1977 Pontiac FIrebird

General Overview

Remember that little movie, “Smokey and the Bandit?" The real star was the 1977 Trans Am, more specifically, the black and gold Bandit/Special edition.

All the Firebird models were updated receiving a new grille containing four square headlamps, replacing the single round ones of previous years. The 455 was gone, but a remarkable new 400 option, called the W72, matched the 455’s 200hp.
