Who you gonna call? 1959 Cadillac Ghostbuster Replica heading up for auction at Historics

A 1959 Cadillac that was first turned into an ambulance by coachbuilder S&S for a Church in Maryland, USA, and then underwent a full transformation to become the Ghostbuster movie car replica you see here, is now being auctioned at Historics at Brooklands forthcoming sale on the 25th of September.

Having been saved from the crusher in 2007, coachbuilder Chris Reynolds has since spent £65,000 (about $100,000) to bring it up to shape and create a faithful recreation of the 1984 film car.

“The car’s ghostly presence is in stark contrast to the real life experience of bringing it back to life – and the cost of doing so!,” says Chris Reynolds. “The car was about to be scrapped when I discovered it and the restoration has been a real labour of love, and hopefully it will find a worthy home.”

The larger than life Caddy measures 20ft long and 6.5ft wide, and tips the scales at a mighty 2.55 tones. It is powered by a 6.5 liter V8 engine that returns a gas-station-friendly 8mpg UK (equal to 35.3 lt/100km and 6.7mpg US).

According to the organizers of the auction, the show-and-tell Ghostbuster’s replica is expected to fetch offers in the region of £75,000 – £85,000 (US$115,000 to $130,000).
