1978 Pontiac Trans Am Bandit Clone description
Schroeder Motors is proud to offer this 1978 Trans-Am for sale.
This is a RCT,...(which is,...and I just made this up)....a Recreation, Clone, Tribute car. I wonder if this RCT thing will catch on?....if so,...you heard it here 1st!
Okay,...back to the Bandit,...RCT.
Beautiful High Quality Driver Condition showing clean & clear reflections on all panels.
The paint shine is deep,...the Decals are nice and full color and the Snowflake wheels are terrific.
The car stands square on the road,...a nice street stance for sure.
All of the lights operate as they should...nice and bright. The Glass is clear,...even the Antenna in the windshield is nice.
The front lower spoiler is not cracked.....this is a very, very nice looking car. You'll be proud to be seen it it Good Buddy.
Super clean and nice in here too. The seats sit well,...the carpets are full color and nice,...all interior surfaces have a new look,...nothing is out of place.
In the corners of the windshield is the most critical part of these cars in my opinion....water would leak down the windshield frame and into these corners causing rust issues.....this car was NOT exposed to that,...so,..no rust in the corners of the inside glass!
The Dash Bezel is nice,...and original. The Tach & Speedo Work.....the Radio does not nor does the water temp guage....but it runs cool....I'd drive it anywhere.
The A/C does not work,...but we can get that fixed "IF" it's important to you. I think it needs a new compressor. Again,..we have one of the Best Muscle Car Speed Shops in town,...this is an easy fix.
Overall,..the interior looks close to new,...even the center console door opens and closes as it should.
The Drive Line.
Please expect smooth shifts from gear to gear and a very well tuned motor. The road manners are nice,...it's quiet,...handles, brakes and steers as straight as a Scum Bum,....I mean arrow.
The engine bay is clean,...everything looks right and it's in alignment with the rest of the car's cosmetic condition.
The Final Word.
I think Real Bandit T/A's are too valuable to drive,..they seem to be headed up since the Barrett Jackson Sale of the Real Movie Car,...and they haven't slowed down since. We'll see more north bound moves in price if I had to guess, making these RCT's (hey,...that RCT thing sounds good) something that you can drive without the fear of some "sum bich" runnin' into it:)
Schroeder Motors has been in business for almost 50 years,...We are located 1 mile south of 70 on Hwy. 94 in St. Charles,...in the St. Louis Metro.
Call or come by and see this car as well as all the other cars & trucks from our past,...that we used to sell NEW back in the day.
