If You’re A Car Buff And A Horror Fan, You Could Own Christine
The classic Plymouth from the movie is up for sale.
If you are into classic cars and classic horror movies and you happen to have about a half-million dollars laying around you could own the '58 Plymouth Fury used in the movie Christine.
For you gearheads, here's what made it the badass of its day:
it was powered by a 318 cubic inch V8
Hemithat produced 295 horsepower. Also available was a 361 cubic inch engine that was rated for 305 HP. Twin 4 barrel carbs fed it gasoline, and its gearbox was the world-class Plymouth TorqueFlite A-488, considered one of the smoothest and most reliable automatic transmissions ever built. - motor1.com
For you horror fans, here's how Christine "fixed" herself in the scene above:
The illusion of Christine “regenerating” herself was created using hydraulic pumps inside the car, which were attached to the sides of a plastic-paneled body double. The pumps sucked in the sides to create the damaged version of the car, and then the film was reversed, making it appear as if the car was fixing itself. Quite a technical feat to recreate an iconic moment in the film, all without special effects. - hotcars.com
Christine is expected to sell for $400K - $500K.
