1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am: The Star of "Smokey and the Bandit"

Burt Reynolds may have been the star, but it was the black 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am that stole the show. There's nothing like seeing that Starlight Black Pontiac Firebird Trans Am emerge from the back of the Bandit's truck.

Windy City Warriors

From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

Were not going to get hung up on how rare a 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans AM is (fairly) or how much money was spent on this build (a lot). What we are going to talk about is that this spectacular 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans AM resto-mod is one of the finest F-body builds weve seen in a very long time, a car thats fast, comfortable, and totally sorted with modern hardware introduced during the cars rotisserie restoration. Need a car to cruise in AND win some trophies with? This is it! The early 2nd generation Firebird Trans AM shape lends itself rather well to the pro-touring/restomod treatment since it was already long, lean, and low. Finished in beautiful Cameo White paint, this one isnt going to be able to stay out of sight for long, and by adding a set of 71 blue stripes down the center and a mini-chicken on the hood, along with the requisite body mods, it has the iconic Trans Am look thats very appealing. The guys who built it are professionals at the top of their game, so finish quality is exemplary, with great gaps, a deep shine, and no notable demerits in the appearance department. We love the contrasting hood scoop that makes it look like the engine is doing something special under the hood (Spoiler alert: it is), and the factory spoilers, vents, and nose all give it a predatory stance. Not to mention the DSE mini-tubs out back that do a good job of scaring away any pesky imports at the red light. New bumpers, trim, glass, lights, and weather seals were added during the build, and even the parts that were chrome from the factory were replaced, not restored or painted, so it all looks brand new, especially considering there are only 309 miles on the build. You probably havent driven a vintage F-body that looks this fresh since the early 70s, and that means these guys got it right. Inside this Trans Am received a big makeover as well, featuring modern upgrades and slick options. Other than the bolt-in 6-point roll cage, the biggest change inside is a pair of leather Corbeau bucket seats with 4-point harnesses that are a lot more supportive than the originals, yet they look right at home in this resto-mod. The engine-turned trim in the dash and original gauges are long gone, replaced by a custom carbon-fiber inlay thats filled with Auto Meter units, theres a very cool blacked-out 3-spoke steering wheel, and the custom AM/FM/AUX audio system is an absolute banger inside the cabin. The center console is tricked-out too, housing a set of auxiliary gauges and a B&M F-body shifter thats an easy reach from the drivers cockpit. Obviously, everything is new, including the dash, the headliner, the plush carpets and mats, and even the rear seat, and again, fit and finish are excellent. Vintage A/C blows nice and cold thanks to the R134a refrigerant and the restorers even thought to install an AutoVox rearview mirror/back-up camera to account for some of the muscle cars blind spots. Out back, the trunk is nicely finished and spacious enough to account for most travel arrangements. If youre not impressed yet, one look at the engine bay and youre sure to be hooked. Powering this beauty is a 6.0L Twin Turbo LQ4, pro-built and fitted snugly into the detailed engine bay. The very impressive build list is too long to be fully catalogued here (give us a call and well break it down completely), but some of the highlights of the engine include 317 heads, Lunati valve springs, Speed Pro pistons, Turbonetics turbos, a BTR Stage 2 cam, and a Mishimoto oil cooler just to name a few. Sitting under that air scoop it looks like a mad scientists creation, but it all fits together wonderfully and the result is an absolute rocket of a car thats remarkably dependable too. Keeping the whole show nice and cool is giant Griffin aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, while the throaty soundtrack is provided via a custom Hooker 3-inch X-pipe dual exhaust system. Its putting out big power, but the built 4L80E 4-speed automatic transmission with a TransGo shift kit doesnt seem to mind. And true to form as a Trans Am, this one loves to go around corners, complements of fully adjustable upper A-arms/Ridetech lower A-arms up front, a Detroit Speed quadralink in the rear, Heidts subframe connectors, coil-over shocks all around, and a Ridetech front sway bar. Yeah, its legit. Its also fitted with an AGR Performance power steering box and power CPP 4-wheel disc brakes that give it the stopping power it demands. The Detroit Truetrac rear end is fitted with 3.55 gears on a limited slip and Strange 9 axles, so it has no trouble hooking up, but with that overdrive transmission, it cruises at 80 MPH spinning very manageable RPMs. Nice! The hunkered-down suspension looks fantastic, especially framing those gorgeous and staggered 18-inch US Mag rally wheels, which are wrapped in brand new 275/35/18 front and 335/30/18 rear Toyo Proxy R888 performance tires. This car is almost entirely new from end to end (only 309 miles on the build) and is filled with the best of everything. With performance, comfort, and style in equal measure, perhaps the most shocking thing about this car is its relatively affordable price tag when considering what it would take to duplicate these stunning results.
