Introduced in 1970, the second generation Firebird was only available as a fastback coupe. Designed in tandem with the Chevrolet Camaro, the Firebird was a popular halo car for the Pontiac range. Government regulations started killing muscle cars in the 1970's left and right. However, Pontiac kept producing the Firebird Trans-Am with specs that were on the edge of legality, with perhaps some fudging of some horsepower numbers. Of course, Smokey and the Bandit made the late 70's models a highly desired and iconic piece of cultural automotive history that still hold mass appeal to this day.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am for your consideration. Finished in a stunning shade of Mayan Red that the current owner claims to have repainted 20 years ago. The car is a two owner vehicle was purchased off its original owner when it was just 6 months old. The car has been with its current owner for nearly 40 years. The exterior is in excellent original condition, free of any modifications. It features the screaming chicken decal, mud flaps, front and rear spoilers, color matched wheels, and quad exhaust tips. The interior is very nice as well, with original cloth bucket seats as as well as power windows and the factory stereo.
Not often do we get cars in that are in such extraordinary condition and this Trans Am has been extremely well cared for by its long term owner. You'll be hard pressed to find such a stunning example.
