Its probably impossible to talk about this 18,869 original mile 1977 Trans Am without mentioning Smokey and the Bandit, but the fact of the matter is that these were still true muscle cars. Unlike posers such as the Mustang II and even its stable-mate, the Camaro, the guys at Pontiac were still building legitimate horsepower. Of course, you couldnt bring a knife to a gun fight dressed in all that brilliant gold trim, so the T/A definitely brought the thunder. With just two owners from new, including the current owner of nearly 22 years who put just 10,000 miles on it during that time, this is a brilliantly presented Trans Am. It had a complete cosmetic freshening several years ago that included new code 19 Starlight Black paint and fresh decals. It looks as dazzling today as Burts car did rolling out of the trailer, causing Jerry Reed to exclaim, Ho ho ho! The finish is lustrous, the reproduction decals from Phoenix Graphix are exact in every way, and as a low-mileage car, the original body panels are super straight. Go ahead, look at this car and tell me you cant see it spinning its tires all over those southern highways. This one also sports a black leather interior, which is 100% original and 100% amazing. With just some gentle use marks on the leather, the seats are just as comfortable as they look. The original carpets are still dark, the door panels show virtually no wear, and the dash pad hasnt been baked by the sun over the past three and a half decades. Engine turned panels dress up the instruments, which give a complete view of the everything under the hood, and the console with its shifter for the automatic underneath is beautifully preserved. Im guessing Burts car was an automatic as well, although the soundtrack suggests otherwise. Next to the Corvette, the most potent machine in America was the Trans Am, thanks to the Pontiac 400 cubic inch V8 under the hood. With just over 18,000 original miles, this one has never been opened and runs like a new car. Nicely detailed, but not so the originality was buried, it shows expert maintenance since it was new and most certainly the hands of caring owners who knew they were keepers of a very special flame. In the same way, the transmission has never been opened, just kept in top condition with regular fluid changes. The suspension is surprisingly capable, and there were few other cars better suited to getting out of trouble than the Trans Am. The floors on this one remain shiny, the suspension and brakes are tight, and those beautiful snowflake alloys wear recent 235/60/15 radials. Go back and watch the movie, and I think youll find both the film and the car have aged pretty well. This T/A is a heck of a lot of fun and will make you an instant celebrity anywhere you go.
