Pontiac capitalized on the popularity of its first-generation Firebird by creating a more aerodynamic and lower profile sequel that is reflected by this 1978 example. The Pontiac Firebird Trans Am you see here has been consistently kept indoors, which is made evident by its current pristine condition. The stunning white exterior with the trademark Firebird decals in red and gray convey a thoroughly authentic and eye-catching appearance, let alone make for a gorgeous color combination. The precise configuration is made obvious by the straight body lines and well-aligned door gaps. Fresh rubber seals from the front to the back help to keep elements from intruding, and the top-tier upgraded suspension gives this Firebird an incredible stance and more enjoyable ride.
Open the doors and you’ll reveal a red vinyl interior that has been thoroughly refurbished while retaining its stock configuration. Everything in the cabin has been brought to the highest standards; it’s a comfortable driving space where you can look forward to spending plenty of time in. Saying that the cabin is “clean” is an understatement; it’s in exceptional show condition. The red carpeting, front bucket seats, and rear bench seat appear just as they did when this muscle car came off the factory floor some 40-plus years ago. The textured chrome instrument panel beyond the original steering wheel holds a range of upgraded Dakota Digital gauges that illuminate the interior while monitoring important driving functions. There’s also a Classic Auto Air climate control system on board to keep things nice and cool during the hot summer months.

Powering this bad boy is an LS3 6.2-liter V8 engine mated to a four-speed automatic 4L65E transmission. The motor’s been equipped with a variety of well-chosen accompaniments to boost both its output and dependability. This Trans Am started off with both horsepower and torque that exceeded the 400 mark, and has since been equipped with an Edelbrock intake manifold, Trick Flow roller cam, Comp rockers and lifters, and a Fast Fuel injection system. Tubular control arms with coilovers up front upgrade both its handling and ride quality as it sits on a set of 17-inch Snowflake wheels wrapped in 275 all around, with power disc brakes to bring it to a stop quickly.
