Amazing Restoration Completed in 2019
Totally Rebuilt 6.6L Engine - Rare WS6

STK 2780 1978 Pontiac Trans Am WS6

This stunning 1978 Trans Am is a classic example of a 70's muscle car. It was the beneficiary of a full 'on-off' restoration that was completed in 2019. The Pontiac is a numbers matching Trans AM and has Pontiac Historical Society (PHS) documentation. It has taken 'Best of Show/Class' at numerous national events since completion. Our owner is providing receipts, photos, and complete restoration documentation. The car was sold in Florida at Jack Nicholas Pontiac and a copy of the window sticker is included in the sale. The owner states that this is a W72/WS6 Trans AM that is optioned with the 'Trans Am Special Performance Package' that includes a larger diameter front sway bar, steering box w/tighter ratio, 'Snowflake' alloy wheels and 400ci Pontiac engine with 8X heads. From a restoration standpoint, all body components are original except for new wheel flairs, fiberglass front nose and the 'Shaker' on the hood. The Trans AM was stripped bare and fully prepped before a beautiful Martinique Blue finish was applied (original color). All body components were painted before installation and then finished on car. A T/A 'Hood-Bird' accents the shaker hood and 15” Trans Am 'snowflake' wheels mount BFG Radial T/A tires. The fully restored vinyl interior is in new condition including seats, carpeting, new dash, door panels and headliner – plus every other single detail you can imagine. Convenience features include new A/C, digital AM/FM/Bluetooth stereo system w/Kenwood speakers, Nu-Relics power windows, tilt T/A wheel, new tinted glass and fully refreshed factory gauge package. The Z-code 6.6L engine (400ci/Pontiac sourced) was totally rebuilt. It was bored .030 over, fitted with 9.0:1 pistons, a mild flat-tappet Comp Cam (.477/.480 lift), JET Performance tuned Quadrajet and stock distributor. Exhaust is routed through factory manifolds to a Pypes X-pipe exhaust system. Estimated output is 400bhp and is delivered through a built TH350 automatic w/Corvette torque convertor to a rebuilt 10-bolt posi-traction differential with Eaton 3.23:1 gears. The chassis is equipped with all-new disc/drum power brakes, rebuilt power steering and Hotchkis front springs. Virtually every suspension component has been refreshed. This Trans Am has been carefully restored back to better-than-original condition and will be a stunning addition to you Pontiac garage. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
