The original Smokey and the Bandit 1978 Trans Am is about to go up on the block for die-hard fans to place their bids! Whether you’re a Burt Reynolds fan, or just a fan of the television classic, now is your chance to own a great piece of Hollywood classic car memorabilia.
Reportedly, Burt Reynolds has been in a bit of financial trouble as of late, and is now ready to sell off some of the high-value items in his career-collection in order to get back on top of things. The Trans Am has been kept in top-notch condition, although it has been used frequently by Reynolds himself. It has a custom BANDT22 plate, embroidered seats, and a CB radio inside. The current bid on the car is $60,000, just in case you’re interested…
Yahoo Autos released several pictures of the classic Pontiac, if you would like to get a look at this classic TV icon: https://autos.yahoo.com/photos/burt-reynolds-bandit-78-trans-am-up-for-sale-1417452528-slideshow/
