This 1978 Pontiac Firebird was delivered new to Don Danskin Pontiac-Cadillac-GMC in Marshalltown, Iowa, and features the Esprit trim package as well as power windows, assisted brakes, air conditioning, a center console, Rallye II wheels, a Hurst T-top roof, and a Hurst shifter. The car is finished in black-on-black and is powered by a 305ci V8 backed by a four-speed manual transmission. The current owner acquired the car in 2016 and has driven 2k miles since. This Firebird is now offered on dealer consignment with roof panel storage bags, owner’s literature, service manuals, a build sheet, and a clean Washington title in the current owner’s name. The body is finished in black with gold accent striping and features removable tinted-glass roof panels that are pictured both fitted and removed in gallery photographs. The exterior of the Esprit model included bright wheel arch and side moldings, and Firebird and Esprit script badges on the C-pillars and front fenders. Front and rear mudflaps have also been fitted. A Deluxe interior and additional noise insulation were standard with the Esprit model, and this example is trimmed in black cloth and features high-backed bucket seats with shoulder restraints. Equipment includes a center console, a Hurst shifter, air conditioning, power windows, courtesy lamps, and a push-button AM/FM radio. Woodgrain appliqué accents the steering wheel and instrument panel, which houses a combination gauge with an integrated analog clock, and a 100-mph speedometer with a five-digit odometer showing 16k miles. 2k miles have been driven under current ownership, we believe this to e the actual mileage. The 305ci V8 breathes through a two-barrel carburetor and produced 145 horsepower with 245 lb-ft of torque when new Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission and a rear differential with 3.08:1 gearing. KYB dampers have been fitted, and corrosion is noted on some suspension and exhaust components. The build sheet and factory literature, service manuals, roof panel storage bags, and a spare wheel are included in the sale.
