Second-generation F-bodies are still quite popular more than 35 years after the last ones were built. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am with only 61k original miles! This example was made in February 1978 at GM’s Norwood, Ohio factory. It was delivered to Kutztown Auto Company in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. This is a two-owner vehicle that never left the Union’s second state (Pennsylvania) until this year!

Finished in Solar Gold (code 50), the paint, trim and decals are unrestored, original and is in overall satisfactory condition with minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The windows are clear and intact while the horizontal, almost body-width taillights and the quad headlights are haze-free and look good. The car’s bodywork is straight, including the Hurst T-tops. The car’s engine bay is quite tidy while the cargo area is in good shape. A spare tire, jack, mat and T-top bag are included. The car’s body-colored Endura bumpers still look good after all these years.

This T/A rolls on new Cooper Cobra Radial G/Ts, size 225/70R15 at all four corners and each tire is wrapped around a factory original 15×8 gold Snowflake alloy wheel. Car has the factory WS6 special handling package (also called Radial Tuned Suspension), which offered a larger diameter front and rear sway bar, tighter steering ratio plus the Snowflake alloys.

Under that shaker hood is the factory original 400 CID (code W72) high-performance, numbers matching V-8 engine breathing via dual exhausts. Backing up the engine is a factory original Borg-Warner Super T-10 close-ratio, four-speed manual transmission with matching numbers and a 3.42:1 Saf-T-Trak differential. Saf-T-Trak was Pontiac’s name for Positraction. Driver convenience features include power steering with tilt column and power front disc/rear drum brakes. Car has new brake pads, rotors, calipers and hoses as well as new air, fuel and oil filters.

Inside, the car’s Deluxe Camel Tan (code 62N) vinyl interior is in overall great original order. The high-back front buckets and rear seat are in decent order but the driver’s seat has some minor blemishes. The matching tan carpet is in good order, as is the headliner. There’s an optional Formula three-spoke steering wheel facing the driver that is in good order, while the instrument panel and its silver backing stand out from the rest of the tan interior trim. The dashboard, inner door liners, center console and shifter are all in the same good order and a factory AM/FM radio complete the interior.

Documentation includes copies of the original factory build sheet, original window sticker, original bill of sale, original owner’s manual and more.

Competition to this Firebird in 1978 included the Avanti II, Chevrolet’s Camaro Z28, Datsun’s 280Z, Ford’s Mustang II and Mercury’s Capri and Toyota’s Celica Supra.

What better way to pay homage to Burt Reynolds’ characters from the “Cannonball Run” and “Smokey & the Bandit” movies than to visit MotoeXotica Classic Cars and test-drive this ’78 Firebird? You need to do it fast though, before someone else drives this car away.
