Special Edition Trans Am
The 1977 Trans Am SE or special edition was the same base car as the stock Trans Am. However, the SE came with a few different styling changes. Removable roof panels that were glass, known as t-tops, came on some of the SEs as well as aluminum wheels that were gold-colored. The SE also had golden stripes, emblems, and the famous golden phoenix on the hood. Golden inlays for the headlight spaces were also included on this car. The build number for the SE was Y82 and must be present on the build sheet in order for it to be a real Special Edition. Many copy-cat cars have been made and sold as Trans Am Special Editions that really were just the standard Trans Am.
