We have had the good fortune to acquire this very nice and unique 1978 Trans AM. This car is very original and possesses its original numbers matching high output 6.6L W72 motor with the very rare and desirable 4 speed manual transmission. The car is well optioned with its original AM/FM radio, Delco-GM rear speakers, tilt steering wheel, custom vinyl trim group, roof drip moldings, window sill moldings, power windows, factory Air Conditioning, rear electric window defogger, door edge guards, additional acoustical insulation, lamp group, and honeycomb wheels. It is a rare special order white on white color combination that has the oxblood interior accents and is truly stunning. The interior is all original and excellent. The paint is a one repaint that was done about 6 years ago and is excellent as well. The red and black bird really jumps off of the white hood. The engine compartment is outstanding and original as well, a really well preserved survivor. The car has only 59,xxx original miles and the PHS document/build sheet are with the car. This car has been very well preserved over the years and actually won 2nd place at the Pontiac Nationals for Class and Year, and the trophy remains with the car. This car is a great investment grade Trans Am in one of the most desirable years with a rapidly climbing market for these models. It runs, drives, and presents like new to provide lots of entertainment and attention as your investment grows. Well preserved, original numbers matching Trans AM’s with the 4 speed are becoming fewer and farther between. Hurry and snatch this excellent example while you can. Originally offered at $37,900. Now only .$34,900
