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

Trans Ams are red hot right now. So yes, youre far from the only person who loves a cool T-top Pontiac. So if youre going to get your hands on one for the long term, make sure it has a true distinction. Thats why we love this 1979 10th Anniversary Edition that a sleek look and its numbers-matching V8. These anniversary cars were given a special color called Platinum Silver, and this has the gloss and shine to make sure it draws attention. More than just the special color, these cars are truly special for their overall presentation. The hood has a special version of the screaming hood bird thats exclusive to these cars. Its wingspan is wider than others so it can be a transition to the darker silver accent color that runs from the shaker hood, around the doors, and ends at the pinstripe behind the T-tops. And speaking of the pinstripe, this red and black dual line is used to outline just about every detail on this coupe. This was truly a unique package that was expensive to coordinate in the 1970s, and no factory likely would even try to attempt it today. It takes time, money, and a detailed mind to keep this car looking correct, so its amazing such a complete classic like this is also still so affordable. Inside, the silver leather interior is a standout hallmark of this special edition car. You even have the black and red accenting just like the exterior pinstripe, and there are other cool details, like the Firebird logo stitched into the doors! So with this distinct presentation looking so good, youll be especially happy to take out the glass T-tops and share this full uniform package with the world. When you do, you get to feel as cool as you look thanks to R134a air conditioning. In fact, this comes loaded with all the best features, including power windows, power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, center console, and cruise control. The stereo has even been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD unit that features a USB input and Bluetooth. The driver gets a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, and beyond that, the dash is framed in the T/As hallmark machine-turned aluminum panel. So this really offers a terrific sports car experience. The 403 cubic-inch V8 is the numbers-matching motor to the coupe. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this V8 develops plenty of torque. And the quad-tip exhaust give the V8 plenty of bass. These 10th anniversary cars were special machines loaded with the best features, including the desirable WS6 option. That means a terrific handling package that was the envy of its day. It includes sway bars front & rear as well as four-wheel disc brakes. With the cool and correct turbo-style alloy wheels carrying wide BF Goodrich T/A rubber, this is an all-around terrific driving package. This is the head-turning T-top classic that was built to be special from day one. So to get such a distinctive classic for an obtainable price means you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
