Exterior Color Martinique Blue
Interior Color White


This 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has all the best stuff you want - T-tops, proper V8 power four-on-the-floor, and a cool color combo.

We love the look of this one because it has distinction without straying from the best features. After all, the black T/As are for Bandit-level fun, but it's far rarer to see one in its factory-correct Martinique Blue. But you still get all the best pieces, including the hood bird done in blue. So this one is a true icon on wheels... in fact, even the snowflake alloys are iconic. You may find room for improving features if you so desire because perfect cars can command double or triple the price. But the real appeal here is about a car that showcases all the best of the Trans Am from day one. This includes the color-matched Endura front end, shaker hood, factory body kit, and full-width rear spoiler.

The interior continues this car's color appeal. It's a custom setup that gives you plenty more of the deep blue on the plush carpeting, smooth dash, and even details like the seatbelts. But what really has your attention is the distinct white upholstery. Plus, the door panels were done to unite the two-tone color theme. It's a memorable custom style, and the T-tops make sure that the world gets to see it all. This has provisions for some desirable factory features, including air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And you even get the right details, like the T-top storage bags. As a true Trans Am, you have a very driver-oriented experience. There are high-back front bucket seats and a center console in-between. The sports steering wheel, machine-turned dash w/tach, and Hurst shifter are all there to get you ready to hit the road.

Pontiac knows how to make an attractive engine bay. After all, they didn't need to put a shaker on the hood, but it makes the 400 cubic-inch V8 look so much meaner. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet tune as the dual exhaust feeds the Flowmaster mufflers. As you look through the whole engine bay, you see newer components like the plug wires and master cylinder. It's a reminder that these V8 machines also have the simplicity to be a favorite for shade-tree mechanics. The four-speed manual transmission is a great way to control the V8, and the suspension is built for sports car fun, including sway bars front & rear. There are great anytime driving features, like power steering, power brakes, and front discs.

With the colors, the features, and the price, you know this is the kind of deal you need to hurry up and grab. Don't let this cool blue T/A slip away. Call now!
