vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this exceptionally nice and documented 1978 Trans Am with only 33. 20 original miles. The market on the 1977 and 1978 Trans Am's is absolutely red hot right now and this example is priced to sell. Very low mileage and original examples of the second generation Trans Am's are especially difficult to find and draw a huge premium in the current market. This Trans Am has had only two owners since new and everything on the car works. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car. but also the clear Ohio title. pictured below. showing the mileage as "Actual. "

This Pontiac looks outstanding. runs great. and is an awesome driver. I have personally put over 50 miles on the car and during that time it was completely reliable and a pleasure to drive. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Trans Am that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. This Trans Am is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combination of Chesterfield Brown (69) with Gold decals over Camel Cloth interior (62B). This is the correct and original color scheme as verified on the trim tag and window sticker. both pictured below. Please peruse all of the photos. video. and other information below to get a true sense of clean and nice this Trans Am really is.

There is a wealth of original documentation that comes with this Trans Am. Most importantly to verify all of the highly sought-after and rare options. a copy of the original build sheet is included with the car and pictured below as well as the original window sticker. Also included is the original owners manual. the original invoice from August of 1978. the dealer copy of the all the options ordered. odometer statement from Schappe Pontiac when the car was sold new showing it had 19 miles. the warranty book showing the original owners name. Goodyear tire booklet. the 1978 Pontiac Maintenance booklet. the rust prevention (undercoating) warranty sheet. the 1978 Pontiac Consumer Information booklet. and even the small original tag that hung off the hazard light switch when the car was new on the showroom floor.

We purchased this Trans Am from the second owner. which is verified by the accompanying documentation and paper trial. According to the previous owner. he purchased the car from a retired Air Force pilot named Gove Cline. who was the original owner. Mr. Cline purchased the car brand new from Schappe Pontiac in Madison. WI. His name appears on many of the original documents including the invoice from Schappe Pontiac and the original warranty booklet.   Mr. Cline owned the car from 1978 until 2013 when it was purchased by a gentleman in Ohio. There is a Bill of Sale signed by both Mr. Cline and the buyer here in Ohio. and noratized. dated August 1. 2013. That Bill of Sale notes that the car had 32. 82 miles at that time. The gentleman in Ohio owned the car from 2013 until this year when we purchased the car from him with 33. 63 miles. I personally drove it home and then back to our dealership so the car now has approximately 33. 20 miles on it.

As a side note. this Trans Am is not a dealer auction vehicle.   We hand pick each car after careful inspection.   Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.   We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.   Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.   We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.   If you have a question about the Pontiac. just give us a call.

   

 

condition    

Exterior

The Chesterfield Brown exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos. the paint has a great gloss. deep shine. and nice finish. Both doors open and shut nicely and do not sag. it feels tight and secure like a vault door closing. Often many Trans Am's will have particularly chipped up front ends; this car does not and even the low and vulnerable front spoiler is in great condition as one can see in the photos. The wheels are in good shape with a nice finish and no curb rash. Please note that these are the original Rally wheels finished in body color. which is correct according to the original window sticker. The Goodyear Eagle tires are correctly sized 225/70R15. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. there is one small spot in the paint on the left front fender and a specific photo of the area below. As one would expect from a paintjob with this much age there are some small blemishes around the car that are too small so show up in the photos. but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away.

The trunk is remarkably clean and original. As one can seen in the many photos of the underside. this Trans Am is totally solid. We have also included specific photos of the lower front and rear quarters. rockers. and other areas on the car most prone to rust.

This Trans Am has a stamping on the radiator core support. which is pictured below. The core support shows a "5 24 78" stamp. or May 24. 1978. This stamping would be correct and original as it precedes the car's build date of the second week of July. 1978 (07B). As one can imagine. if this Trans Am had ever sustained even a minor front end collision this part would have been repaired or replaced. The original stampings are great to see in tact.

Window Date Codes

Driver: IJ - "I" denotes June and "J" denotes 1978 meaning the driver's side window was made in June of 1978.

Passenger: IJ - "I" denotes June and "G" denotes 1978 meaning the passenger's side window was made in June of 1978.

Rear: IJ - "I" denotes June and "G" denotes 1978 meaning the rear window was made in June of 1978.

Please note that almost all the glass on this car is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of this second week of July. 1978 (07B). Original glass is another good indication of no accident history.

The Trans Am looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

The Camel cloth interior of the Trans Am looks fantastic and is all original. The seats are in excellent condition with no tears. rips. or split seams. Please note that these appear to the original seats and skins. not some cheap aftermarket covers or reproductions. The carpet looks great with no stains. rips. or holes. The dash is in excellent condition with no cracks. fading. or sun damage. The dash bezel looks amazing with a beautiful finish. The original door panels look great with no cracks or splits. and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The package tray looks great with no warping. fading. or sun damage. All of the gauges faces are crisp and the lenses are clear. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever. Please note in the video below how both seat belts operate and retract properly. This is a very common problem on this era "F-Body" and a small. but very important. detail most buyers do not think to check. Trans Am interiors from this era are not known to wear well over time and the excellent condition of this original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care this Trans Am has received throughout its life.

The trunk is original and totally complete with the original space saver spare. inflator bottle. jack. jack base. decals. and trunk mat. Even the very fragile cardboard speaker cover is still present in the trunk under the package tray.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This Trans Am appears to be in great mechanical condition and is ready to be enjoyed. As stated above I have put over 50 miles on the car with absolutely no issues at all. The 400ci engine starts right away every time. idles well. and runs great. It is an exceptional driver that feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph. shifting through all the gears. braking to a stoplight. and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts well. runs great. there are no strange noises or vibrations. and the car performs quite nice overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It runs cool and does not overheat. Also. the engine bay is clean. nicely detailed. and correct as one can see from the photos. The horn works as do all the exterior lights. interior lights. indicators. wipers. and blower for the heater and a/c on all speeds but high. All of the gauges work and even the clock runs. The a/c works and blows cold. One can see the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video below. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.

The Trans Am runs and drives as well as it looks.


Overall Condition

 

Overall. this 1978 Trans Am is in excellent condition and is a true bargain at our asking price. The market on for the second generation Trans Am is very strong right now. particularly for the 1977 & 1978 model years. and very low mileage original cars are much more desirable. Any vehicle can be restored. but a car is only original once and originally cannot be duplicated. This Trans Am is a great value and will only appreciate over time. Someone could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
