This 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is a true iconic classic, right down to the 400 V8. So when you can find an example that has remained in the same family all its life, then this loaded and sleek coupe has an instant attraction. There's something very distinctive about the factory-correct Solar Gold. It created one of the coolest coordinating packages around when combined with the darker gold hood bird and golden snowflake alloy wheels. So it was sort of like a custom car straight from the factory. This one amps up the appeal because it's a two-owner machine that has been in the same family since it was purchased brand new. So this coupe has been treated with respect all its life, including a professional re-spray that keeps the golden glow radiating in the sunlight. More than just its history, this one has all the elements we love. The widebody appearance is pure aggression; there are large flares for each fender; and the spoiler covers the rear from end-to-end. And everyone loves the attitude that comes from the side scoops and the shaker hood. The golden tan interior is a great complementing color to the exterior. It keeps the vintage vibe going with awesome deals, like the button-top bucket seatbacks and a 1970s-cool CB radio. But this one is also a nice place to enjoy in modern times because it has the features you really want. There's cold-blowing factory air conditioning, an armrest center console, and a tilt steering column w/sport wheel. Plus, the AM/FM/CD stereo has a USB input and Bluetooth to make sure you have upgraded driving music. So this one just seems to know how to strike the ideal balance of a true classic that also wants to be comfortably enjoyed al weekend long. The 400 cubic-inch V8 is the numbers-matching unit, and it has an authentic appearance right down to the decals. And while the shaker hood might only be a display piece on this model year (it gets fresh air from the front,) Pontiac knew it was just too cool not to have on the T/A. The tidy appearance suggests the powerplant has been treated to good maintenance, and the way it fires up, idles, and runs with ease all reinforce this feeling of careful life. It's built to be a fine driver near of far, and that includes the smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission and cruise control. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and sway bars front & rear finish off this driver-friendly total package. Complete with owner's manual, this is a rare opportunity to get a one of the coolest classics around that was also treated like a member of the family. Call now!
