Burt Reynolds’ personal Bandit Trans Am going to auction

The black-and-gold Special Edition Pontiac Trans Am will forever be a special vehicle for fans of the Smokey and the Bandit movies. In the late 1970’s the Trans Am stood as the final beacon of raw ruthless V8 power with a staunch refusal to give up its link to the near dead muscle car era.

Many point to the Smokey and the Bandit movie franchise for igniting sales of Pontiac’s wild child.

According to the car’s description, it wears the full black and gold paint scheme, snowflake rims and body ground effects with flairs and spoilers. The interior has been fully restored and features unique embroidered Bandit portrait headrests and for recreating scenes from the movie a period-correct Cobra CB radio.
