1977 Bandit Trans Am Flowmaster
1977 Trans Am Special Edition, TA 6.6, 4 speed. After battling numerous
header problems including reoccurring Exhaust leaks and mufflers bottoming out
(scraping pavement) I went back to a crossflow muffler. I installed a
Flowmaster 80 series muffler and I am happy with the results. It's not a
true dual Exhaust but it works for me!

If you're into 400 cubic inches of American muscle, close ratio 4-speed
transmissions and giant gold bird decals, order up some flutes of Coors,

Assembled at GM's famous Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility in March of
1977, this pristine Trans Am coupe was delivered to Gary F. Vincel Pontiac
in St. Louis, Missouri to begin a long, accident-free tour of America's
driest heartland. In the spring of 2004, Champion Auto Body in Pasadena,
Maryland spent hours sanding, straightening and prepping the car's 100%
original body panels to better-than-new condition. And today, logging only
100 miles per year since that thorough restoration was completed, this
spectacular F2 displays a killer coat of correct Starlight Black urethane
under Special Edition-exclusive full outlining stripes and an iconic
Special Edition-exclusive 'screaming chicken' hood decal.
Pop this Trans Am's glossy black hood and you'll find a correct 6.6 liter
W72 V8 that, according to the car's previous owner, was installed in
October of 1977 as a warranty replacement piece. As the final, and some say
greatest, Pontiac block ever created, this beefy mill utilizes a thicker
casting, a revised camshaft, a better oil pump, a better distributor and
smaller '6X' heads from the division's own 350 to create higher compression
and successfully reverse almost a decade of declining horsepower.
At the bottom of this Trans Am a mildly freshened undercarriage is
comprised of straight floorpans that still display most of their standard
factory undercoating, and a satin black chassis that still retains most of
its factory luster. In the middle of that undercarriage a correct Borg
Warner T10 4-speed sends power to a rebuilt 10 bolt rear end which still
retains its correct metal maintenance tag. Below that stellar powertrain a
rebuilt Trans Am suspension, which includes power steering, thicker sway
bars, better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with standard issue power
front disc and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling.
And at the corners of the car, restored aluminum snow flake wheels spin
Special Edition-exclusive gold paint between 'red bird' center caps and
modern 225/70 BF Goodrich Radial T/As.
Open this F-Body's massive black doors and you'll find a fully restored
deluxe vinyl interior that wraps Special Edition-exclusive gold trim in a
whole lot of old school style! The fresh cockpit begins with rebuilt seats
that are firm, crisp and look every bit as nice and rich as their deluxe
name implies. Between those seats, a silver-trimmed console props a cushy
armrest behind a chrome Hurst shifter. And in front of the driver, a gold,
engine-turned dash anchors crystal clear gauges, controls for factory heat
and air conditioning, and a Trans Am-branded radio delete panel behind a
correct Formula steering wheel.
If you're in the market for a super cool Trans Am, NOW is the time to buy a
correct, low mileage, investment grade showpiece to enjoy for years to
come! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more

This 1977 Pontiac Trans Am is just like the one used in Smokey and The
Bandit, and if you grew up in the 70s like I did, it still makes your heart
flutter every time you see one. Not only is it like the one Burt Reynolds
drove, but it is a real 4-speed car, has just 34,581 original miles, is
fully documented including Pontiac Historic Services paperwork and full
ownership history, and is loaded with more than $2800 in original factory
options, including A/C!
And nice this one is that inky black paint is orders of magnitude better
than any 1970s factory job, which it should be since the car was treated to
a show-quality repaint in 2008 by a shop that specializes in 1975-1981
Trans Ams. The gaps and panel alignment are excellent the decals, which are
EVERYWHERE on this car, are in outstanding condition.
The motivating force behind this famous ride is the 6.6 liter V8 under the
hood (that's a 400 to us old-school muscle car guys), and the
numbers-matching lump in this Poncho is as close to factory fresh as a car
can be after 34,000 miles. All the correct bits and pieces are there, from
the hoses and clamps to the air cleaner's fresh air hose. Notice the
factory A/C and GM Corporate Blue paint, total vintage 1977 equipment. It
starts and runs perfectly, although it's awfully quiet. I'm pretty sure the
sound effects in the movie weren't made by a stock Trans Am because it sure
sounded NASTY. I'm guessing this one is just a muffler upgrade away from a
full Bandit soundtrack if that's what you're into.
Behind the engine you'll find a genuine shift-it-yourself 4-speed manual.
The rest of the chassis is par for a 34,000 mile original clean and well
maintained, but not super-glossy like a restored piece. The Exhaust looks good, the brakes work properly,
and the machined snowflake wheels with gold inserts sport 225/70/15
BFGoodrich T/A radials.
Inside there's a tan interior in place of Burt's black upholstery, and I
think I like it better. First of all, black gets seriously hot when
cruising with the T-tops off and the sun is shining. And second, it's like
a black hole in there. The tan guts on this car are bright and airy and
contrast nicely with the black and gold exterior. Looking at the driver's
seat, there's just no question that this is a low-mileage piece; there's
not a fold or crease anywhere, the pedals show no wear, and the steering
wheel looks like new.
Customers ask us: if there was one car you would buy right now and hang
onto, what would it be? Here's our current reply: this 1977 Trans Am.
This car has all the right stuff (paperwork, original drive train, original
sheet metal, color, a 4-speed) that forms the basis for an investment grade
car. Most importantly, it is arguably the most desirable single model of
THE iconic car of the 70's generation.
Barn Find 1977 Pontiac Trans Am Restoration
It really was less restoration and more preservation. When this cherry T/A
showed up from California, all eyes were on it. It was rust free and had
been sitting in a barn since 1986! After some game planning, the guys did
the obvious mechanical work to get the car back on the road and reliable.
Then they turned to all the cosmetics that needed TLC to get her looking
sharp again. The iconic late seventies F-bodies are as popular as ever and
this was one the best survivors we have ever seen in the shop.
