1977 Chevy Camaro Bumblebee car from Transformers. (Paramount, 2007) This fully functional 1977 Chevy Camaro, used as the Bumblebee car, is yellow with black racing stripes and has primer and rust patches, riveted cowl induction hood scoop, Cragar SS wheels up front, Eric Vaughn Real Wheels in the back, marine-grade vinyl seats, and even an eight-track player. This is the disguise that the courageous and loyal Autobot, Bumblebee, chose as he becomes Sam Witwicky’s (Shia LaBeouf) first car and ultimately his guardian, sent by Optimus Prime to protect Sam from the Decepticons. Sam and Bumblebee naturally form a close bond and Bumblebee eventually remains as Sam’s guardian even after the Autobots foil the Decepticons’ plot. Bumblebee spends the first part of the film as the 1977 model until Mikaela Banes (Megan Fox), who had refused to sit in the driver’s seat during a sequence when Bumblebee was driving, rhetorically asks Sam, “If he’s like, this super-advanced robot, why does he transform into this piece-of-crap Camaro?” Mildly insulted, Bumblebee then transforms into the sleek and shiny 2009 model. Somewhat “studio-distressed” but entirely serviceable, this vehicle comes with a certificate of authenticity from Bay Films/Paramount Pictures. Sold “As Is”.

ADDITION DETAILS: This Camaro is one of three made for the production. It has a 400 c.i. V-8 GM crate motor with Edelbrock fuel injection. It is mated to a rebuilt Turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission and a Positraction rear end with approx. 4:11 final drive ratio.
