1979 Pontiac Firebird
Car for sale by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan 49512
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.
In just a few short years, Walter P. Chrysler took his company from an unknown automotive manufacturer to fourth in the industry. Walter Chrysler was a perfectionist with a deep mechanical background. This aspect, probably more than anything, helped to make Chrysler Corporation grow quickly.
Classic Car Overview
Finished in Starlight Black with the appropriate charcoal Firebird decals, this Trans Am has a unique appearance that commands attention. Of course, this Trans Am has the famous screaming chicken on the hood along with the hood bulge. This example rides on 15-inch Cragar S/S wheels finished in the polished alloy. The black interior is in exceptional condition and has been left untouched with the exception of an aftermarket Kenwood radio. The metal trim surrounding the gauge cluster and on the center console is also in good shape and adds a bit of pop to the interior. Accompanying this example is the original window sticker and build sheet.
Introduced in 1970, the second generation Firebird was only available as a fastback coupe. Designed in tandem with the Chevrolet Camaro, the Firebird was a popular halo car for the Pontiac range. Government regulations started killing muscle cars in the 1970s left and right. However, Pontiac kept producing the Firebird Trans-Am with specs that were on the edge of legality, with perhaps some fudging of some horsepower numbers. Of course, Smokey and the Bandit made the late 70s models a highly desired and iconic piece of cultural automotive history that still holds mass appeal to this day.
