We all love 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am for being one of the best American sports cars of its era. So when you can get the V8 power, A/C interior, and iconic hood bird all wrapped in a more distinctive (and factory-correct) bright blue package, then you know it's time to pay attention.
Martinique Blue is the name of the color that has all your attention. It was only offered in '78 so this bold look also has instant historical appeal. That's why this one has been treated with care and has quite a nice luster in the sunshine. The Trans Am packaging on this example looks particularly striking as they used a tasteful combination of light blues for the logo package on the fenders, b-pillars, and across the rear. And of course, that iconic hood bird leads the way in the distinctive multi-tone blue. A true T/A means plenty of aggressive pieces like the fender flares, fender vents, full-width spoiler, and the bold hood scoop. And the iconic gold snowflake alloys really stand out nicely against the special color.
Black interiors always look great on these T/As, and it looks like the made more recent investments in the seats and door panels to make this extra inviting. The T/As cool sports steering wheel is on a tilt column, and so you get a great view of the full gauge package set in the bright machine-turned panel. It's set up to be a comfortable sports car with an armrest center console and high-back bucket seats. You also have some very nice upgrades, like the AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input to plug in your phone, and the floor mats have blue inserts to break up the full black package and remind you of the special paint on the exterior. Plus, the air conditioning was converted to modern R134 within last couple of years.
It's always fun to lift the hood wherever you park a T/A like this, because that Shaker hood on top loves to draw a crowd. This one also has plenty to talk about as the 400 cubic-inch V8 has been upgraded with an Edelbrock intake and Holley four-barrel carburetor. You'll even spot some nice supporting component upgrades, like the aluminum radiator. This has been given the kind of care that makes for a great driving classic. Plus, you have the right anytime features, like the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes w/discs up front, power steering, and sway bars front & rear.
The sale comes complete with the maintenance records and factory buildsheet that proves this coupe was born with this distinct blue. So when you can find a well-respected Trans Am with the look and features you want, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
