Lot Details
c. 1978 Pontiac Trans Am
Chassis no. 2FS87N216410
For those of us of a certain age, running errands for Big Enos Burdette in a black Trans-Am Special Edition with a huge gold bird on the hood has a certain bad-boy charm. For Burt Reynolds, it became the basis for the trifecta of Smokey and the Bandit movies which made Cletus, Fred, and Buford T. Justice household names.

Need backup while bootlegging an 18-wheeler full of Coors Light out of Texarkana? Need to lose some county mounties and blow off some Smokey Bears in the process? 10-4 good buddy, here's your car.

A straight and clean example fitted with the rare and desirable manual transmission, this Trans-Am shows low miles on its odometer and is sure to engender hooliganism in a new owner.

As Jerry Reed sang in Bandit's theme song, "East Bound and Down", "put that hammer down and give 'em hell!"
