    My car came with four wheel disc and the 403 Olds engine what is weird is that the valve covers are aluminum and finned that say holly olds so im guessing its rare but the body by fisher plate has the code ws4 maybe someone changed it to the ws6 i dont know but the rear calipers are wayyyyyyy!!! Expensive!!!

    it has edelbrock rpm manifold\headers holly carb\ nitrous work 50-300 hp nitrous system

    If I'm not mistaken the WS-4 was the prelude to the WS-6. I have had a 77 Esprit, 77 T/A and an 83 T/A. I've got my eye on a 76 Formula that lives up the road from me. The guy is selling for $750, needs work but is in decent shape. I just need to keep working on the wife.

    About 15 yrs ago I had a 79 firebird formula with a built 403 /t350 headers & duel exhaust . I loved that car . it would shirp the tire's going into 3rd at 118mph and I ran it next to my buddy riding his 87 gsxr1100 and he had me a 145 on his speedo . I think it a 2:71 geared rear axle . still got good mpg on trips and it was comfortable on long trips . Most of the decent formulas and TA 's are fetching $4000+ around here . I would like to get another one but I have 7 rigs at my house already . I can only dream . My dad has a 78 Ta thats yellow w / black interior and he built a 68 pontiac 428 motor .40 over w 6x heads and a ram air 3 cam , offy 360 manifold , 800 cfm q jet . That car is a stump puller and hella fast . I feel for that 10 bolt rear axle . It's gonna go one of these days:haha:

    Best bro has a 78 Trans am Bandit edition. 400/th350. Lots of rust. Before we tore it apart it was on around half compression, no exhaust, passenger seat literally was held in place by sitting on frame.

    Currently is torn apart and being restored.

    wasted a gold series t top 6.6 auto 3.08 posi little over a year ago, shedder got it

    had no camera and didnt know where to list it
    i saved the dash panel guages and stuff that about it
    and i have some 79 camaro parts around here a shifter assembly for auto, and spoiler set and some other things in the attic

    a friend of mine has had a million of these cars and the last one was a 79 t/a very shar white with light blue interior and pretty badass but he sold it, for only around 5k with a fresh 383 in it and fiberglass hood and all.



    i dont like these cars much theyre too damn heavy and theyre leaf spring junk, they took care of all those problems in 82,
    thats why im keeping my 82 t/a

    good luck

    I had a 78 bandit special. They all had the gold pinstripes on them. did somebody take them off that car? Do you read Hipo pontiac mag? You can get an original stripe/decal kit from somebody who addvertises in there. My car even had the "special edition" dash plaque. Traded it for a 69 vette!

    my best friends got a 80 turbo, and the turbo and tranny was blown, so we took it out, put it aside, and now its got a 350 vette motor in it all built up with roller rockers, etc....should be pretty sweet when its done
