Default my 78 TA project

well in the thread that duffer had about his supra he alluded to me having something to share. well I made it back safe after meeting him luckily I got a garage to work in now. I will post pics tonight but i will say that she needs a little TLC and love but other then that she will be screaming sooner or later. I will post a couple hints as to what she is she has a 400 pontaic longblock or at least will when it gets shipped. is a 2 door and rear wheel drive. The best part is that it is only surface rust so a wire wheel and some por 15 and I will be in business

I will post pics tonight and I will say yes it is a 400 and yes th350 but no to the body. I am a F body guy at heart. well it is now my 4th child lol. it is a 78 Ttop trans am that is a true W72. that is mayan red with a black interior. I know this is a bonneville site but hey at least it is a pontiac. It is a auto and will have a 400 and spare trans I found yesterday in the local yard out of a 77. The car will get a stock rebuild for now and I will find a 400 block that will be going to the local machine shop and set up for a turbo. This will be built in my buddies garage and hoping that I can have her on the road as soon as august.

Tonight I will also post pics and vids of the new exhaust on the bonne. Hope to see no knock when I scan due to clogged cat before. If I have knock The pems will kill that when they go on

Good find.
It'* a diamond in the rough.
You have much to do and it will cost you time and $$$$. Good luck finding parts. It'* a rare beast now.

Pick a better title for the subject and keep us updated on your progress.

Feel free to ask me any questions and I'll try and answer. I know that car like the back of my hand.
