I've seen the website that sells the KITT nose. They also sell the light and controller for the strobe. Can't remember the URL.

Gawd... That car is in SORRY shape. That nose is falling off, the paint is NASTY, and the dash looks in sad shape...

Too bad... It has potential. I guess this is the car with the GREAT personality...

I like the car, but if you see one that isn't in 100% good shape, your right. It is a pile. But, like before, it has great potential to bee better. But that one isn't worth the starting bid. I have seen the acual KIT used on the show at Universal Studios and it is really in good shape. Though they tried to pawn off a fake for awhile because they needed to repaint the original. If you could put a real computer in the dash, you would be set.

What???? For a lot of us guys that grew up in the 80's Kitt was THE car. You would be suprised on how big the replica industry for this car is. I have loved it from the first time I saw it. It was the perfect blend of style and technology. When you are 7 years old and the car talks and looks that good??? How could you not love Kitt is the question????

Other requirement to participate in the auction is that you can't have ever kissed a girl.

Only worth 13,000 if it came with the tricked up 2nd gen 'super fast' fenders, wings, spoilers that popped out, and the super-duper-stopper option for braking where all the body panels pop open.

Either that or the hot female tech that round around in the truck. Bonnie I think?

MMMmmmm..... Bonnie......

Tell me I have not just read people bashing KITT??? :WTF:

I grew up watching Knight Rider... I have a lot of episodes on tape. I even have the car that when you push the license plate it talks and came with a Michael Knight action figure. I've had it since I was a kid so it is a little beat up.

I would love to have a KITT Trans Am. Not necessarily that one however. It is rough. You can buy turnkey cars too, but last I saw they were over $40K! Thats a little much for an old Trans Am

Anyone ever see the movie that came out in the mid 90's i think? where the original KITT was deconstructed, and put in storage. And then Michael had to put KITT in an old truck for a while, and in the end he ended up in a Firebird Firehawk? Now THATS the KITT I want.

Not entirely accurate. For value, the '69 Trans Am Ram Air IV would be the most valuable. The 8 '69 TA convertibles are too rare to have a reliable price, and all had the D-port Ram Air III engine.

The 73-74 Super Duty (all SD455's had round port heads) would be next in line for value.

The 71-72 455HO (again, round port heads) are close behind the SD's. It's arguable which is fastest, but most likely it would be the RAM AIR IV. The SD has more potential, but in stock form is probably only slightly faster than the 455HO, mainly due to a slightly hotter cam.

The fastest TA in stock form was the '89 Turbo Trans Am.

Oh, and before you call , I had a '72 Trans Am some years ago. I've done the research. You're close, but the 71-72 455HO wasn't the fastest, as much as I would have like to have belived.

i HAD A 72 HO 455 IN A 68 GOAT BUT IT WAS A D port motor with 2 bolt mains rated at 250 hp at about 8-1 compression
I thought 71 only and firebird only 455ho was both round port and hi-compression 10-1
I replaced the 72 block doto large hole prior owner made in it with a rod with a rare 71 4 bolt HO block but could not find HO heads to go on top SD heads were 8.3-1 with popups to pass smog but not near 71HO power 455SD was rated under 300hp and 71 HO made near 400hp but was down rated to fit NHRA class rules at the time
over 1000 SD made but only 100 or so 71 HO's
agree on converts but they are a different class of bird
as are ramair 5 301 true trans-am racers the true rare birds!!!!

Didn't see that auction but rayb is right, they actually had 12 identical cars that they used in the series.

That opening bid price is close to the selling price of the '82 Trans Ams when they were new.

Actually, www.markscustomkits.com has one of the orginal cars. Wanna know what it did? well first you plug it into an outlet and everything lights up and then..oh wait, thats it. everything was hard sodered to a copper bord. It did have a modified 350 in it. They are restoring it and putting all working parts in it.
