Rick, what exactly is a “Bandit Edition” Trans Am? People throw that term around loosely. Spell it out for us.
Bandit simple means it has to be an Authentic “SE” which means it has to have the Special Edition Pkg, now depending on which year we are talking 1977-1981, it would mean a Y81- Y82- Y84 Special Edition (i can break that down at a another time) The Point is there is a BIG Diff in Value between a Special Edition and a Regular Black TA. The " Bandit " all started of course with the Movie : Smokey and the Bandit " and that Movie car was a 1977 Y82 ( SE ) Special Edition Trans Am What Special Edition Pkg consists of is the Folowing, Gold Snow Flake Wheels, Gold Pinstriping, Gold Anodized spoke Steering wheel, Gold Plated Dash Bezel, Gold Bird Badges in Door Panels, Gold Nose Crest Emblem ( EXCEPT 1977 ), Larger Sail Panel Birds, Gold Bird Automatic Shift Button,exclusive Black n Gold Hood Bird,(1977-1978) there are other factors depending on what year we are talking, for example a 1977 SE also received exclusive German Lettering decals, i am sending a 1977 Window sticker example, this one happens to be a Y82, which means “with T-Tops”. Now you can ad all the items mentioned above to any Black Trans Am, but that would be a Clone and not an Authentic SE " Bandit " Edition Trans Am, thanks for the question, Rick McLaughlin
