I saw this car close up. Funny how by todays standards of customizing and bodywork that this car is far from pristine. Simple plumbing fixtures and poor bodywork are all over this car. Looks cool though.

Yep I've seen it up close also, and the "work" done on it was less than, can we say stellar? But still a cool car. Course it really didnt have to be PERFECT for tv anyways...

All this said, anyone wanna guess what it will sale for?

( ima say in the 100k range is all)

If Trigger can sell for 267k and the old bonneville with long horns and pistols and such all over it, for well over 200k then the batmobile would surely bring close to 300k or better i bet ya. Will have to wait and see though.

I'm going to guess around the $150,000 mark. I've seen it in person too, and while to craftmanship is a tad shoddy, it still has the cool factor! If I had the money, I'd buy it.

Will hafta keep track for sure... I was thinkin about the same price as yours, why i said in the 100k range. (lots o leeway for sure) but If it climbs past the 175k mark i will be surprised. Guess we'll see if someone develops a 'stiffy' for sure.... ;)

I figured it would go for at least 5 mil, if it would have sold 5 years ago at Barrett Jackson it would have gone further I think. I still can't believe some of the Shelbys that went for under 100k but a 70 chevelle big block convertible goes for 200k.

As cool as it is, I can think of alot better things to spend 4.6 million on.

I saw it in person a couple of times, and while it shows it age, it's still an awesome car. It was never built to last 45+ years. It remains my favorite incarnation of the Batmobile.

Want a Batmobile but don't want to pay 7 figures for it? Buy a tribute car instead.

This ones for sale and could be yours!



[Seller's Description] "Holy Smokes! -One off- Salute to Batman TV show’s 1966 Batmobile. Here is your chance to cruise just like the Caped Crusader of Gotham City fame.
Donor car =1988 Ford Escort GT 1.9 turbo 5 speed with 132,300 Miles. Tagged and emission- tested as street legal in NJ. “Bat” is the most photographed vehicle of The Tri-state region . It is the most fun you can have without getting pulled over . Though Cops- my fellow crimefighters- have stopped the Batmobile, they quickly apologize for their lights and then enthusiastically ask for photos.
This crowd drawing , eye-catcher was originally a garden variety 3 door hatchback before clever structural modification by creator Paul F. of Minnesota : box tubing welded to frame- roll bars of race car roll bar stock- wings are tubed frames with sheet aluminum skin – Only fiberglass in 3 small areas- nostril cowl; across top of windshield frame and insert of triangulated trunk lid (modified from original hatchback).
Signature chrome/red Batmobile 3 pipe tree is live exhaust as well as the double wall turbo blaster( between tail lites) with switched red LED insert. Nostril cowl and below front bumper is set of legit emergency red strobes. Engine tranny, suspension, drive train, are all stock . Interior Bat gadgets as shown. This crime fighting vehicle is finished in the 21st century update of “ Bat –Fuzz” which protects it from Explosive devices, IED’s etc. Ha! (aka Herculiner)
This unmatched attention getter can be your cruiser, car show hit or money making machine."

Sad, but I can still remember watching Batman on TV (along with Soupy Sales) with my girlfriend, now my wife.

Then, we'd hop into my 65 Vette and go for a White Castle hamburger.
