Oddly, where most sellers are using celebrity association in celebrity cars to increase retail value, that doesn’t happen here. Aside from the mention that it was Kilmer’s merry-go-round, Mecum hardly cares, to the point that no details regarding the property are included.
Part of that must be because the ride is exceptional even without Kilmer’s name (and its old level of freshness) associated with it. This is a frameless rotisserie restoration with many personalized touches, presented in excellent condition and with exceptional style, so it is sure to make an impression on collectors and enthusiasts without the need to trumpet its provenance. celebrity.
Power comes from a matched OEM Pontiac 400ci V8 engine paired with a rebuilt 700R automatic transmission. Custom touches include $ 4,500 wheels, split dual exhaust, custom crisp white leather interior and matching white soft top, Air Ride suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes, custom radio unit and air conditioning via Vintage Air, as well as the new instrument panel and new gauges.
As the saying goes, a picture is worth thousands of words, in which case the gallery above should provide several thousand. This GTO convertible is sleek, gorgeous, and badass, exactly the kind of car you’d imagine a more rogue (and perhaps less wealthy) Bruce Wayne could drive.
