Classic Car Overview

You thought performance died after 70. The old muscle cars of your youth were left out to pasture, and you watched them rust into the landscape. You settled into the family lifestyle, piloting a full-size wood-grained wagon across six states to get to some cheesy tourist attraction. Thats when the Trans Am hit the silver screen dressed in black, and the twinge of horsepower tickled your right foot again. You wanted one, but responsible reality returned. -Hemmings This iconic 1978 Pontiac Trans Am is finished in the classic Starlight Black with coordinating black interior and has been in storage since approximately 1993 and is only showing 15,704 miles. This Trans Am with the 6.6-liter motor is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission that shifts and pulls through the gears as if you just drove it off the showroom floor. This Trans Am is verified with PHS documents and appears to still have the original paint as applied in 1978. This car is for the collector seeking low mile original cars.
