Batman's Tumbler. The Ghostbusters' Ecto One. Bond's DB5. There have been plenty of iconic rides in cinema history, but for guys born of a certain age, few can compare with the Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit. Unfortunately, all of the cars used in the film were badly damaged (no surprise to anyone who's watched it), leaving this Smokey and the Bandit 1977 Pontiac Trans Am as the finest example of the Firebird around. It served as a promo car, touring the country to promote the film. As a result, it has its original drivetrain, 400ci TA 6.6 engine, and 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic transmission, as well as extensive documentation to prove its origin. That includes a Universal Studios certificate with the VIN listed, a plaque from GM, maps showing scene locations, original studio press kits, an original script of the film, and a title signed by the Bandit himself, Burt Reynolds.
Built during the final year of production, this 1958 Porsche 356 A Speedster is a classic example of this spartan drop-top that offers more speed than most. The most recent of the car's three owners upgraded it with a four-cylinder engine from a 912, producing 104 hp — a 25 percent improvement over the original engine — and outfitted with sheet metal, starter, generator fan shroud, oil filler and filter from the 356 A, giving it a stock appearance. The exterior is finished in Meisen Blue with a Navy top, correct OEM USA full bumpers, and chrome side-view mirror, while the interior has a matching Meisen Blue dash with correct gauges, a restored Nardi wooden steering wheel, and tan square-weave carpeting. Arrives with its original jack and OEM tool roll.
