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

Not many classic muscle cars have come through the decades nearly as well as this 1974 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. This 70s icon is looking good and running strong - its ready to drive and packs serious power under its signature hood in the form of its recently rebuilt, enhanced original powerplant to go along with its undeniable curb appeal. It also holds a unique place in automotive history, as its widely recognized as the last true muscle car offered to the public before the entire segment would become extinct in the face of rising gas prices. The Trans Ams of this era were among the most admired and instantly recognizable cars on the road. Building on the success of the first generation that debuted in the late 60s, Pontiac held true to their We Build Excitement motto and created a lower-slung more aerodynamic look for their second go-round. As a 74, this Trans Am benefitted from some refinements made to the design over the previous few years - its more angled shovel nose front and slotted tail lights being just a couple of the styling cues. This specimen is clad in white paint that presents well - take a lap around the car and you wont find any major blemishes. The dominant Firebird decals gracing the hoods of the early to mid-70s Firebirds were always a focal point and the one here is looking strong, still showing plenty of detail and sharp edges against its white backdrop, and the bold Trans Am lettering on the rear spoiler is also looking sharp. A recently refurbished red vinyl interior sits just inside the doors and its a definite strong point. The front buckets and rear bench seat sport new seat covers and, if anything, look a little more plush and well-padded than when they first left the factory decades ago as they loom above the expanse of spotless red carpeting. This upholstery job was very well done. The center console sitting between the buckets and the quarter trim bracketing the rear seating also have a fresh, new look to them. Just in front of the padded steering wheel, the instrument cluster features a textured silver surface, with the original gauges still sitting easily readable inside. The dash area in its entirety looks good - there are no tears in the dash pad and the vents sitting on either side stand ready to circulate air inside the cabin. This classic Pontiac is plumbed for air conditioning and a compressor is in place under the hood that, with some focused attention, will have this feature back online. The trunk area in back is in very clean shape, with its floor lined with clean carpeting and a new rubber seal sitting under the deck lid. By the time this 74 rolled out, increasingly strict emission standards may have been tightening their grip on performance, but with the recent attention the original engine has received, theres plenty of power on hand now. The numbers-matching powerplant has been bored out an additional 71 cubic inches from the 400 it started with and features a 4-barrel carb on top. It sits in an impressively clean engine compartment with its chrome valve covers and distinctive air cleaner, surrounded by fresh hoses and neatly routed wiring, and it teams with a 3-speed automatic transmission and posi-traction rear end to make up a very road-ready drivetrain. Power steering makes navigating this head-turner a breeze and power brakes offer plenty of stopping ability as it prowls the boulevard on its 17 special edition Trans Am wheels outfitted with Uniroyal tires. This 1974 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am represents the last of a storied era and greets the present looking and running great. Call today!
