The 1970s saw the end of the muscle car era. Government emissions regulations and soaring gas prices wreaked havoc on performance. But the decade, aided by one classic movie, did produce one iconic muscle car that was known much more for its attitude than its performance. We have resurrected the attitude and sent it to the gym for a serious infusion of performance, all within the confines of the original look. BKPE is proud to introduce the Trans Am Bandit–Stage I.

We invite our clients to review these specifications and available options and then click on Pricing Information to obtain information on how to order your own Bandit.
