420. Modified 1973 "Herbie" Volkswagen Beetle from Herbie Goes Bananas. (Disney, 1980) This is not just a car, but a full-fledged character! Vintage ivory 1973 Beetle with signature blue and red stripes and "53" racecar meatballs on the doors and front bonnet. The modifications to the vehicle to create the Herbie magic involve a second linked gearshift lever mounted in the padded rear section of the car where the back seat was removed. The operator could shift gears from the back position and the front gearshift lever appears to move by itself! Car has the four-cylinder air-cooled engine with manual transmission. Engine runs, but brakes need repair. Exhibits minor production wear and age and presents very well. A fantastic, instantly recognizable film car (and character!). Sold on Bill of Sale only This item is located in the Eastern United States and special shipping arrangements will apply. Provenance: Hollywood Picture Vehicles. $60,000 - $80,000
