For Sale: 1978 Pontiac Firebird in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

The numbers-matching V8 and overall clean style make this 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am instantly attractive. And of course, a full black and gold T/A can't help but have a ton of celebrity appeal.

Sure, we all love a black late-70s Trans Am because it looks like the true outlaw that raced through Smokey and the Bandit, but the appeal of this one goes much deeper. First, the Starlight Black paint was a later upgrade, and so that means a younger finish done with modern practices. So it has held up quite well to look glossy in the sunshine while still being driver-ready. And the upgrade to the famous SE gold packaging was comprehensively done. So you not only get the iconic hood bird looking quite crisp and complete, but there's also the detailed pinstriping that highlights the unique front end and flared wheel arches. And we love a true Trans Am because it nails all the aggressive details right, like the shaker hood, fender vents, complete body kit, and the full-width rear spoiler. Plus, no Trans Am would be complete without the cast alloy "snowflake" wheels done in a coordinating golden tone.

The black interior continues the full midnight style. It's clean, comfortable, and cruiser-ready. There are the right comforts with an updated Pioneer AM/FM/cassette stereo, an armrest center console, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need a belt and servicing to blow cold again.) But what you'll like most of all is the driver-focused feeling. It comes from high-back front bucket seats, a classic T/A sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and a cool machined aluminum dash with all your essentials - including a large speedo and tach.

Under the hood is the 400 cubic-inch V8. This numbers-matching motor looks quite authentic, right down to the four-barrel carburetor and factory hood shaker display. This V8 is well maintained to fire up eagerly and move the car with authority. Features like front disc brakes and sway bars front & rear helped earn the Trans Am a reputation for being one of the most nimble American V8 coupes of its day. Plus, this one has all-around driving appeal with a comfortable cruiser like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brake, and wide modern tires.

Complete with the original window sticker, this T/A gives you sleek looks, solid power, and some Bandit-level fun. So don't miss this midnight-style Trans Am. Call today!!!
