1978 Pontiac Trans Am Firebird
(Featured on 5th February 2012)
Model: Trans Am
Sellers original description:
Awesome survivor Trans Am with only one show quality paint job applied!
33,250 documented miles! The original owner owned it from 1978 until 1986. Second owner had from 1986 until 2009. This car runs and drives awesome.
I have had 100’s of Trans Ams and Firebirds and I can honestly say this Trans Am ranks in my personal top 5 for originality, drivability and appearance.
You can restore them over and over, they are only original ONCE!
This is very original Trans Am. It only has 33,250 pampered miles put on it since it was purchased new. How many have you seen this nice and with this low of miles?
The color combination is stunning in person. It has just had a show quality professional paint job applied to this rust free body. No metal work was needed. It was painted its original color of Martinique Blue (color code 24). The paint is SHOW QUALITY.
I have pictures prior to the paint showing the original paint. I also have detailed pictures of the paint process.
WS6 8” snowflake wheels and new BF Goodrich tires have been added. Body side moldings were removed and not reinstalled.
A few key points look at to see its originality:
Original catalytic converter and exhaust system including tips.
Factory paint dabs in place on the undercarriage.
Engine bay is NOT redone. Look at the original factory stickers.
Vacuum lines still attached.
Interior is original with the exception of the headliner.
Door factory VIN tags in place on inside of drivers door.
Dash bezel is perfect.
Steering column “bumpy” collar is mint.
Factory spare and jack tools.
