Indiana Jones car goes under the hammer
The car was chosen to star in the Steven Spielberg film in 1988, where it was subsequently re-sprayed black for its role as a Nazi limo in the film's famous chase scene that sees Indy overcome a German tank with just a pistol and a horse.
When filming was over, the car was returned to the UK where it underwent a complete renovation, including an engine rebuild, with its coachwork finished in a far more dignified yellow hue. Equipped with a frugal four-cylinder engine, the car is quoted as returning 40+mpg with a top speed of some 50mph.
The car boasts a number of unique features that were considered cutting-edge at its time of release. It could easily be converted from a roomy tourer to a utility pick-up by removing the rear seats and unclipping the leather side panels to reveal wooden boarding.
A full-length fabric roof also allowed its occupants to bask in the sunshine or cover up should the heavens open.
The unique machine is estimated to fetch between £9,000-£14,000, and it is offered with a V5 registration document, former MoT Test certificates and a file of past service invoices.
