The man, the legend himself the Bandit, Burt Reynolds, who seems that has endless store of Pontiac Firebird Trans Ams modeled like the one in the 1977 hit movie “Smokey and the Bandit,” , will present his Pontiac Bandit at the Barrett Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.
New Update 2/1/2017:
The Burt Reynolds’ latest ‘Bandit’ Trans Am that was going to Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona in January 14-22, was sold for $275,000. We expected more, like the one that got $450,000 or 550 K, but this is still a lot of money! Congratulation to buyer!
When all started in 2014 as the when an original “Smokey and the Bandit” promo car sold for $450,000. Now, in this January this is Burt Reynolds’ fourth Bandit-style Trans Am that will go “under the hummer”.
In 2015 Reynolds’ sale of a “tribute” Bandit Edition, that he owned for a year was sold for $170,000. And, last in 2016 the actor, the Bandit himself brought out another movie promo car that ended up fetching $550,000.
This years model, or this one that is going to auction in January 14-22, 2017 with assigned lot number 1401 is not linked with the movie, and it is very special example.
But, this is not all the man, the legend will ensure that the bidding is intense, and the “Bandit” eill present this model to auction. He’ll even drive the car up on stage and meet with the winning bidder.
