1978 Pontiac Trans Am 6.6 Liter 400 V8
I thought you might like a look at this very nice 1978 Pontiac Trans Am. This car is in truly remarkable condition, with only 81,xxx original miles. On the exterior, you'll find a fresh coat of paint in the original color and a new set of decals. The interior of the car is still original and has been extremely well-preserved. Under the hood, you'll find the numbers matching 6.6 Liter 400 V8, topped with a four barrel carb. This car is very well equipped as well, with air conditioning, tilt wheel, disc brakes, power windows, etc. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
