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

1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am - 5.3L Fuel Injected LS Engine - Starlight Black - 13 Miles Since Rebuilt - (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this vehicle on a website other than our main website, its possible that only some of our many photographs of this car are not presented due to website limitations. To be sure you access all the photographs, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) With a Fuel Injected LS V8 under the hood, this car will beat The Bandit at his own game! Buford T Justice wont be keeping up with this Black and Gold Trans Am. Finished in Starlight Black (code 19) with a Gold Screaming Chicken on the hood and Gold mesh alloy wheels, this car looks the part. The exterior finish is clean and includes glossy black paint, correct gold logos, and straight body lines. There are no hints as to what is under the hood. Although the LS is a smaller displacement than the original 6.6L V8 that this car rolled off the factory line with, the LS is a more potent engine that has a nice torque band. In addition to smoother power delivery, the LS is fuel injected, so no worrying about the carburetor. Just turn the key and go! The original hood bulge with correct badging has been retained, keeping with the original look of the car. A 4L60E transmission handles gear selection. The engine was painted in the original Pontiac blue, again for the original look despite the upgraded powerplant. The interior is finished in the original black cloth (code 19B) and includes bucket seats, and power windows (code A31). Multiple aftermarket gauges have been neatly installed and are flanked by a carbon fiber look dash panel. The interior shows well all around, and other than the aftermarket gauges and carbon fiber look trim, it has the original look. This is simply a clean TransAm that offers a few nice, well integrated upgrades that give this car a modern touch without being obvious. You dont have to have a total lack of respect for the law to enjoy this car. Although Buford T Justice wouldnt approve of this car, The Bandit certainly would, and were sure it will put a smile on your face!
