Pontiac Trans Am 1978 Description

1978 Trans Am Special edition, Pro Touring, Resto Mod, original Y82 (actual special edition car)all PHS docs and build sheet included. I have owned the car since 1991 in 2011 it was completely taken apart and set on a rotisserie and soda blasted from there went a 5 year frame off restoration. Best of everything was used. Every part on the car was either replaced or rebuild to better than new specs. Car was just finished this year only 700 break in miles has been put on it. I built the car to show quality but with all modern day features and driveablity. Car was built new at the Norwood Ohio Plant and stayed in Ohio since new I am the 3rd owner of it the title says 69000 miles. Car is listed locally so I reserve the right to end auction early. Any questions about the car feel free to call 740-403-6031 Feel free to come see the car before the auction ends. There is nothing to hide about this car at all. Please no low ball offers I am not desperate to sell this it is a six figure restoration. Clean and clear Ohio title in hand.I am going to attempt to highlight what has been done to the car I am sure I will miss some things.
