Originally a gold non SE 1978 Trans Am. This car was my daily driver all through college and college work years. It is a PHS documented Pontiac. Originally ordered by Roughton Pontiac here in VA Beach, VA. Found original build sheet (but torn up some). It does have small rust areas in the rear quarter and front fenders. Doors are pretty good. The steering column has something broken inside not allowing the ignition key to turn to the off position. I have started on that tear down but have not completed.


The current engine is a 79 W72 block with correct 6x-4 heads from that year. The car ran until I parked it. It still has a TH-350 trans with a shift kit installed. Original geared rear end (2.56:1).

Factory Options

Air conditioned car; Power Windows; Tilt steering column; 15X7 snowflakes being sold with car; The rear seats are correct 78 custom camel tan, but the front are custom 77s ( I felt they were a more comfortable seat). I do have the 77 custom rear seats to swap back if necessary.


The car was restored in 94 to be an SE clone. We also added the aftermarket T-Tops that were an in option in the late 70s early 80s. Older Kenwoood aftermarket tape player/radio.
