This 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Y88 Special Gold Edition car really has everything you want. After all, it has its correct bold SE look inside and out, T-tops, V8 power, A/C interior, and it's even the first year for the WS6 handling package. So if you're looking to boldly represent an era, you know this is just too good to pass up.

There's something very distinctive about the factory-correct Solar Gold. It created one of the coolest coordinating packages around when combined with the darker gold hood bird and golden snowflake alloy wheels. So it was sort of like a custom car straight from the factory. This one amps up the appeal because it's also a low mileage machine with the documented odometer showing this car has averaged less than 2k miles annually. The finish shows some of the car's age, which gives it just the right hint of survivor-style attitude (and a perfect segue for you to talk about the low mileage.) More than just the history, this has all the elements we love. The widebody appearance is pure aggression, there are large flares for each fender, and the spoiler covers the rear from end-to-end. And everyone loves the attitude that comes from the side scoops and the shaker hood.

Inside the golden camel tan interior is a great complementing color to the exterior. It keeps the vintage vibe going, right down to the button-top bucket seatbacks. But this one is also a nice place to spend some time because it has the features you really want. There's cold-blowing air conditioning, an armrest center console, tilt steering column w/sport wheel, and the AM/FM/CD stereo means upgraded driving music. So you'll love taking out the T-tops, tuning in your favorite music, and cranking up the A/C as you go for the ideal classic coupe drive.

The 400 cubic-inch V8 is year-correct suffix code and believe to be original to the car. It has an authentic appearance right down to the decals. And while the shaker hood might be a display piece, it's just sooooo cool. The V8 inhales deeply with a correct-style Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with subtle sweet sound out of the Flowmaster dual exhaust. The Trans Am has a reputation for not only being quick, but also as one of the best all-around handling sports cars of its day. The WS6 option is a big part of that, and the PHS documentation shows this was born with the special handling package. Plus, this one has all-around comfort with a smooth shifting TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the WS6's sway bars front & rear.

The sale comes with the owner's manual and build receipts. Plus, the PHS documentation confirms the desirable Y88 and WS6 packages. This is a golden Pontiac treat that you know you need to get your hands on. Call today!!!
