'Smokey' Trans Am sells for $480K [PHOTOS\VIDEO], Burt Reynolds has sold his 1977 Pontiac Trans Am that was a promotional vehicle for his hit comedy movie Smokey and the Bandit.

Reynolds received it as a gift for his car collection, according to Julien's Auctions, which handled the sale.
The movie, which also starred Sally Field and Jerry Reed, was about smuggling beer. Yes, beer.

The iconic black-and-gold TA has a 400-cubic-inch V-8 engine and automatic transmission, a 4-barrel carburetor and an automatic transmission.

Bidding started at $30,000 and sold for $480,000, a pretty penny since it was only a promotional vehicle from the hit film Smokey and the Bandit, not one of the actual cars used in the movie.

There was a lot of interest in items from Smokey and the Bandit over the weekend in Las Vegas. A Smokey and the Banditjacket went for $34,375. Even a Burt Reynolds license plate cleared $5,937. Larger photos here.
