It's a '77 trans am.I had one back in '91 here in the uk (black with t-tops, naturally).9mpg round town and an engine sound to die for :lol: ,(wish I still had it! :( ).53 olds, why do You say abit strange?,because Your wife owns it?. Any girl driving a 70's trans am gets kudos from Me :D

Hi ferrariphill, it,s a bit strange because everybody says it ( SHOULD BE BLACK !! ) but we have never seen a green one, and also it has lakes pipes and our trade mark fangs on the front, and the interior is black and snake skin ( mainly the headlinning ) but looks cool, future plans are to add open headers etc, but as you said what a awsome sounding engine, we just like to be different, and some say we are complicated, nice to hear from you cheers Steve.

2007-07-27 01:40

Hi again 53 olds,Your right about green being rare for a '77 trans am,I think Yours is the first I've seen.I saw smokey and the bandit at the cinema when I was 9years old and promised Myself that I,d own a trans am oneday,so it had to be a black one.Have You seen the brewster green '73 trans am in John Waynes film "McQ"?.Now there's a green trans am I'd love to own (Mmmm... John Waynes trans am or Steve McQueens mustang from bullitt?,now Thats a tough call!).Mind You,as My Sig suggests,I love those Ferrari's too (If only those lottery numbers would come up!).

You truly are speaking with lack of knowledge. Pontiac made the transition from circular to square head lights on all its cars in 1977, with the exception of one of their cars I wanna say grand am or grand prix which went to square in '76. With that little fact plus the history of this movie making the 1977 Trans Am SE so famous it is obvious you must be confused/mistaken.

they used 3 trans ams for smokey and the bandit 1 76 and 2 77s,it was filmed in late 76 so theres no way in hell they couldve used a 78 style bird.the 76 had the front clip swapped from a 77 after one was totaled and the 76 was used for the bridge jump cause it was the only 4 spd car,if youll watch the newly released smokey and the bandit hal needam tells about the 3 t/as.theres no way in hell its a 73 or a 78

actually i think the 1977 was used for the jump. sorry. but theres a 76 during west bound and down, you can see the honeycomb wheels.

2009-11-19 01:35

no crap after that seen they changed the rims and clip,the 76 was the only 4 spd car i have the magazine from the 80s where it told about the swapping of front clips and shakers between the 2 77s cause 1 77 was 400 other was 403 olds and they used the 403 olds(6.6 liter) on the close up car that was actaully a 400(ta 6.6)s and stuff of the movie cause some car nut from mcr interviewed hal needam about the movie!

nope,

they were all '77's there was four cars one car that was rig up with camera's & that was also used for most of the interrior shots "it sat on a flat bed also"! a car that was used for a alot of stunts! and 2 other cars one of them was used for the jump & the other one was used for the the scene when bandit drives through the mail boxes! the bridge jump & mail box his scenes, those 2 cars were completely totaled after filming those 2 scene's and for the rest of the movie they parts off of those 2 cars and put them on the other stunt car! the only car to survive this original movie was the car that was rigged up with Camera's & that was on the flat bed while the 3 other cars was scrapped after filming what the interview's in my link below on this guy that was there for the filming the whole entire movie was filmed back in '76, you can see a video of the surviving car in the post that I posted directly on top of this post!

Wasn't this model also known by some as the 'Golden Jubilee', or was that something else, like the '79 Trans Am 'Gold Edition'?

Fordtruck26 US

2012-05-15 21:37

I think it might be called the gold edition ,or gold eagle because of its gold outline around the head lights.

Between this Trans Am and the Dodge Stealth in the 1994 knock-offs (/vehicle_360614-Dodge-Stealth.html), if they ever raced against each other, I can tell which one would win just by looking at them. Never mind the horsepower level of each car.

Did anybody see the 160 mph speedometer when frog say "are we really doing 110?" That is the 1976 t/a because the 1977 t/a's speedometer only goes to 100 mph. They'd had to of used the 76 for that scene, because if it was the 77 the line wouldn't have worked since there is no way to tell if a 77 was going 110mph by reading the speedometer. You would have to use a radar gun to calculate 110 in the 77.

The speedometer was in mph with no kph reading so they were probably going 110 mph in the seen. I wonder what engine was in the 76, I know it wasn't a 455 but what engine was it.

Yes apparently there was a 6 month waiting list after this was released, possibly even longer for a black one.

I'm sure I've read somewhere dealers had to respray Firebirds in other factory colours black to meet the demand.

As you know but the engine in it is not a 400 c.i cause the hood shaker does not say T/A 6.6 it only say 6.6 LITRE and that is a factory Oldsmobile 403 c.i with 185 horse power the 400 c.i is a Pontiac 400 with 207 horse power which were never use in the film.

Its the Pontiac 400, the car itself is a 76, they just changed some things to make it look like a 77. (Nose, Decals, all aesthetic details)

Got a question about Trans Ams used in the film. So based on those interviews with people who were working on the film or just watched the filming, there were eight '77 special edition Trans Ams which were donated to the production, although Needham kept giving the different number over the years, like three or five, and Reynolds said how they had and destroyed twelve Trans Ams (!) on first film alone. What i'm curious about is, if anybody knows how were some of the Trans Ams damaged or destroyed during filming? We already know about one which was used for bridge jump and which was completely destroyed after landing, one which crashed through mailboxes, and the last surviving "hero" car which was used for cameras and actors close ups and stills, but was crushed with all the others after filming.

pierrro FR

2021-02-01 22:50

Unrelated to the previous question : in the French version of the movie, they don't call this car a Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am, but a "Trans-America", since Pontiac was a completely unknown brand in France. And probably in the rest of Europe. To all the Europeans present here, had it been re-baptized in your country too?

Baube QC

2021-02-01 23:48

here too it is ( probably we have France's version ) . i think its more a translation error
in wiki they say the Trans Am was named this way because of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Am_Series
maybe the translation comes from there .. :think:

pierrro FR

2021-02-02 22:40

Salut cousin québécois.
Les Pontiac n'étaient-elles pas vendues régulièrement au Canada ? Etonnant qu'on ait re-baptisé cette voiture dans ton pays. Et pour savoir si vous aviez eu la version française du film, tu sais que c'est très simple : est-ce que vous comprenez ce que disent les personnages ? Si vous ne comprenez pas, c'est que c'est la version française! Si en France on avait eu la version québécoise, on n'y aurait rien compris. :lol:
