Tom Cruise Chevy Lumina stock car from Days of Thunder

(Paramount, 1990) This 1988 Chevy Lumina stock car is a real, custom-built race car, with a high performance V8 engine which is believed to generate over 500 hp. The engine has a four barrel Holley carburetor and an Edelbrock intake manifold. The car is shod with Goodyear Eagle racing slicks (which are heavily worn), and the body features all of the Mello Yello branding and sponsor decals as seen in the film. The roof is painted on each side with the signature script of “Cole Trickle”, the brash character played by Tom Cruise. The body exhibits dent damage on each side, incurred during hard racing. A decal on the dash reads “Water Spray”, meaning that the car was previously rigged by the studio to spray water on the tires, inducing a spin when needed during filming. (This system has since been removed). Comes with a Mello Yello pit crew jumpsuit, and a City Ford jacket with matching pair of pants. Buyers please note: though the car starts and is drivable (with exceptionally tall gearing as used in all circuit race cars), this car is not street legal. Estimate $40,000 – $60,000
