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.
