Burt Reynolds Personally Owned Cars Will Be At The Barrett Jackson Auction
Icon and legend, Burt Reynolds, passed away earlier this month at the age of 82. And his final vehicles from his personal collection will be on auction September 29 at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
The very last cars personally owned and titled and registered to Burt Reynolds will go on auction Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018, at the Barrett Jackson auction at the Mandalay Bay Resort. The Reynolds vehicle auction will be the cap to a three-day Barrett Jackson event.
Celebrities, friends and family members will be on the auction stage to celebrate his life and legacy. Collectors, fans and automotive enthusiasts will have an opportunity to bid on these one-of-a-kind pieces of memorabilia that have come straight from Reynolds’ “Bandit Cars” personal collection.
Up for auction will be:
1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am “Smokey and the Bandit” re-creation (lot 709)
1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am “Hooper” re-creation (lot 710)
1984 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am USFL Tampa Bay Bandits promo car (lot 711.1)

These vehicles have been signed during tours and special events by Reynolds and other actors in his films. They are also titled and registered in Burt Reynold name.
Bandit Movie Cars Florida worked extensively with Restore a Muscle Car to ensure that the re-creations meet the level of restoration and value expected by collectors and enthusiasts. “They’re history pieces of time from the ‘70s, and we want to keep them that way,” said Reynolds’ friend and business partner Gene Kennedy of Bandit Movie Cars Florida.
“These are some of the most iconic vehicles from memorable movies,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman/CEO of Barrett Jackson. “We are thrilled to partner with the Burt Reynolds family to auction his last four personal automobiles and make them available to the public.”
