Well, if a guy had more money than he knew what to do with, it might be fun to park in a warehouse with 50 others. I'm surprised that there have been over 33000 lookers. I guess you have to be a movie fan to be able to understand the fascination.

Now if it had the original paint etc as it was in the movie, that might be something. Almost like taking a sequin from a Ruby Slipper and making new shoes and calling them the original Ruby Slippers.

It may be just the pictures themselves, but the windshield looks higher than how they were originally. I have both a 49 and 51 Merc Convertible, and the windshields don't look anywhere as near as high as that one. Maybe it is the picture or it was raised for the movie?

After they were used in "Grease, the cars were banged around and used in several movies over the years. After they rotted on the studio backlot, the original Travolta car and the original Merc were stacked on a car hauler in the background of a junkyard scene in "Used Cars " (1980) The Merc was used again in "Streets of Fire" (1984)

This car is definitely for the guys with money and lots of it. Its kind of like just owning it just because.....

This falls into the same realm of the white fender Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix played at Woodstock.

A rich collector with nothing else to do but spend his money on would buy it and 'just look at it' with the rest of his prizes.
Neat Merc!

I think you will find that car is just a 2 door sedan with the roof cut off. but they don't tell you that.
