1978 PONTIAC FIREBIRD TRANS AM MECHAM MACHO COUPE


Description


This 1978 Pontiac Trans Am Mecham Macho coupe is powered by a date-code-correct L78 400ci 8-cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission. The 1978 T/A retained the look of the 1977 and offered the W72 performance package upgrade with new engine option, and the WS6 option that improved the handling and braking to engines output. The history of the Macho Trans Am dates to 1977 when two brothers, Dennis and Kyle Mecham, began modifying cars to restore some of the lost performance brought about by the addition of more emissions equipment. The EPA stepped in because their modified cars did not meet federal emissions criteria for new cars. Performance upgrades were significant, increasing the acceleration and handling. Each car got a unique plaque identifying it as what number car it was. The Mecham Macho upgrades included a better intake manifold, performance distributor, upgraded carburetor, high-performance shocks and springs, and bigger snowflake rims and tires. Overall, it added more horsepower and significantly improved handling. Ordered with nearly every factory performance and comfort option. Equipped with factory air, power windows and locks, tilt and more.
