This "Smokey and the Bandit" replica is a full rotisserie restoration of a real 1978 Y82 Special Edition Bandit Trans-Am. Updated with a GM LS3 engine modified with ported heads and cam mated to a T-56 transmission. It is outwardly stock other than the 17" Year One replica wheels and being lowered approximately 1.5". While other Bandit replicas have featured updated headlights, modified graphics and insane high-output engines, this has more of a feel of what The Bandit was back in the late 1970s but with well over 500 crank horsepower.
The LS3 engine is painted Pontiac blue and is fitted with a carb-style intake manifold with a throttle body mounted in place of a carburetor. It also features a functional shaker air intake and has air conditioning. At car shows most people don't even realize it's not the factory 6.6L Pontiac engine.
Great sounding stereo system cost $10K. One of the best parts of the car is when you flip a switch and the 300 watt stereo in the grill plays on the outside of the car! Cue "Eastbound and Down"!
Paint is beautiful, like a mirror and was just professionally ceramic coated with three coats. The paint underneath the car is almost that nice too. No corner was cut or cost-spared. Most of the interior is new, NOS or painstakingly been restored to new. This is the ultimate Resto-Mod Bandit as it stays true to its roots yet features all the modern updates you'd want.
