1974 BLUES BROTHERS BLUESMOBILE


“IT'S GOT COP TIRES, COP SUSPENSION, COP SHOCKS. IT'S A MODEL MADE BEFORE CATALYTIC CONVERTERS SO IT'LL RUN GOOD ON REGULAR GAS." 


THE WORLD FAMOUS, BLUESMOBILE! FOR THE MOVIE ,THE BLUESMOBILE WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT FROM A CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL CAR. IT WAS PAINTED UP TO MOCK A MOUNT PROSPECT POLICE CAR. THE DIFFERENCE, ONLY CALIFORNIA CARS HAD TAN INTERIORS, WHILE MT. PROSPECT WERE EITHER BLUE OR BLACK. THIS IS A REAL CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL CAR, CALIFORNIA BORN AND RAISED WITH NO RUST. THE SHOW WORTHY PAINT HAD HOLLYWOOD MAKE UP APPLIED BY AN ARTIST TO GIVE THE AFFECT OF A DIRTY, RUSTED AND DAMAGED CAR. IT HAS THE HYSTERICAL, OVER-SIZED, LOUD SPEAKER MOUNTED TO THE ROOF, AND IT REALLY WORKS!!!!!! IN THE TRUNK ARE THE ORIGINAL COP LIGHTS, CB RADIO AND PASSENGER CAGE THAT WERE REMOVED WHEN THE CAR WAS CONVERTED INTO A BLUESMOBILE. THE BLUESMOBILE IS BY FAR ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS, AMUSING CARS EVER IN TV / MOVIE HISTORY. IT IS A FAVORITE AMONG OUR MUSEUM GUESTS WITH A NON-STOP FLASH OF CAMERAS GOING OFF FROM PEOPLE GETTING THEIR PICTURES TAKEN WITH IT AND THE BLUES BROTHERS.
