Trans Am - It's The Bandit!



Paint is complete on the 79 Trans Am. Notice that the owner decided to convert the front to a 77 Trans Am nose, to be like the original Bandit Trans Am from the original Smokey and the Bandit movie. For now the phoenix decal is acclimating, relaxing to lie flat because it arrived in a tube. Also we need the temperature of the decal and the car to be the same when we apply it.

The 1967 Shelby GT 500.  The perfect blend of sport and muscle, 1967 Shelby GT 500 was designed and built to satisfy a taste for high performance American cars.  Carroll Shelby did what he did best, he designed a car that would scare even the most experienced driver.  The 1967 GT 500 had a list of upgrades over the regular Mustang that included the reworked 428-cid V-8.  Shelby added the cast-aluminum medium-rise intake from Fords 427 and twin 600-cfm Holley four-barrel carburetors to produce a conservative rating of 355bhp.

Shelby added numerous performance upgrades over the regular Mustangs as well as many cosmetic attributes that makes it stand out over the competition still today, just as it did 50 years ago.
