Real Y-84 bandit! Loaded, upgraded motor.

This is a genuine Y-84 Special "Bandit" Edition. Loaded with options and documented with build sheet. Restored by Trans Am specialties. This TA has everything going for it. The one weakness was the whimpy 301 motor. That was rectified with a performance built 400!

EXTERIOR: The Bandit cars were starlight black and decked out with all the gold trimmings. Gold birds, stripes and gold accents on the aluminum turbo wheels. Window moldings were blacked out. This car also has factory glass t-tops. The body is very clean and straight. Bottom of the doors are clean, factory spotwelds around the wheel wells are clean. The rubber bumpers are excellent. The paint is polished like a mirror. Jambs are painted nice. New weatherstrips and window seals. New windshield. Decals are all fresh. Wheels are professionally restored, BFG tires look new. This car looks fast just sitting still- all the scoops, flares, spoilers and the screaming chicken on the hood!

INTERIOR: Has deluxe cloth interior. Loaded up with options too. Has tilt formula wheel, power windows, locks, rear defrost, rally gauges and the factory premium cassette stereo. Looks like it has new carpets, upholstery, door panels, armrests, door handle bezels, headliner etc. The trim pieces are excellent-pilkars, seat backs etc. Dash area is clean- machine turned bezel is bright, nothing cut or damaged. Console is excellent, new shifter bezel.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The 200 hp little 301 motor was upgraded with a performance built 6.6 400! Has an Isky cam, Edelbrock intake, dual feed big Holley carb, HEI ignition system with MSD box and a set of headers. It has factory power steering, power brakes and air conditioning. A/C system has been gone through, several new parts. Blows cold air. Upgraded aluminum radiator, stock clutch fan, shroud and overflow bottle.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Rust free, damage free metal. Has original space saver spare with the complete jack assembly. The jack is mounted up under the rear deck where it's supposed to be. Has a new carpet liner, also includes the original Fisher t-top bags. Trunk light works. Bottom of the trunk lid is glossy, the jamb is a little dull. Weatherstrip is nice.

UNDERSIDE: Bottom of the motor is still spotless. New fuel pump and high torque starter. Has turbo 350 automatic trans. Original 3.08 posi in back. New exhaust with stainless Magnaflow mufflers and correct splitter tips. The floors are rock solid original metal. The frame rails, rockers, inner 1/4s all look great. All the components look proper and good. Has factory 4 wheel disc brakes.

This Trans Am has a lot to offer at a great price. It would be double for this same car if it were a 1979. 81s are worth less because the motor size dropped which was taken care of in this one. All you need to do with this car is watch out for Smokeys!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
