1969 saw the introduction of the Trans Am performance and appearance package as a factory option which included power, handling and suspension upgrades as well as a more exclusive paint job and some styling accoutrements. Named after the American race series, the Trans Am name would continue to feature throughout the car’s lifespan
This 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has been in the UK since May 2015, owned and enjoyed by enthusiast owners
According to its accompanying original build-sheets, the car was supplied new in California by Grissom Pontiac in Modesto and was well specified as a T-Top roof model (hence detachable tinted glass roof panels) with the 6. 6-litre (403ci) V8 engine, Solar Gold paintwork, factory A/ C, custom velour trim and the all-important (but rare) Special Performance Package (option code WS6) - developed by Herb Adams as a handling option for the Trans Am, including a larger diameter rear sway bar, tighter ratio steering box, 15x8-inch Snowflake wheels, additional frame bracing, as well as other suspension changes
This car has a lovely originality, obviously being well-cared for over its 44 years, and is still in excellent condition throughout; pleasingly accompanied by its original Pontiac build-sheets, a host of invoices and its factory jack and spare wheel
Classic American muscle cars have an indisputable appeal to UK car enthusiasts, with their no-nonsense approach to power and speed, they offer great value, always with a strong enthusiast-following for parts and advice, plus a good dose of that Hollywood movie screen magic in which to indulge
