing color to the
exterior. It keeps the vintage vibe going with awesome deals, like
the button-top bucket seatbacks and a 1970s-cool CB radio. But this
one is also a nice place to enjoy in modern times because it has
the features you really want. There's cold-blowing factory air
conditioning, an armrest center console, and a tilt steering column
w/sport wheel. Plus, the AM/FM/CD stereo has a USB input and
Bluetooth to make sure you have upgraded driving music. So this one
just seems to know how to strike the ideal balance of a true
classic that also wants to be comfortably enjoyed al weekend
The 400 cubic-inch V8 is the numbers-matching unit, and it has an
authentic appearance right down to the decals. And while the shaker
hood might only be a display piece on this model year (it gets
fresh air from the front,) Pontiac knew it was just too cool not to
have on the T/A. The tidy appearance suggests the powerplant has
been treated to good maintenance, and the way it fires up, idles,
and runs with ease all reinforce this feeling of careful life. It's
built to be a fine driver near of far, and that includes the
smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission and cruise
control. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and sway bars
front & rear finish off this driver-friendly total package.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a rare opportunity to get a
one of the coolest classics around that was also treated like a
member of the family. Call now!
