1978 Pontiac Trans Am

1978 Firebird Trans Am for sale....only because I picked up a super low mileage 1978 Corvette and only room for one. This TA was a driver and not a garage queen so it has miles but still plenty of torque if you hit the gas (hard NOT to squeal the tires) and no oil burn noticed. Passed CA smog. Previous owner put in a rather nicely done chrome 4 point roll bar which I left intact (see photo). Here's a partial list of replace or repairs: All stock engine (no hot rod parts) but distributor cap, rotor, wires, plugs, filters replaced, and carb rebuilt. Transmission rebuilt and B&M shift kit installed. Cooling system had new 4 core radiator, clutch fan, and thermostat installed. Body bushings, A arm bushings, upper ball joints, sway bar bushings, end links, new KYB shocks, and front/rear springs replaced. Differential currently has a 3:08 posi for around town but have the original 2:56 posi too. Brakes had new pads/shoes, calipers, master cylinder, bearings and seals installed. AC compressor, and drier replaced, with gas recharge. New 800 cca battery. Original radiator, master cylinder, and other pieces such as extra black headlight bezels and Edelbrock Performer manifold will go with car if wanted and a car cover is included. Paint shows the years but still shows well and only one small spot of suspected rust that I found on the lower driver's rear wheel well which I haven't had checked by paint shop (see small area at bottom of photo #11). This is an original black and gold TA but not a Special Edition although the snowflake wheels and SE graphics were added. Original build sheet is intact and shows good options. She gets lots of attention when out so be prepared for that.
