1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am TributeThis 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am tribute has a bold look, A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, a big V8, and four-on-the-floor. That makes for a powerful and alluring coupe offered for a fantastic price.
The second-generation Trans Am was a seriously intimidating package. The wide ground effects in front of the wheel wells, integrated rear spoiler, fender vents, and shaker hood all gives this a real presence on the streets. And this tribute car upgraded to them all. It even has the classic Snowflake-style wheels. But since this coupe is all about upgrades later in life, these are more modern alloys that can accommodate modern performance tires. This was finished in a bold yellow that's sure to attract attention. But what really makes it nice are all the black accents that provide a timelessly attractive contrast. You see it in the dark headlight panels between the beak-like nose, the darkly tinted windows, and even details, like the trim and door handles. The hallmark hood bird is even done in black with fiery red accents.
Inside, is a dark interior with plenty of the right comforts. This includes velour on the seats, an armrest center console, an AM/FM stereo, and R134a air conditioning. It's also a driver-ready package with T/A upgrades like the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and a machine-tuned dash panel with tach/clock combo. And you're going to love resting your right hand on the Hurst shifter.
You can instantly tell there have been some upgrades in the engine bay. After all, it takes time to have a bold yellow block and plenty of accessories all matching the exterior. It even has good fundamentals, including a new belt. What you'll really love is that this is the big 400 cubic-inch V8, and unlike the factory T/As, this one actually breaths fresh air out of the iconic shaker hood scoop. The motor fires up readily, and the four-speed manual transmission gives you full control of the power and the growl of the Flowmaster dual exhaust. Plus, there's power steering, subframe connectors, Nitto NT555 ZR-rated tires, and a four-wheel power disc brakes upgrade.
This gives you the feeling on a 1978 Trans Am and even some better upgrades. So you know this makes for a bold classic offered at a great price. Call today!!!
