The Death Mobile

Recommended Posts

So I dug this old dusty model out of my stash,and decided to finally work on it,and finish it...The Animal House “Death Mobile“.The car was a 1966 Lincoln Continental.Even though the movie took place in the year 1963.And IDK,The great George Barris helped design and build the car..The only thing is,I need a 1/24th head bust of whomever was on the front of the car.Anybody have one,or have any idea whose head it was?🤪

I forgot I had mine.Found it in a box.I wanted to show it done, at a local annual model car show this November ,but thanks to Mr.Covid,that show was cancelled.Only model car show here on Long Island too.I mean I really don’t feel like driving all the way to Jersey to look at some models.

No worries, there aren’t any shows in Jersey either.   NJ, NY and CT share the same restrictions.

The car in the movie before it was cut up was a 64. In the side shot of the Deathmobile from the movie you can see the indents for the door handles which makes it a 61-65.

The recreation that is all over the internet is a 66-67.
