"HELLS CHARIOT"

MERCURY CONVERTIBLE FROM THE MOVIE GREASE!


This is the first time this car has been offered to the public since the release of the most successful musical in motion picture history! The iconic and the ultimate "bad boy" car.

This auction is for the actual. documented and verified Mercury from the biggest grossing musical in the history of motion pictures! Of all the star cars from the movie. this is the ONLY one that exists and in private hands. Lost for nearly 30 years. it was found last year as basically just a shell.  After the car was purchased. it was verified by the original builder of the cars for the movie. nbsp;Eddie Paul of Customs by Eddie Paul.  Eddie is a legend in the Hollywood community! The car was then taken to "The Shop" of Palm Desert. Ca. Owner Dan Condon was entrusted to do a complete restoration to just the way it appeared in the movie. but MUCH nicer fit and finish. The body had NO rust. and the finished product is beyond any of our expectations! It is a 1949 with a 1950 grill.  We have the original exhaust tips that were in the movie. Recreated "Scorpion" stickers on both doors. The razor hubcaps have been meticulously recreated. We also recreated the 3 feet longer versions that cut into the side of John Travolta's car in the final race scene. They are included. We also have the original bent front bumper that was on the car when it rear ended Travolta's car.  An original 1949 255 Mercury engine was rebuilt. as well as the manual tranny with overdrive. The car runs and drives great! Brand new period and movie correct Firestone tires installed. as well as the Firestone stickers on the wing windows.  Recreated original license plates. There are many. many stories about the movie that we will share with the new owner that ties it all together. including on how the car was located! The car has been shown recently for the first time. and the response was amazing! People flipped! We have build pictures from day 1 until completion.  Please do not email asking the reserve. SERIOUS buyers are welcome to call and discuss the car and payment options. Bargain hunters and dreamers please don't waste our time. We can go on seemingly forever with stories and history.  The car was recently filmed for a television show in Hungary. and just this past week Tim Sutton. probably the best and most respected Hot Rod photographer anywhere. shot it for 4 separate magazines in France. Germany. Italy and England. Many more pictures available upon request.

This iconic piece of American film history is being sold as-is. where is. No warranties of any kind are expressed or implied. The only guarantee is the letter of authenticity. nbsp;certifying that this is the one and ONLY Hells Chariot! Any serious collector would be thrilled and honored to have a car with such history. show worthy restoration in their collection. Please email with questions. or call Scott at 760-466-2093. GREASE IS THE WORD!!!
