其中一个 famous cars from the film “润滑脂” 即将在蒙特雷的 Mecum Auctions 拍卖会上进行拍卖, 加利福尼亚州, 在八月 20.
黑色的习俗 1949 水星被称为 “Hell’s Chariot” was raced by the villain, Crater Face, against Danny Zuko’s “Greased Lightning” down the Los Angeles River culvert in one of the film’s most iconic scenes.
The vehicle was built by legendary movie car designer Eddie Paul, who chopped the top off of a Mercury coupe to create the menacing hot rod, with its classic flames and a set of razor hubcaps that were used to tear through Zuko’s Ford during the race.
The car later made appearances in the movies “Streets of Fire” 和 “Used Cars” before fading into obscurity.
It was rediscovered just over a decade ago at a car shop in Huntington Beach in worn and weathered condition and purchased by its current owner, Dave DeSure, who had it authenticated by Paul and restored to its onscreen appearance.
The car has since been used in several advertising campaigns and was featured in the opening sequence of “Grease Live!” on Fox in 2016.
Prior to that, it paraded “润滑脂” star Olivia Newton-John through Las Vegas to the opening night event for her residency at the Flamingo hotel.
Newton-John signed the car alongside director Randal Kleiser’s autograph on the dashboard, where it remains today.
The car was consigned to the Mecum event months before Newton-John’s death on August 8 and was given a pre-auction estimate of $ 600,000 至 $ 750,000.
