Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to list this sharp 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 for you.
