BARRETT-JACKSON Brings Big Bucks For BURT REYNOLDS COLLECTION

 

Fans of the late Burt Reynolds and his many memorable films had a chance to take home several of the actor’s personal cars at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas sale this past weekend.

Reynolds’ estate carried on with the film legend’s wishes to sell five of his privately registered vehicles at the auction, some of which commanded a considerable premium due to their celebrity provenance and Reynolds’ recent death.

Topping the sales was Reynolds’ personal 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, built to replicate the iconic black and gold star car from the film franchise Smokey and the Bandit. This car, along with others from the actor’s collection, were built to replicate Reynolds’ famous movie cars by Bandit Movie Cars Florida, a company founded in 2016.

The final price including buyer’s premium was a huge $192,500. Reynolds’ second 1978 Trans Am, a red car built to replicate the star car in the movie, “Hooper,” sold for $88,000.
