The third generation of the Pontiac Firebird will likely be remembered by the masses for its key role in the popular 1980s television series Knight Rider as KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand), a specially modified version of the Trans AM model with high tech crime-fighting equipment.
In real life, the Trans Am was available as a specialty package for the Firebird usually offering upgraded handling through suspension modifications, more power under the hood and exclusive styling features.
Obviously, that wasn’t enough for one of the owners of this 1983 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am who at some point of the car’s life decided to give it an extensive makeover and turn it the custom-bodied creation you see here.
The car is being auctioned on eBay where it has received 32 bids (at the time we wrote this post) topping out at $760, though the seller’s reserve had not been met.
A full image gallery of the customized Trans Am follows right below the break.
