Vehicle Description

1978 Pontiac TA, Fully Restored, Excellent Paint, Factory Martinique Paint TA, Fully restored Interior



Cincy Classic Cars is proud to offer this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am which has been fully restored and is in beautiful overall condition with a nice running 403 engine coupled with an automatic transmission.  This Trans Am features a professional repaint in Factory Marty Blue, a fully restored interior, a good running 403 engine, a rebuilt undercarriage, and numerous restoration receipts. This Trans Am is finished a beautiful and desirable color combination of Martinique Blue (code 24) over Blue vinyl (code 24N) interior.  This is the factory color scheme as seen on the trim tad photographed above.  This TA is a stunner and is in excellent overall condition and this Marty Blue color really stands out in a crowd.     


The Blue exterior is in beautiful restored condition.  This Trans Am was treated to a professional repaint in Marty Blue Metallic with all new decals which are in like new condition.  The paint is in excellent condition and has a high gloss and smooth touch, with a beautiful shine.  There is no bubbling paint anywhere on the body and the gaps and lines are very good around the car.  This car came from California and spent most of its life there and shows around the car.  Both bumpers are in great shape with no flaking or faded paint and the nose crest emblem was changed.  There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but noting was intentionally excluded from the photos.  Tires have good tread left and drive nicely and the OEM Snowflake wheels are in good condition.  All weather stripping and window sweeps are newer and in great condition. Trunk is very solid and clean with an original style trunk mat, the original spare tire and jack.  The underside is extremely solid and honest and shows no signs of any prior or past rust and no repairs or patches anywhere on the underside.  The underside has been rebuilt and shows very well with a newer exhaust system, newer fuel and brake lines, new shocks, and newer body mounts.  A functional flap was added to the shaker which opens and closes with the pressing of the gas pedal.  Its both very cool and functions properly.     


The Blue interior of this Trans Am has been fully restored.  The seat covers are like new and were replaced and show no signs of any major wear. All   seat belts were replaced and look new.  The carpet is like new as well with no major stains, rips, or holes and was replaced.  The original dash is in great shape and the dash bezel is good as well.  A retrosound stereo was installed and sounds great in the car and the dash was not cut for installation.  The shifter plate was changed and so was the console lid.  The door panels are newer and in excellent condition and the arm rests are in tact and work as they should.  The headliner and package tray have also been replaced and both are in like new condition.  All interior lights and gauges work as they should outside of the clock. The horn, wipers, stereo, and blower motor all work. This TA has upgraded AC wiring and the AC blows cold and works well.  This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever.


This Trans Am is in great mechanical condition and the 403 engine runs well. The 403 engine was believed to be rebuilt in 2012 and by the looks of the freeze plugs shows that.  The automatic transmission was also said to have been rebuilt in 2012 and shifts well.  There are no receipts for the engine or transmission rebuilds unfortunately.  In the video one can observe this car running and driving with no excessive rattles or noises, and the car handles and performs well.  This Trans Am is a great driver that feels good on the road and at highway speeds.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time and runs strong. Heater core was replaced in 2012.  Carb. was completely rebuilt.  The brakes do not pull while driving and stop well and the brake lines are newer.  A new high performance starter was added.  New suspension bushings and body mounts were added.  A complete new Pypes exhaust system was professionally added with newer Thorton manifolds which gives this TA an amazing rumble at idle and cruising speeds. Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos.  This is a factory AC TA which is currently functioning and blowing cold air.  This is a fun TA to have and gets a lot of looks while driving and runs and drives well.  Marty Blue is an excellent color on these cars and was only available in 1978.
