Estimate: $60,000 - $80,000 Starting: $30,000 Few movies are as iconic in the world of cars as Smokey & the Bandit. Released January 1, 1977 starring Burt Reynolds, Sally Field and a black and gold “Screaming Chicken”, the movie tells the story of the aches and pains of getting a Coors beer east of the Mississippi. This is Mr. Reynolds' 1977 Trans Am Coupe (T-Top) which was used as a promotional vehicle for the movie and gifted to Burt for his collection.  She features a 400 cid Pontiac V-8 engine, a 4-barrel carburetor and an automatic transmission.  With a gold plaque on the driver door stating “1977 Pontiac Trans Am Owned By Burt Reynolds” and a customized "Bandit" logo, this is "no ordinary automobile"; it's a piece of "Hollywood History".  This is an amazing opportunity to own what just might be the coolest car EVER!
