1978 Pontiac Trans Am T/A 6.6 Litre (Ban_One)

Last updated Feb 5, 2012  

Photo of a 1978 Pontiac Trans Am T/A 6.6 Litre (Ban_One)


Famous Movie Car from Smokey and the Bandit! All original with a Pontiac 400ci. 6.6 Litre V8!! And CB-Radio Equiped!! Top speed 135+mph
(Produces 325 lb-ft of Torque at 1600 rpms)
Over 1,800 were manufactured in 1978 and only a good Few remain...


The 1978 Trans Am is considered the top of the line Firebird. The Firebird-Trans Am came out with all the side spoilers and front spoilers, along with the rear spoiler, and with a hood shaker and side air ducts located on the front fender on both the drivers and passengers side. They came out with the Pontiac 400, or Olds 403. However, the Olds 403 did not offer the amout of power the Pontiac 400 gave. The Pontiac 400 was a faster and more powerful V8! Its Torque output and Horsepower output was far greater! Pontiac sure knows how to build their engines!! Putting the 1978 Trans Am with the Pontiac 400 to go from 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds!! (Only a few Trans Am's in 1978 made it out with the Pontiac 400, it was considered rare to have the 400 in your 1978 Model Trans Am)
