The 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Special Edition was an exterior option for the 1977 Firebird Trans Am that was available between 1977 and 1978. Also known as "Blackbird", it was priced higher than the simultaneously built Formula model and underwent several revisions in 1979. The SE was provided either as a coupe or as a T-top and had custom golden interior and exterior trims. 15,567 of the 68,745 Trans Am were ordered with this package.
The car gained popularity for its appearance in the 1977 action comedy film Smokey and the Bandit.
