When you think of the Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am, you probably picture a black car with the iconic gold decals and matching gold trim and accents. This was not only a common color combination for multiple generations of Trans-Am, it was also the color of the movie car in the wildly popular 1970s film Smokey and the Bandit.
This 1978 Pontiac Trans-Am that was recently listed for sale on Bring-A-Trailer is a nice change of pace from the preferred black and gold Trans-Ams, in our opinion. It has been repainted in its Martinique Blue exterior color and received replacement trim and decals, as well, doing this great color combo justice. It has also had its interior retrimmed and had its 403 cubic inch V8 refreshed under previous ownership, receiving a new carb, water pump, cooling fan, alternator and more. The three-speed automatic transmission is a replacement unit as well.
Currently showing 96,000 miles on the odometer, this beautiful Pontiac Trans-Am is being offered with documents from Pontiac Historical Services and a clean California title. At the time of this writing, bidding sits at $5,500 with a week left before the auction times out. If you’ve been in the market for a clean Pontiac Trans-Am, this car just may worth a look. In fact, it’s hard to look away..
