Car description

1978 Pontiac Trans Am, original unrestored very original with 90% original paint. 1st year for the very rare Solar Gold, as well as 1st year for the WS6, with original pontiac W72 400, carburetor numbers matching, factory 4 speed car however the transmission is not numbers matching. This was a factory air car and the compressor has been removed, blower and heat work fine, delay wipers, lamp group with map lights. This is an unusual combination as in 78 the WS6 was not forced on the W72 4 speed cars and was relatively unknown in its first year, more rare is having a California production vehicle with original Solar Gold paint as the California plant used a water based type paint due to emissions production standards which did not hold up...in fact Pontiac ceased Solar Gold production at that plant before the 1978 year completed, yet this vehicle was late enough in production to have the black paint on the tail lamps at later year production change for 1978. The vehicle has been recently serviced with carburetor tune and runs extremely well and drives tight and correct as a WS6 should, nearly all components are original, however, Koni shocks on rear from the 80's. Factory radio not present. The car was undercoated and has held up well, floors all solid. Passenger front fender and half of front bumper cover repainted, looks like possibly a slight front end tap may have occured some time ago. If your looking for a correct, real W72 WS6 4 speed, thats original with patina to prove it, you'll be hard pressed to find another like this one. Not present in these photos are factory reproduction floor mats, and new factory reproduction lugs nuts. The original lug nuts come with the car. I have PHS records and the original build sheet that the prior owner found in the car, in addition to the matching PHS build sheet.
I can text you video of the vehicle running if you contact me. Also, I have more detailed photos I can email you and can highlight some imperfections. These photos are not the best, I need to uncover the car and get some better photos.
This car was gone over thoroughly as well as apprised, the reserved is less than the appraisal value. If you have questions you may phone 610-905-9527. Payment in full and cleared prior to release of vehicle. Buyer responsible for all shipping arrangements and costs.
Thank you.

I should add that the vehicle had carburetor rebuild (factory specs) and new Ames factory reproduction seat belts installed (due to bad tensioners in the original belts) less than one year ago.
