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

A factory-black 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with proper V8 power and an A/C interior is a true dream car. And if youve been watching the market, you know there may not even be enough time to dig into the details before such a well-priced example gets snatched up. The trim tag tells us this was born a Starlight Black Trans Am, and so you know it has a perpetual sense of cool. And as you look at the whole package, it shows a car that keeps everything in good balance. The gloss of the paint, the fitting of the body panels, and the newer decals with iconic hood bird - they all looks good to give you a car youll love to look at, but never be too nervous to drive. Of course, you also love this because the Trans Am arguably knew how to be the best-looking F-body around. The shaker hood, full factory body kit, and full-width rear spoiler made these look speedy. And the gold snowflake wheels were both style and substance. The factory blackout package continues inside. The door panels, carpeting, dash, and upholstery all have the clean look of a respected coupe. This keeps a very stock style presentation, right down the Delco AM/FM radio and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. These Trans Ams were built for the driver, and so you have a high-back bucket seat, armrest center console, and grippy sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the T/As hallmark machine-turned dash panel with full gauge package, including the cool tach/clock combo. Underneath the hood is an unmistakable look of a Pontiacs blue block V8. This 400 cubic-inch always looks good with a four-barrel carb and the shaker on top. This is from the years the shaker was only used for display, but because of this setup, we also all know the real thing is a quick upgrade for those who want to add some easy performance to this already potent V8. Its a well-maintained package that fires up nicely, and it makes a terrific soundtrack from the newer dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. Out on the road, these are known for their handling, including sway bars front and rear. Plus, you have great anytime driving features, like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs. This T/A is impressive for its correct items, working features, and that its all available right now for such a nice price. So you know you cant miss this deal. Call today!!!
