Merchants Auto Group is pleased to present this 1977 Pontiac Trans Am Golden Eagle Bandit Car for your consideration at our Cicero, Indiana showroom. It took a pretty stunning car to steal the show from a lineup of Burt Reynolds, Jackie Gleason, Sally Field and Jerry Reed. But movie makers found one that was up to the task. Just as “Bullitt” and “Gone in 60 Seconds” will forever be linked with their star cars, so will the 1977 Pontiac Special Edition Trans Am be forever linked with Smokey And The Bandit, so much, in fact, that in hobby parlance they are simply known as the Bandit Trans Ams. Turns out there was a lot to like about the rollicking film, and there was just as much to like about the special T/A, which for a short time, showed that there was a true performance car still around during a decade of sagging horsepower and little to excited about when it came to new cars. Truthfully, even though Reynolds melted the tires from Atlanta to Texarkana and back, the ’77 Trans Am was fairly pedestrian in the grand scheme of things among memorable muscle cars. It made between 180 and 200 horsepower, depending on which engine you wound up with and if you picked the automatic or the manual, but the styling, graphics and overall polish made it a truly memorable car. Of course, the movie didn’t hurt. For 1977, the Trans Am could again be ordered with an extra-cost package, which was called the Special Edition rather than Limited Edition. It was available in Y81 coupe and Y82 Hurst Hatch (or T-top) models. Custom gold decals and gold snowflake wheels really set off this well-integrated appearance option. PMD records indicate that 15,567 Special Edition Trans Ams were built in 1977. While performance may have been down somewhat from earlier years, the Trans Am still had a hot, sexy sports-racing-car image that drove the Firebird’s popularity higher. Model year production totals included 30,642 base Firebirds, 34,548 Esprits, 21,801 Formulas and 68,745 high-profit-margin Trans Ams. To put the Firebird’s success in perspective, remember that less than 30,000 were made just five years earlier, when the model’s future seemed dim. The 1977 Special Edition package was similar to the 1976 Limited Edition package. Its standard equipment started off with all federally mandated safety, anti-theft, convenience and emissions control features. The 400-cid (6.6-liter) V-8 was standard in 49 states and the 403-cid (6.6-liter) V-8 was standard in California or high-altitude counties. The T/A 6.6-liter (400-cid) V-8 was optional. Gold trim was seemingly everywhere on the car, and teamed with the black paint the car was truly a head-turner. The interior featured a gold formula steering wheel with gold spokes. The instrument panel bezel, and console trim plate and door panels were trimmed in gold faux engine turned plating. Other standard equipment included a Turbo-Hydra-Matic transmission (or four-speed manual transmission with the optional T/A 6.6-liter V-8), a Trans Am front fender decal, a black-out grille, a Trans Am grille panel decal, a Trans Am wraparound rear deck spoiler decal, a front center air dam, rear wheel opening air deflectors, a shaker hood scoop and air cleaner, concealed windshield wipers, front fender air extractors, power steering, a Power-Flex radiator fan, Rally gauges with a clock and tachometer, a front seat console, power front disc/rear drum brakes, a heater, a defroster, carpeting, windshield moldings, an aluminum machine-turned instrument panel trim plate, a formula steering wheel, dual sport mirrors with left-hand remote controlled, dual horns, a rear deck lid spoiler, dual chrome splitter tailpipe extensions, 15 x 7-inch. Rally II wheels with trim rings, a Saf-T-Track limited-slip differential, GR70-15 black sidewall steel-belted radial tires, a Radial Tuned Suspension with larger front and rear stabilizer bars, Starlight Black exterior body finish, gold body striping, gold interior and exterior accents, gold aluminum wheels and an available removable hatch roof.
