At some point in his life every boy has wanted to own some version of the famous Batmobile or dreamed of cruising around in some other vehicle they saw in a movie. In general, most people can never own a piece of vehicular cinematic history due to price or practicality – until now.

Marvel Studios recently announced they plan on selling almost every vehicle used during filming of Captain America: The First Avenger at an auction held in England, which will be facilitated by the auctioneers Historics at Brooklands.

There are a total of 53 vehicles ranging from cars, trucks, ambulances and school buses and some even include movie paraphernalia such as logos and actual bullet holes.

Auctioning off equipment and props used for a film isn’t a new idea and has been done before by other studios. However, what Marvel Studios is doing by making this MANY vehicles from one movie available to the general bidding public is unprecedented. There are three other factors regarding this auction that make it truly unique:

  • Each vehicle is authentic, is restored and was ACTUALLY used in the film – there are no replicas being sold.
  • With the exception of one truck, every vehicle is estimated to sell for under $10,000 – most are valued around the $3500 – $4500 range.
  • Most vehicles have little or no reserve.

You might be wondering why Marvel Studios would want to sell off the vehicles they spent good money putting together and customizing. The answer is pretty simple – Captain America director Joe Johnston and executive producer Nigel Gostelow are both passionate classic car fans. Says Gostelow:

“I, along with our director, Joe Johnston, are both avid ‘petrol heads’, and so historical accuracy was vitally important to us. When it comes to movie production, the settings need to look and feel real, and these cars played a large part in that process.”

Historics at Brooklands will hold the open auction on March 3rd, 2011 and you can bid on any vehicle of your choosing by telephone or through an online bidding process – even if you don’t live in England.

  1. man i wish I lived over seas for this , but having one shipped over sea would cost way more then the car itself , but I would absolutely bid on 2 of them that 1940 caddy series 62 sedan is absolutely beautiful. The 1941 Caddy is great too, the lines on both cars great.

  2. I would take the Hydra Mobile in a heart beat. There are a lot of those that are really cool though. So Dr. Sam, how many are you gonna bid on? :)

  3. hmmmmm to many to pickk

  4. my question is are these authentic antique genuine automobiles are just mere Fiberglas kit car representations with VW engines?

    • @Rogue – These are authentic vehicles. Most were found in the US and restored for the film. Each car comes with a certificate from Marvel verifying that it was used in the film.

  5. are they trying to kill Jay Leno LOL

  6. It doesn’t surprise me that they’re selling these. It must have cost a fortune to restore them all. And if you can make some of the money back by selling them off, that’s more money to spend on other projects.

  7. Hmmm … anybody the warranty on these bad boys?

  8. I would seriously like to bid on a few of those – but I’m sure they’ll be bid beyond the top of the ranges mentioned.


    • I’m with you Vic. Some of these cars are absolutely gorgeous and would look good cruising down A1A (that’s the road in Florida that hugs the coast).

  9. I donno why, but the old style smooth edges are so wonderfull, the prise is to rich for me do’, But they are all real nice. Also Looking forward to the movie, have no idea if it will match my youthfull experience of reading the comics though. Im hoping ofcourse, and with some luck it will be fullfilled.

    Of another subject, cudos on this great site, me and another film buff from Kristiansand, norway, really enjoy this site, so thanks :)


  11. The 35 Chevy Sedan reminds me of the pick up my grandperents had

  12. The most rewarding step that you can take prior to purchasing
    a car is to improve your credit report. But you’ll notice he’s not
    hating the ones his taxpayer-funded bodyguards are packing.

    To trust the state with one’s personal security is to gamble with one’s
