1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am T-Top

New to our Pleasanton showroom is this highly impressive 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2 Door T-Top with black exterior paint, gold graphics and a matching gold interior.  You’ll find what the owner believes is a factory-true 403 cid V-8 engine under the hood with an automatic transmission and this desirable sports car is very nicely documented with 96,155 original lifetime miles.  In fact, this example is in 100% original, unrestored condition as a genuine survivor and it is ready to enjoy it’s second life with a new owner.

A True California, One-Owner Survivor /w 96k Miles

This 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am T-Top was purchased new by the current owner in Morgan Hill, California and it has remained here throughout its lifetime so far.  We are informed that it is a 100% numbers-matching, factory correct example that has never received any modifications or alterations, which aligns with what we see under the hood and throughout.  The current owner has driven and enjoyed this example for over 40 years and has a lifetime of documentation to show proper care.  We also have the original owner’s manual on file as well.

In terms of condition, this 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am shows moderate signs of wear and tear since it has never been restored at any point in its life.  You are looking at the original factory paint and decals in these photographs, both of which could benefit from being refreshed (paint & a few small dents) at some point down the road.  The interior and engine bay are around an average driver’s quality as well with some minor blemishes and imperfections but nothing serious that really detracts from this classic’s appeal.  

Simply a Nicely Documented, One-Owner Classic 

Overall, this 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2 Door T-Top is one of the most impressive true survivors that we’ve ever seen and it is a fantastic opportunity at the current asking price.  With an increased demand for these hard-to-find survivors in recent years, this gorgeous example will find a new home quickly.  For more information about this vehicle, visit our Pleasanton, California showroom, give us a call at 925-484-2262, or email us at Sales@SpecialtySales.com.  Be sure to mention Stock # P10605 as well.
