78 Trans Am

By piaboy

In the LA/OC area we have several self serve junk yards. There was a 78 trans am in there that appeared stock. It was a pontiac 400/automatic car. Could you still get a 400 pontiac and automatic in 78? i thought all the automatics where olds 403's

in 78 you could get them either way with a 400. You could not however geta 403 witha 4 speed either year. In 79 though, it was a "get rid of inventory year" No big bores were manufactured. The 400's were mated to the 4spd only and 403's were all mated to TH350's. That was only true in 79.
