About “1978 W72 4spd Black”

Very nice clean Black 1978 Trans AM. Found this about 8 miles from my house. It was on Craigslist all summer and no one bought it. So in September I drove up and brought it home to my house. The Motor was rebuilt about 10 years ago and maybe has 3,000 miles on it, but already has a Rod Knock. So I am going to save it and get it back on the road. Pulling out the entire driveline this winter and going through it. Someone put 4.11 gears in it. Not really a good idea. We will be putting this back to stock. And the wheels need to be Snowflakes for sure. So the AR's are coming off!!

I checked in my Note Book for the Specs and all I could find was "FUN"

This is one very nice TA ready for the Bandit Run! Every Mechanical System is New on this car. Engine, Trans, Cluthc, Rear Axle, Brakes and Cooling Systems are all new. Show Quality Paint and Mint Interior make this one you should consider if you are looking for a Turn Key TA. Black, Numbers Matching W72 400, 4spd - What more is there to think about. Drop me a note if you are interested. I live very close to a DAS shipping terminal, so shipping is quite reasonable as I can deliver the car to them and do a Terminal to Terminal shipment. I have done it before and it works great!
