Values Continue To Soar Smokey And The Bandit Trans Am Values Go?

Values Continue To Soar Smokey And The Bandit Trans Am Values Go? This 1977 Trans Am has all the important option codes and is fresher than when it left the factory 42 years ago This has to be one of the most recognizable cars from movie history. The car that was lead character in the second highest grossing film of 1977 - Smokey And The Bandit. A film that took over $250 Million at the box office, and was second only to Star Wars. Sales doubled overnight for the Trans Am and with good reason, it was the curtain call of the muscle car era. The final muscle car to survive in a world of economy boxes, the strangled 6.

I found a 1974 Trans Am that had a numbers-matching 455 and a TH400 transmission after two years of searching. A body-off restoration had been started in 1997 by the previous owner. All of the bodywork had been completed, including being painted in its original color, Cameo White.

My Trans - Am is a 1973 model; Cameo White with Saddle interior. It is a factory 4-spd car that came with a "standard" 455. It now has an SD-455. Chris 'critter' Ritter' s 1974 455 SD Trans Am . A beautiful car that has won many awards. He is also president of a new club in Arkansas.

Reader’s Ride: 1974 Trans Am
While in the Navy in San Diego, California, I ordered my very first new car, a Brewster Green 1973 Firebird Formula 400 from Gifford Pontiac. It was the first time I was able to order a new car, and it was a blast to drive.

Moving the clock ahead 40-plus years, I found myself in Kentucky helping some friends restore Corvettes. Having never forgotten about that Firebird, I had a dream of finding a 1970s Firebird Trans Am and restoring it. With a one-car garage and no lift, I was limited to starting with a fairly complete car.

I found a 1974 Trans Am that had a numbers-matching 455 and a TH400 transmission after two years of searching. A body-off restoration had been started in 1997 by the previous owner. All of the bodywork had been completed, including being painted in its original color, Cameo White. A new Baer four-wheel disc-brake system, a full Hotchkis suspension system, a rebuilt steering system, and a new TA rearend had all been installed on the car. Some of the interior had been refurbished, and the 455 motor and transmission had been installed. The car had been lowered 2 inches, and everything had been removed from the firewall, including the heater, ventilation, and A/C systems. I think his intention was to build a track car.

In 2000, the motor and transmission were sent to Jim Taylor Engines for a rebuild. The motor was upgraded with HO/SD parts, including round-port 7F6 heads, a Holley aluminum intake and 800-cfm carburetor, roller rockers, a custom cam, and other high-performance parts. Over the next 16 years, the owner accumulated parts for the car assuming they were correct and supposed to work on a 1970 to 1975 Firebird. They were never installed on the car.

Pontiac Trans Am Is A Third-Gen Charmer

Pontiac Trans Am Is A Third-Gen Charmer Is it time to stop overlooking the third-generation Trans Am? Over the last few years, popularity of the third generation run of the F-Body has seen a surprising spike, but more times than not, it’s the third-gen Camaro that’s getting the spotlight, not the humble Pontiac variant. However, if you look the market on a shorter timeline, you’ll see strong interest in the same year run Pontiac Firebirds, Formulas, and Trans Ams, and for good reason. This 1986 Pontiac Trans Am is a beautiful example of the generation, as well as the modern classic American market that’s largely underestimated. © Motorious.

When I purchased the car in 2016, it had been in storage for 16 years, had not run since 2000, and had not been driven since the 1990s. It came with a truckload of boxes filled with brand new parts. As I started assembling the car, I came to the conclusion that even though I had all these new parts, most of them were not going to work on this car. My goal was to keep the car as cosmetically OE as possible. I contacted my friend Shawn Green at Firebird Central in Richmond, Kentucky, to see if he would be interested in swapping some parts. He agreed, so we traded what ended up being a pickup load of Firebird parts.

Now, after working on the car for more than two years, it is finally together and somewhat drivable. The black deluxe interior looks original with an AM/FM Delco radio and an eight-track system. I replaced the 1974 front end with one from a 1972 model, replaced the Holley intake and carburetor with a Ram Air IV aluminum intake and Quadrajet carburetor, installed a functional 1972 hoodscoop and air cleaner, installed Ram Air round-port exhaust manifolds, and a stock SD exhaust and muffler system. Some of the parts that came with the car were OE, and I supplemented those with as many OE parts that I could find and refurbish. The rest were reproductions.

The drivability aspect needs some improvement, so as I work on that my plan is to drive it to local car shows and maybe even drive it to Dayton, Ohio, to the Trans Am Nationals.
