Whether it’s “Talladega Nights” or “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” chances are, you’ve seen John C. Reilly before. What you may not know is that he’s put his Chevrolet on sale on Bring A Trailer.
Yes, that’s right. This car is touched by Hollywood royalty. It is additionally surprising at how affordable it may be to snag this car from the Wreck-It Ralph and Steve Brule actor. At the time of this writing, 1:16pm on June 26th, the 1968 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible costs around $30,000, give or take a couple hundreds of dollars.
It would really be to the benefit of the general public to adore this cool car.
So What Are The Specs?
It’s a 1968 Chevy Malibu Convertible. That much is already known. Meanwhile, the auto had been assembled in Fremont, California. Meanwhile, the car had been featured alongside John C. Reilly in Winning Time: The Rise Of The Lakers Dynasty as a picture car. Not so surprising, given that for Django: Unchained, Jaime Foxx had also enlisted his horse, Tony, during the production of the film.
The car uses a 307- cubic-inch V-8 engine with a two-speed Powerglide transmission underneath the hood of a car with a turquoise repaint from it’s original hue, having been Ash Gold.
The car itself can produce about 200 horsepower while riding around 14-inch steel wheels with 205/75 whitewall tires.
As it stands right now, you have until tomorrow to make another bid on the car. The auction ends tomorrow at Tuesday, June 27th.
If I had the money to buy this car, I’d definitely be happy to bid on it enough money that would absolutely make the actor chuckle to himself in embarrassment, realizing that he should’ve sold the car right to me instead of holding it to himself for so long. There’s logic in selling the car to the right customer. And way too often, the choice is incorrectly made to send the auto right to the wrong new owner. Yet, there must be a deeper reason why the fifty-eight-year old actor is selling off his pride and joy? Maybe for familiar reasons? Who’s to say? All that I can say with certainty is that to send off the car would be a solid hope to save enough money for maybe something else of note, as far as automobiles go. I’m no expert, but maybe he’s eying a new Lucid EV!
