The Wagon Queen Family Truckster sold for $91,000.00!

Post by June » Sun Apr 28, 2019 5:50 pm

Beverly D'angelo's personal Wagon Queen Family Trickster sold 3 weeks ago for $91K at auction. For those of you who don't know who Beverly D'angelo is, she is Ellen Griswold on all the Vacation movies. The wagon is from the first movie National Lampoon's Vacation from 1983. The Wagon Queen Family Truckster is probably the only non Volvo car I would own. For the novelty naturally :mrgreen: .

The designer is the same guy who designed the original Batmobile among a pile of famous movie cars. Even the police car in Alfred Hitchcock's North By Northwest with a special aluminum front so as not to plow through the Mercedes Benz it rear ended in the movie :lol: :lol: :lol: .

Anyway I thought it was quite interesting how much money her personal wagon sold for. Especially since it was not in the movie?! My hats off to who bought the biggest joke of American excesses in late 1970's automotive world. June

Notice the Griswold's other car was a sensible Volvo! And no over the top car could be complete without a airbag! LOL June
