Gateway Classic Cars of houston is proud to offer up this extremely beautiful 1976 Pontiac Trans am. Between the classic styling and beautiful paintjob, this car screams late 70's muscle.

Under the hood of this sweet ride is a massive 400 CID V8. This engine provides loads of torque and makes these cars very fun to drive. When started up, this beast has a nice and low pitch to it that does a good job of making its presence known without being too loud. When driving, the engine runs smoothly and cruises nicely. When it comes time to let the radial tires eat up the concrete, this baby sure moves in a hurry with plenty of torque and force. Sending all of that power rearward is a three speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly through the gears to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable ride. Overall the powertrain in this car is very nice and runs well.

Moving outward, the exterior is finished in an eye-catching Firethorn red. The paint has just been detailed and is in a very good driver condition. Supporting each corner of this classic muscle car are paint matched rally wheels that are in good condition. Wrapped around those rally wheels are radial tires with good tread life left in them to ensure plenty of grip. Subtly tucked behind the front wheels are disc brakes that ensure proper stopping power.

Upon entering this sweet ride, the driver will be greeted by a very clean black interior. The interior features black vinyl seats that are very comfortable and in good condition. Courtesy lights allow for easy entry and exit of the vehicle during night drives. Keeping the interior of this sweet ride at a comfortable temperature all year are functioning heat and AC that blows cold. If the driver ever tires of listening to the big V8, the functioning radio will provide an enjoyable audio experience. Continuing with enjoyable experiences, the driver shan't worry about slow speed maneuvering thanks to power steering and power brakes. Overall the interior of the car is in just as good of condition as the exterior.

1979 Pontiac Trans Am

1979 Pontiac Trans Am


Engine: 6.6 Liter V8
Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 42,269 ( undocumented )

“Hero Car” is a term in the classic car enthusiasts world that denotes a vehicle of extreme desire and reverence; a bonafide statement of steel, heritage, and classic styling. Our newest arrival at the Gateway Classic Cars showroom in St. Louis, MO, has certainly earned the rights to this esteemed moniker. The 1979 Pontiac Trans Am 6.6, iconically donned in Starlight Black with gold embleming, was, and still is, the definition of “ Bitchin’ ”. The 2nd generation of GM/Pontiac’s F-Body vehicles hosted an array of impressive body lines, eye-opening powertrain, and new options for over a decade (1970-1981), and this specific arrival is a shining example of why the 2nd generation held such a lengthy tenure. This high-option Trans Am has been lovingly cared for and maintained, boasting a 6.6 litre 403 CID 4 BBL V8 and 3-Speed automatic transmission. A quick decoding of the VIN will lead its next satisfied caretaker on a journey through its production, which took place in the Van Nuys, California plant. From thereon, she was shipped for initial sale to Miller Pontiac-GMC in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Once parked and displayed, it wouldn’t be long before this bird found a new cage to break through. This Trans Am stands aggressively confident in its originality with a mere 42,269 miles. Mild restoration is suspected to have taken place throughout the years, but only with undying respect for maintaining the Pontiac patrimony. The engine bay, trunk, and undercarriage are all rock-solid, flat black, and free of unsightly rust - an absolute rarity for a Midwestern car. The traditional Firebird graphics and decals, unlike many other ever-peeling examples on the market, were done professionally and with respect to original placement and quality. Opening the door to this sought-after carriage will display a world of options to the trained Trans Am expert. Brushed aluminum rally gauge panel, custom Hobnail bucket seats, and tilt steering wheel make up just a few of the vehicle’s adornments. Further inspection will reveal modernization in the form of a USB/CD-compatible Kenwood head unit, allowing the driver to revel in glory to the sounds of his/her favorite tracks alongside the throaty v8 exhaust note. An NOS spare tire awaits use in the trunk, while the cherished 15x8” Gold Honeycomb rally wheels motivate the vehicle. Additionally, power steering and power brakes are utilized for this build. All glass is in excellent condition. The previous owners have taken it upon themselves to acquire proper and frame-worthy PHS Documentation, as a respectful nod to the excitement that one, possibly you, would and will feel when selecting this commanding example of Pontiac’s brainchild. Idle hands on this offering will pose a dire threat to making her your next addition to the family.

1979 Pontiac Trans Am

1979 Pontiac Trans Am


Engine: Pontiac 400 CID V8
Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
Mileage: 5,673 ( actual )

Looking to expand its clientele, Pontiac decided to up the ante a bit by offering an F-Body with an optional Trans Am Performance and Appearance Package.By 1969 the Pontiac Firebird was a mere two years old and had debuted to moderate success. Ten years later the Trans Am had a large fan base. To commemorate that ten-year anniversary, Pontiac decided to offer its first Special Anniversary Trans Am. And when it was all said and done, they had assembled 7,500 of what fans call 'the silver car'. Of those 7,500 Tenth Anniversary Editions, only 1,817 had the L78 6.6L 400ci V8 and the Borg Warner T-10 4-speed. Today this silver Screamin' Chicken sits a true survivor with only 5,674 actual miles registering on its odometer. You would never guess that this Firebird is nearly 40 years old. The body looks absolutely stunning and is covered in the original two-tone paint. At the front of the body is a special massive screaming chicken decal that rests on the hood. Above the decal is the shaker hood that has the lettering T/A 6.6 on either side. On the roof you will find correct, mirrored T-tops. At the back of the car is a slick rear spoiler and more Trans Am badging. Pop the hood on this Firebird and you'll be greeted by an original L78 6.6L 400ci V8. Due to emission standards, 1979 was the final year that Pontiac offered all of its larger displacement engines. Bolted to the 400 cubic inch Pontiac V8 is the original 4-speed Borg Warner Super T-10 transmission, which sends power to a 3.23 Posi-traction rear end. Spent gases travel down the original headers to and out the original dual exhaust. Power 4-wheel disc brakes are responsible for slowing the Firebird, while the entire car rides on special 15x8 cast aluminum wheels that have been wrapped in Goodyear Polysteel Radials. Open the door to this Trans Am and you'll find a very well preserved silver leather interior that features firm bucket seats. This is where you'll also see the odometer that reads 5,675 miles.

1979 Pontiac Trans Am


Engine: 455 CID
Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
Mileage: 15,850 ( undocumented )

With only 10,000 miles on a rebuilt and blueprinted 455 cubic inch V8, a four-speed manual transmission, and 3.73:1 gears, this Trans Am means business! You may have seen it featured on Pinks All Out a few years back and has since been treated to this stunning twisted copper colored 3M wrap that helps this car to stand out from the crowd. The 1979 Pontiac Trans Am has become an American icon with its timeless design and quality. This Trans Am specifically has taken the traits of the original and amplified them to make it even better! The 455 big block packs a serious punch and is capable of keeping up with the best of them. If a little extra power is needed though, a 75 shot of nitrous awaits in the trunk and, with the simple press of a button, the close race turns into a Trans Am victory! The sub-frame connectors stiffen the body for much better cornering ability and the traction bars eliminate axle wrap and plant the power where it needs to be. The 3.73 gear ratio is an excellent cruising gear and makes the choice simpler when determining which car to take out for your weekend drive. The long tube headers, X-pipe and mufflers allow for easy breathing and a superior sound over stock. Whether your plan is a day at the drag strip, auto cross, or long weekend trip this Trans Am will not disappoint! This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom.

1976 Pontiac Trans Am

1976 Pontiac Trans Am


Engine: 455 CID H.O V8
Transmission: T-10 4-Speed Manual
Mileage: 57,461 ( actual )

For sale in the Nashville show room is a red hot 1976 Pontiac Trans Am, powering this 1976 Pontiac Trans Am for sale is a 455CID V8 that is tossing power to the ground like beads at a New Orleans festival. Backing this 455Cid V8 is a four speed Manual transmission. This car is the sheer embodiment of 70’s muscle cars with a rumble that and growl that’s fit for a dragstrip and rocket ship, power at the tip of your toes and a force at your fingertip. The exterior color is the famous Buccaneer red that has the classic Trans Am logo across the hood. If you’re over 40 you’ll have a profound appreciation for its look of brute strength and power. If you’re looking to help the world, save emissions and are looking to save the ozone layer this powerful beast of a machine just might be for you! Because you can out run any Prius chasing you. Returning for what was to be its final season (again?) was the optional 455 V8, still labeled in H.O. guise. Once again, the 455 was packaged, including the confidence inducing semi-metallic front brake pads. As a 4-speed manual was still the required transmission with the big motor, California cars were not allowed this combination (nor any other 4-speeds, for that matter). The single exhaust system was unchanged from 1975 and exited through dual tail pipes with chrome splitters. The rear bumper was also covered in a soft urethane with a depression in the center, eliminating the false bumper bar. This theme made the Trans Am a much more complete looking car. The tail lamps were still of body color and stretched from the corner of the rear end to the license plate recess. With all the muscle cars available to you the Trans Am is as American as apple pie and “Sweet Home Alabama.” Features on this 1976 Pontiac Trans Am for sale include: air conditioning, am/fm radio, power steering, Power brakes, horse power, tilt wheel, seat belts, vinyl interior, radial tires that are wrapping rally wheels to boot and much more.

It was Pontiac's top trim package on the Pontiac Chieftain, with later generations built on longer wheelbases, and serving as the foundation platform for the Pontiac Bonneville.

1973 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400

1973 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400


Engine: 400
Transmission: Turbo Hydromatic 400
Mileage: 82,436 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this excellent 1973 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 Ram Air. This Formula 400 Firebird checks off all the necessary boxes to make this a worthy car for the first time “Muscle Car” purchaser looking to have fun, or the long-time collector looking to add to an existing collection. The first box to be checked off is “appearance”. How appealing does it look? At first glance, the Navajo Orange is an eye catcher and combines well with the beige bucket interior. The front end looks aggressive and sucks you in with dual snorkel functioning “Ram Air” hood. The sleek, bold styling of the car exudes a classy confident attitude. The second box is “performance”. This Firebird performs just as good as it looks. It boasts a 400 cubic inch numbers matching motor, along with a 4-barrel carburetor and “Ram Air” option. All you need to do is step on the gas to awaken the sleeping giant. Power is transferred from the engine through a Turbo Hydromatic 400 automatic transmission to a 10 bolt posi-traction rear end which now houses 3.42 gears. The third box is “value”. To some this may be the most important box. How do you determine value or forecast value in a car? There are several factors that affect this category: two of which are already checked off. Let’s think in the terms of supply and demand. In 1973, Pontiac only produced 4,622 Formula 400 cars. Many fell victim to the crusher or salvage yard. Some were torn apart and key authentic components were replaced with non-original parts. Others are parked in non-operating condition and rusted out in a field, barn, or garage. Very few of the 4,622 that were produced made it to 2018 with original equipment that were also kept in prestigious condition. Of the 4,622 Formula 400 vehicles, only 533 had the functioning “Ram Air” hood. Yes, this is one of the 533 born with that very special option. Another factor of determining value is, “can you prove the car is what it is?” Yes, with documentation, VIN, data plate, and number stampings, which this 73 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 Ram Air has. Lastly, with Camaro’s fetching top tier prices, the focus has turned to what the next “Muscle Car” to ignite is. Buying trends are already showing favorable promise to the second-generation Firebirds. When you take all of this into consideration, this car is a trustworthy investment. Most of all, you can hop in and enjoy cruising it while your investment appreciates. You can place a big check mark in this box! Options include (cold) Air Conditioning, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Raised White Letter Radial Tires, Rally Wheels, and Posi Traction.
