For sale in our Chicago showroom is this beautiful blue 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am. Powered by a strong running 400 CID Pontiac V8 paired with a smooth shifting 3-speed automatic transmission, this Trans-Am is ready to roll. This Firebird also has a rather unique option not often discussed; known as the “Rallye Shifter,” it was essentially a factory ratchet shifter. After numerous blown engines from street racers pushing the gear shift from 1st to neutral on accident, this option was introduced in 1969 and was offered on some vehicles to reduce warranty claims.

Unfortunately, the power of late 70s muscle cars never quite matched the good looks. Knowing this, the seller of the vehicle has opted to pump up the power output with a few subtle upgrades. An Edelbrock performance carburetor and aluminum intake were installed to get air pumping into the engine with ease. Pumping it back out is achieved through a set of long tube headers and a custom exhaust system giving this classic ‘Bird some bite to match the bark. A fresh coat of Martinique Blue was applied along with the correct ’78 graphics to really bring this T/A to life.

Beautiful to the eyes, ears, and feels, this is a fantastic example of Pontiacs performance coupe. Options include: AM/FM/CD, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Cloth Interior, Rally Wheels, and Alloy Wheels.
