5 famous movie cars available to buy today
Car enthusiasts, memorabilia collectors and movie buffs alike will be enthralled by these cars made famous in the movies:
1981 DeLorean DMC-12
Known for its appearance in the 1985 movie “Back to the Future,” starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, the DeLorean in the film could travel through time when it reached the magic speed of 88 miles per hour. The actual car stood out because of its stainless-steel body and its doors that open upward to allow for entry. Buyers today can typically purchase a DeLorean for anywhere between $10,000 and $30,000, depending on the car’s condition and how much work it needs.
1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS
A classic American muscle car that was built with a powerful 454-horsepower engine, the 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS had a key role in the 1993 movie “Dazed and Confused,” starring Jason London, Rory Cochrane, Wiley Wiggins and Matthew McConaughey. Buyers can purchase a 1970 Chevelle SS today, although it will cost them more than $20,000 if it is in decent condition.
1977 AMC Pacer
Famous for its scenes in the 1992 comedy classic “Wayne’s World” starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, the 1977 AMC Pacer would normally be considered a real clunker if it wasn’t for its association with the movie franchise. In the film, Wayne and his pal Garth tooled around in a 1977 AMC Pacer that was decorated with flame symbols on the side. In one of the most memorable scenes in the movie, Wayne, Garth and their buddies sing along with the Queen song “Bohemian Rhapsody” as the drive in the Pacer. Today, buyers can find a 1977 AMC Pacer in good condition for a price ranging from $5,000 to $7,000.

The ultimate full-size, family-style, nine passenger station wagon, complete with fake wood paneling on the sides, the 1979 Ford Country Squire LTD was made famous in the 1983 movie “Vacation” by National Lampoon, starring Chevy Chase and directed by Harold Ramis. In the film, the hilarious Griswold family piles into the Country Squire to take a trip across the country, headed for the fictional amusement park Walley World. Buyers today should expect to pay anywhere from a few hundred bucks for a beat-up Country Squire to several thousand dollars for one in better shape.
1961 Ferrari 250 GT Spyder California
