It’s true--the most incredible things can be found on eBay. For instance, if you're a Hardcastle & McCormick fan and survived middle school despite the fact, you may just want to take a look at eBay with a relative or some close friend nearby to catch your fall. The original and only Coyote stunt/jump car from the show is for sale -- fully restored, under the original TV show preparation guidelines, too.
This piece of TV history comes with all the goodies, including an autographed script from Stephen Cannell Productions of the episode “The Birthday Present,” where the car was heavily featured. The car has the original wheels with “landing” marks on the inside, the original seat with a five-point Bell racing harness, and all the accoutrements are in working condition. The seller claims the car “runs as good as it looks.”
Doubting the authenticity of the vehicle? Take a look at the auction documents from Walt Disney Attractions that confirm the car's authenticity, as well as a letter from David Dines, who restored the car. It comes complete with photos of the restoration and all documents for display. Alas, there's no official stuff from the stars, Brian Keith (who passed away in 1997) or Daniel Hugh Kelley, not even a lock of Kelly's 'fro.
Everyone is welcome to bid on this auction--that includes you overseas readers. However, if you are from outside the continental U.S. you will be required to arrange for export and handle all docs and fees.
