Vehicle Description

For sale is a low mile, survivor 1978 Pontiac Trans Am located in our Indianapolis showroom. This awesome '78 T/A is optioned with the W72 Performance Package and the WS6 Handling package and this option combination quickly established the 1978 Trans Am as the "King of the Hill". The W72 Performance Package was an engine option on the base 6.6 Liter 400 CID engine that provided an additional 20 horsepower over the stock engine and was labeled as the "T/A 6.6". Pontiac achieved this additional horsepower by beefing up the 4-barrel carburetor, adding a cam with 20 more degrees of duration, a new low restriction dual resonator exhaust system, and adding an air cleaner with a larger snorkel. Just so that everyone knew you had a T/A 6.6, the callouts were affixed to the shaker and chrome valve covers. This car is also optioned with the WS6 Handling Package that consists of stiffer rear springs, larger rear stabilizer bar with polyurethane link bushings, tighter shocks, a new steering gearbox with a 14:1 ratio, and 225/70R15 steel belted Goodyear Radials wrapped around a set of 15x8 inch wide snowflake wheels. This 1978 Pontiac Trans Am is powered by its original 6.6L 400 CID V8 engine , backed by a 4-speed manual transmission, running to a Posi Traction rear end with 3.42 gears with only 13,909 actual miles! Options on this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am include: Factory Air Conditioning, AM/FM radio, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Door Locks, Power Windows, Rear Window Defogger, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Aluminum Alloy Wheels, and Raised White Letter Radial Tires. This beautiful survivor is still sporting its original black paint with the unmistakable shaker hood and Firebird decal on the hood. The interior is also nicely preserved in its original black vinyl interior and gold gauge bezel that makes this car pop. This car also comes with the build sheet that outlines all the factory options that were ordered on the car. This is a true collectors piece that will only continue to increase in value over time and is looking for a new home.
