no 81s were used in smokey and the bandit 2.production notes(when was filmed) were jan of 1980 no way to get a 81 that early.the cars used had the 5 color decals which was last for 80,in 81 they went with a 1 color decal which made them look like stencils(watch all the colseups).in the ending credits it states "son of trigger" 1980 trans am

1981 Pontiac Trans Am turbo (Bandit)

Photo of a 1981 Pontiac Trans Am turbo (Bandit)


I am the third owner and bought this car in 2001 in Roxboro, NC. I have gone to several car shows across NC and won multiple trophies with it. I made the mistake of leaving the car with my ex-girlfriend while I was on the road driving an 18 wheeler and she messed up the engine. So I am now looking for an engine for the car. HELP me please!!!


The car is all original with a 301 turbo engine except for the CD player I had put in it. Black with gold pin stripes and T-Tops. Just like the one in Smokey and the Bandit II.
