There is no one on planet Earth that isn’t familiar with Batman movie franchise. Thanks to these movies we are graced with a whole bunch of vehicles being turned into Batmobiles all over, but the most famous one everyone remembers is the Lincoln Futura-based Batmobile from the 1960s Batman TV series. If you recall, the Lincoln Futura already had a design that was out of this world and it didn’t need many modifications to turn it into the crime-fighting automobile. It had that famous black paint scheme, bright red accents and the fake jet engine at the rear and its period-correct replica was, just recently, sold for a whopping $250,000.
The one Batmobile that we have for you here doesn’t require that much cash to own it, and it is not based upon the 1960 Lincoln Futura. This vehicle isn’t an authorized replica, and it is underpinned by the chassis of a 1987 Ford Mustang. If you like what you are seeing you should check this one out as it is currently on Craigslist selling for, believe it or not, $5,000. The hardcore fans of the Batman series will instantly see that this vehicle doesn’t replicate all and every detail from the show, but we have to give some credit to the owner, for trying at least.
You will see that the front end of this Batmobile has similar styling bits and pieces, as well as pinstriping just like the original version, while a set of flared arches accented by that orange stripe pull your eyes to its side. Those chrome wheels, of course, are not the original one, nor even close to the original, but hey they actually look awesome (when you close one eye and squint on the other). At the back, you will see the famous huge fins that stick up high over the rear wheel arches, and they have been replicated and joined by three exhaust pipes protruding from the decklid.
To complete the outside look, the owner of this remarkable try for a Batmobile, actually transformed its interior to look at least somewhat close to the original one seen on TV. All things considered, this is a great looking Batmobile done by one of the show’s fans, and you have to consider the fact that a lot of love and effort went into it, which is why the price tag of just $5,000 seems a bit low, but hey it is what it is. Maybe this guy’s next project car will be a lot better. Perfection comes with practice, right?!
