I don’t know how legitimate this is. I have a hard time thinking this would appear on a Craigslist posting. eBay I could understand since these types of cars pop up on there quite a bit. Needless to say, it would be pretty cool to have something like this. Only $28,000 too, which again, seems a little cheap for a movie car.
Here’s info from the Craigslist.com ad:
THIS IS THE ACTUAL PORSCHE 911 DRIVEN BY CHARACTER 14K IN THE MOVIE DEATH RACE. THE STUDIOS SPENT BETWEEN $250K – $300K ON EACH CAR BUILT FOR THE MOVIE TO ACCOMPLISH THE “PRISONER BUILT LOOK” THEY WERE LOOKING FOR. IT FEATURES FRONT MOUNTED PROP 50 CALIBER GUNS AND A ROCKET LAUNCHER AND WELL AS A REAR MOUNTED MISSILE LAUNCHER. THE BODY WAS WIDENED TO FIT THE EXTRA WIDE REAR WHEELS, FAUX ARMOR WAS APPLIED. THIS WAS ONE OF THE HERO / CLOSE UP CARS, NOT A STUNT CAR. IT WAS NOT DAMAGED DURING THE FILMING AND IT FEATURES ALL OF THE MOVIE SEEN COSMETICS INCLUDING THE WILD INTERIOR WITH GAUGES, SWITCHES AND WIRES ALL OVER THE PLACE.
WHEN IT COMES TO MOVIE CARS, THE LEAST ORDINARY THEY ARE, THE MORE VALUABLE THEY BECOME BECAUSE THEY ARE MORE EASILY RECOGNIZED. PLUS, EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT RECOGNIZED, THEY ARE A SIGHT TO SEE THAT DRAWS MAJOR ATTENTION.
ONLY 4 PORSCHES WERE MODIFIED FOR MOVIE USE, THIS INCLUDES THE STUNT CARS THAT WERE HEAVILY DAMAGED. ONLY A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE CLAIM TO OWNING ONE OF THESE UNIQUE ATTENTION GETTING SHOW CARS. A 1 OF 25 BUILT 1970 CHEVELLE, AS RARE AS IT MAYBE, IS STILL A 1970 CHEVELLE TO ON-LOOKERS. A CAR LIKE THIS WILL STEAL THE ATTENTION AT ANY SHOW. MORE THAN A SHOW CAR, IT IS AN ATTRACTION. FULLY DOCUMENTED.
