This Trans Am is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Black Starlight paint over Red deluxe cloth interior.

The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, stating the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, and information below to get a true sense of clean and nice this Trans Am really is.

As a side note, this Trans Am is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Pontiac, just give us a call.

Now jump ahead to 1977. There was this movie which was every bit as touted as the Bond series, and featured box office stars Burt Reynolds, Jerry Reed, Sally Fields, Jackie Gleason, and the newly restyled 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. "Smokey and the Bandit". Despite all the wit of Reynolds, the humor of Jerry Reed, the facial expressions of Gleason, and the innocence of Ms. Fields, the Trans Am truly was center stage. All of America not only knew about the Trans Am, now they wanted one.

Once America discovered the Trans Am, demand was so great in fact that production jumped twenty-thousand units , for a grand total of 68,744. There was a lot to like about the '77 T/A. It had a new look. It had a new engine. It's soul was renewed. Pontiac built a winner.

Starting at the front, a new "Batmobile" nose was introduced, combining the bumper and header panel into a single unit, made of deformable urethane. This allowed drivers to even be less careful as the worry of cracking the fibreglass header panel was gone. Within the fascia rested GM's latest styling innovation, square headlamps. These lamps added a refreshingly modern look to the car. The headlamps were surrounded by a one-piece grille/bezel assembly with a matte black (except Special Editions which received gold) honey comb grille texture and chrome edges.

Exterior

The Starlight Black exterior is in great driver condition. A professional repaint was completed a few years ago with new GM decals applied. As one can see in the photos, the paint has an nice gloss, dazzling shine, and smooth finish. This Trans Am is very solid with no visible signs of rust what so ever. Please look closely at many photos of the underside of the car. This trans am literality has the cleanest and nicest underside of any original f-body we have had. It is totally solid with no signs of rust or corrosion whatsoever and even the red primer is still present. Please note that this is not a car that was "paint-bombed" underneath to cover other issues. We have included specific photos of the areas underneath and on the body most prone to rust to show how clean this car is. Often times Trans Am's will have particularly chipped up front ends; this car does not. The 15x8 snow flake wheels were recently purchased and look virtually brand new with no curb rash and a great shine and finish. The center caps are the correct stainless steel caps that are in excellent shape and the lug nuts are correct and in excellent shape as well. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There may be some very small blemishes that were too small to faint to even show up in photos and some small spots in the paint, most notable on the roof, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five feet away. The tires are literally brand new sized 255/60/15 with less than 500 miles on them. All weather stripping and window sweeps are in newer condition. The trunk is solid, complete, and nicely detailed with spare tire, jack and accessories with original correct trunk mat.

This Trans Am has a stamping on the radiator core support, which is pictured below. The core support appears to show a date of "1 04 77" stamp, or January 1, 1977. This stamping would be correct and original as it precedes the car's build date of the second week of February, 1977 (02D). As one can imagine, if this Trans Am had ever sustained even a minor front end collision this part would have been repaired or replaced. The original stamping is great to see in tact.

The Trans Am looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

The red cloth deluxe interior of this Trans Am looks absolutely marvelous. The seats are in great condition with no excessive wear, stains, or seam splits. Please note that these are the original Lombardy seat covers and not some cheap incorrect aftermarket replacements. The carpet is in good condition with no major stains. The carpet does show a bit of wear in a few areas, but as one can see in the photos it is not very noticeable at all and covered by the floor mats. The original dash is in excellent condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The original am/fm radio still remains in the factory position and the dash amazingly remains uncut after all these years. A very nice modern Sony stereo is mounted in the console map pocket with a professional mounting kit and brand new JBL 6x9 rear speakers are in the factory placement in the rear deck. All interior lights and gauges work as they should with the obvious exception of the clock. The original door panels look great and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner appears to be original as well and in very nice condition with no stains or rips. The package tray also appears original and is in great condition with no warping, fading, or sun damage. The original console and shifter plate are both in excellent condition as well and the console lid is solid and in tact. This car has not been smoked in and there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever. These 1970's GM interiors are not known to wear well over time and the amazing condition of this original interior is a true testament to the excellent and meticulous care this car has received throughout its life.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This Trans Am is in very good mechanical condition and it is ready to be enjoyed. The way this Trans Am runs and drives is some of its strongest points. This Trans Am is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. The previous owner just had an alignment performed in June of this year so the car tracks straight. There are service records and receipts from his ownership included with the car. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs excellent. The brakes are very responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The car still has a catalytic converter in place. The horn works as do all the interior and exterior lights, wipers, stereo, and gauges. The speedometer, tachometer, odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as they should. This Trans Am came from the factory with Air Conditioning, but the previous owner recently removed it and every piece that was removed comes with the sale of the car and could easily be re installed. We were told that the AC system was in tact and fully operational and charged prior to removal. Also, none of the factory AC wiring was removed or cut in any way during the removal and is taped up and tucked away behind the distributor. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially on a beautiful day rowing through the gears.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1977 PHS Documented Trans Am is in terrific original condition. It is a great value and we have it priced to sell. Verifiable originality is also extremely important in pricing on these cars and as one can see this Pontiac is documented and undoubtedly a correct mostly original TA. This car turns heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes. The value of these Black Trans Am's or "Bandit Cars" as some call them, is currently skyrocketing. They are all solid investments for a collector or the average enthusiast. Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson and Mecum stars of the future. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
