Description:

1979 Pontiac Firebird Bandit

Please read carefully..this car belonged to my 57 year old brother who suddenly passed away just before Thanksgiving of this year. As the car sits now it is close to 90% complete. THIS IS BY NO MEANS A BARRETT JACKSON SHOW CAR..the car started its life here in Florida as a White Trans Am Coupe 5spd car with with full Bird package. My brother began to put stupid money (over $30K) into the car to make it exactly like the famed Burt Reynolds Bandit car...PHASE #1..the body restoration was FIRST..new fenders, new front bumper, new hood, new shaker kit, new 1/4 panels, new rear bumper, new door skins, 4 new mud guard lower flair pkg, 4 new radials, 4 new OEM snowflake rims, 4 new OEM center caps, new front windshield and new rear glass and all new moldings..then the REAL TRIP was to make the original Coupe car into a T-top car. $3800 later the car was a smoked glass T-Top car as the result of a custom fabrication shop here in Florida. The car was then completely painted base-clear Black and the full Bandit Bird Gold decal package was placed on the car...If you study the many photos, the exterior of the car takes your breath away..onlookers stop dead in their tracks...at this point there are a few touch ups...one on the corner of the right front bumper and on the corner of the left rear bumper...Other than that, the exterior of the car spotless..no dents no waves..just s nice straight black car..PHASE #2..NOW THE MECHANICAL RESTORATION..engine rebuilt to the tune of $4040 (receipt provided), transmission rebuilt to the tune of $3126.94 (receipt provided)...competition flywheel/clutch $1177.15 (receipt provided)..additional receipt for $2959.91 for exhaust work (headers), brake work etc...note when the engine was put back in, the A/C compressor was not put in so it still needs the A/C compressor for the air to function. At this point the interior was out of the car and in 3 large boxes...my brother installed a train horn, a Burt Reynolds CB radio and roof mount magnetic CB antenna..got himself a cowboy hat, grew a mustache..bolted the drivers seat in and drove the car around without the interior in it...just the driver's seat and himself. I have never seen him happier... He drove the car around like that on weekends last summer and put the car up in September for the winter with intentions of replacing the interior..without elaboration, two days before this past Thanksgiving he committed suicide. The car was then shipped back to me here in Florida and I had a friend of mine refit the original interior in the car...the interior is presentable, however shows its age..seats are not torn but worn (can get the exact hounds tooth replacement covers for $539)..some of the door panel bezels are missing (see photos)..the interior T-top molding pieces are missing..it has a brand new carpet just installed..just study the pics...Well that's the story..I personally need it gone as it is gut wrenching for me to look at...with a little more effort she could be quite a piece..or better yest just drive it as it is..by no means an embarrassment..if you need to call me, feel free..407-430-2236..I have a clean title here in hand..I WILL SHIP ANYWHERE OVERSEAS..<a target="_blank"
