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.

Here at Chicago Motor Cars, we make every effort to ensure that our vehicle will exceed the expectation of the most demanding buyers. Each vehicle is hand-selected by our expert purchasing staff, then handed over to our reconditioning team to bring the car as close to new as is humanly possible.  Our goal is to offer the most exceptional pre-owned vehicles in the marketplace at unbeatable prices!

Please remember, every one of our cars has been enjoyed by their original owners, and these are not factory-new cars.  This means they have actually been driven, and regardless of the level of care, every car will exhibit some wear-and-tear. Our vehicles are advertised with the current mileage at the time of listing, so mileage at the time of sale may vary due to test drives, transportation for reconditioning, etc.  We go above and beyond to be as accurate as possible in our listings and descriptions, but remember, we are still human just like you.  Cars leave the factory with unattached accessories (i.e. floor mats, extra keys, owners manuals, headsets, remotes, etc), and while it would be ideal to have all original accessories included with every car, this is not always the case.  We will note in our listings any accessories that will be included, and provide a picture within the listing of all accessories.  We do all within our power to avoid mistakes or misprints, so if you see any inaccuracy within our listing, we only ask that you bring this to our attention so that we can immediately rectify the information.  We cannot be held responsible for any purely accidental inaccuracies.  Since our ultimate goal is 100% customer satisfaction, we ask every customer to verify the listed equipment at the time of purchase with their salesperson.  Please do not make any assumptions regarding condition or equipment.  If you have any questions or concerns, call us at (630) 221-1800 and ask to speak with a sales manager to discuss.  We also ask that that you not misinterpret anything in this disclaimer, as it is intended to be understood exactly as it is written.  We are here to provide only the very best in quality and customer service!  All sales must add tax, title, license and $300 Illinois Doc fee. Fees may vary by state and county of new vehicle registration. Contact dealer for details.
