Brought to life as General Motors’ answer to Ford’s Mustang, Pontiac released the first Firebird in February of 1967. After taking many shapes from inception, the most famed being the second generation—in particular the Trans-Am model—the Firebird became an instant household icon when Burt Reynolds arrived on the silver screen with “Bandit” in the legendary ‘70s blockbuster, Smokey and the Bandit. Noted as one of the most recognizable cars in existence, the ’77 Firebird Trans-Am used in the film recently sold for a jaw-dropping, $495,000—further solidifying this transcendent shape as the true piece of pop-culture history that it is.
Photographed above, our 1976 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am 50th Anniversary Edition has traveled only 40k miles since new and is accompanied by a hefty amount of documentation—including the original window sticker. Restored to showroom condition in the mid 2000s, this extremely well-cared for example is one of only 533 cars produced with the highly sought after, removable glass T-Tops. Delivered new by way of Dave McCormick Pontiac in Quincy, Illinois, this matching numbers example is powered by its original, L78 6.6L 400 CI/325 HP naturally-aspirated V8 and is mated to the optional, “Turbo Hydramatic” automatic transmission—creating an incredibly smooth power delivery.
