Gateway Classic Cars' Houston Showroom is proud to offer this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am. Changes for 1978 were slight, with a switch from a honeycomb to a crosshatch pattern grille being the most obvious from the outside. The engineers also revised the compression ratio in the 400ci through the installation of different cylinder heads with smaller combustion chambers. This increased power by 10% for a total of 220 during the 1978–79 model years. The 400/403 options remained available until 1979, when the 400 CID engines were only available in the 4-speed transmission Trans Ams and Formulas.

Shown in a clean and recent midnight blue paint job that shows very well. This original 400 CID V8 WC code TA has a new intake manifold newly rebuilt carburetor. The 6.6L motor is mated to a turbo hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic transmission that has a B&M transpack & 2500 rpm stall converter, so she is ready to ride and hit the streets.

The 400 CID V8 was rebuilt & bored over .030 over & had several goodies added to it at that time. Including parts such as; forged pistons, a Crane cam, performance intake manifold, a 750cfm Holley carburetor, Flowtech long tube headers, & Flowmaster super 40 mufflers. The car has new rear tires with less than 50 miles on them as well as other maintenance items like a new power steering pump, hoses & gearbox, new brake calipers, wheel cylinders, alternator & valve covers.

Options include: AM/FM radio, cd player, power brakes, power steering, tilt wheel, seat belts. For more information on this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am call the Houston Showroom at 832-243-6220 or email houston@gatewayclassiccars.com
