Iconic car from the film ‘Grease’ is going under the hammer

Fancy yourself in the front seat of the very car John Travolta drove in the iconic film; Grease? The car dubbed as ‘Hell’s Chariot’ which was used in the final scene by Travolta himself is expected to be auctioned later this month in Beverley Hills for up to $600,000.

Everyone knows the lyrics to every song and the jet black and emblazoned with flames, customised 1949 Mercury Series 9CM is most famous for the drag race between John Travolta’s character Danny and the leader of the rival gang, Craterface.

The car is to be auctioned at Julien’s Auctions on the last Friday and Saturday in June. A whole fleet of famous Hollywood cars are set to be sold, but what makes this car stand out above the rest is what sits on the dashboard of this beautiful car – Olivia Newton John’s signature!

Darren Julien, president of Julien’s Auctions said: ‘This is one of the most historic film cars to ever come up for auction. It is being sold for the first time as it was a car thought to have been lost. It was actually stored away in a garage for decades after the film was produced and only recently discovered.’

The original Mercury was built and customised by Eddie Paul at Eddie Paul of Customs, who made all 42 original cars seen in the film.

Other cars which are to be auctioned include the 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo seen in The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, as well as the Dodge Charger driven in The Dukes of Hazzard and the KITT car from Knight Rider.

If you decide to become part of the long line of bidders, The Beverly Hills auction House is open to visitors to the exhibition from Monday 22 to Friday 26 June.
