eBay Find of the Day: Craterface’s ’49 Mercury convertible from Grease

Filed under: , , , , ,

1949 Mercury hotrod from Grease

Here is your chance to own your very own piece of greased lightning. Well, not the Greased Lighting, it's actually the black, flamed 1949 Mercury convertible that races against John Travolta in the classic 1978 movie Grease, and it's for auction on eBay Motors.

While it appeared in the film's exciting drag race in a Los Angeles storm drain, the hot rod was reportedly lost until last year, when the seller found it as a shell. He verified that it was the actual car with original builder, Eddie Paul, and sent the car for a complete restoration.

The auction includes original parts like the exhaust tips used in the movie and bent bumper from when it hit Travolta's car in the scene. The restorer recreated the scorpion stickers on the doors, razor hubcaps and license plate. He also installed a 1949 Mercury 255-cubic-inch (4.2-liter), flathead V8 and three-speed manual transmission with overdrive.

The car comes a letter of authenticity from Paul and other documents verifying that it appears in the movie. The seller claims that this is the only car from Grease that is privately owned.

The auction currently sits at just over $100,000, but the car's reserve price hasn't been met yet. There are four days left, so there's still time for you to enjoy some warm summer nights in this hot rod with your own Sandy or Danny Zuko.
