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

1978 PONTIAC TRANS AM SOLAR GOLD! Restored with all new brakes, brake lines, and stainless exhaust system. Originally a 400, It has received a period-correct Pontiac 455 HO. The engine has been rebuilt with a more aggressive camshaft and long-tube headers, producing at least 375 HP. The Turbohydramatic 400 transmission has been rebuilt with a shift kit and a B & M quick silver ratchet-action shifter correctly fitted factory center console. The rear end is a 3.42 safe-t-track (Pontiacs name for posi-traction) with all new axle bearings and seals. It has a new 4 core-radiator to accommodate added HP. The exterior virtually flawless paint and body, deep lustrous shine, all decals, trim and chrome are like brand new--a real head turner everywhere it goes. PERFECTLY RUST FREE in, out and under--a tribute to its being built in dry Van Nuys, California, and spending most of its life in dry Las Vegas, NV. The seats, carpet, door panel, headliner are all 100% original and in beautiful condition--no rips or tears! Look like less than 2 years old, not 40 years old! Even the factory original trunk mat, floor jack and vintage space-saver spare are there in the rust-free trunk and in good shape! It has factory A/C converted to R134, power steering, power brakes (disk front/drum rear), and perfect original snowflake rims with all new tires. 1977-78 are the iconic, ultra-collectable Bandit Trans Am years everyone desires. This Bandit gold edition has won several shows, looks stunning, sounds mean and drives great (nice, flat cornering!). It has 41000 original miles and only a little than 2000 miles since the rebuild in 2003. (A/C needs a recharge, adjust/replace back-up lamp switch, etc.). -Vehicle is on consignment and at our clients home -Please Call First and talk to a rep at 231-468-2809 EXT 1 -Showroom is by appointment only Please Call -If you would like a FREE Listing please visit our consignment page or call
