A replica 1977 Smokey and the Bandit Pontiac Trans Am owned by Burt Reynolds sold at auction for $450,000.
According to auctioneer Julien’s Auctions, the car was used to promote the film but never actually appeared in the movie. It was given to Reynolds afterward.
The Trans Am features a 6.6L, 400-cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carb, automatic transmission, and a plaque inside the door indicating the car was owned by Reynolds, according to Autoblog.
The car was sold as part of The Burt Reynolds Auction in Las Vegas which included a variety of Reynolds-owned memorabilia, ranging from trophies from his award-winning acting career to personalized autographed collectibles from people like Jimmy Stewart, Elizabeth Taylor, Muhammad Ali, Mickey Mantle, and Walter Payton.
A jacket used in the filming of Smokey and the Bandit fetched $34,375.
