Burt Reynolds' Trans Am from 'Smokey' Back Up for Auction

The Bandit's back, baby! After selling for a whopping $450,000 at auction last year, the iconic 1977 Pontiac Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit is up for auction once again, having undergone a full restoration.

Reynolds had put the car up for sale in an auction event last year in which he sold a large portion of his collection of movie paraphernalia. While this particular car wasn't actually used in the film, it saw time as a promotional vehicle and was given to Burt as a gift from the producers.

Though it wasn't driven in the film, this particular Trans Am is extremely valuable, as the four cars used during filming were destroyed shortly afterwards. That makes this Pontiac the only one with a connection to the film itself, hence the high asking price for a car that had sat idle for almost 30 years before sale.

With a 400-ci V-8, 3-speed automatic, removable T-tops and an 8-track player, this Trans Am is all original, and could fetch much more than $450K when it goes up on the block courtesy of Barrett-Jackson. If you're looking for the perfect gift for the Bandit lover in your life and have some (a lot of) cash to burn, we've got you covered.
