Given that it’s now spanned almost a full decade, the Fast & Furious franchise can likely be labeled as a success, at least from a commercial standpoint. Last year’s film, the fourth installment, dubbed Fast & Furious, (new model, original parts), saw a bit of a return to the original script and original cast, but with more emphasis on proper cars.
If modified vintage muscle is your thing, then watching this latest F&F film brought about a veritable feast of automotive eye candy. Among them was the F-bomb Camaro, that takes center stage in the final act. Well, not one to shy away from the spotlight, the F-Bomb is hitting the limelight once again, this time because it’s up for sale. The 1973 Chevy Camaro, looks street tough with it’s skinny front tires, side exit exhaust and matte green paint with contrasting stripes, grille and bumpers. However being a movie car, all is not what it appears. In place of a reportedly 1,500 horsepower twin turbo V8 is an evergreen 350 Chevy small block, coupled to an automatic transmission. Nevertheless, it is a genuine Hollywood film vehicle, not a replica. Currently up for sale by Volo Auto Cars, part of the Volo Museum in the Illinois town of the same name, the asking price is $39,998. While that may seem a lot for a garden variety Camaro, even a second gen, consider this: While you could build your own replica for less, this is the real deal. And imagine how cool you’d look when your friends come over on a Saturday and see this thing in the garage. While we’re on the subject of Fast & Furious specials, apparently one of the Buick Grand Nationals used in the movie was also up for sale recently, but no word on the Chevelle or the bad guy’s Torino.
