Lot 249 - 1965 Ford Mustang ‘Movie Stunt Car’ *WITHDRAWN*
- One of the stunt cars used in Venom ‘Let There Be Carnage’
- Believed to have been driven by Woody Harrelson
DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION
The Ford Mustang is an American icon and was originally based on the Ford Falcon compact. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on 9th March, 1964 and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on 17th April, 1964. It was, and remains one, of the most successful product launches in automotive history. The Mustang sold over one million units in its first 18 months on the market and its legend lives on with revised models still in production today after 43 years.
Venom is an American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character of the same name, produced by Columbia Pictures in association with Marvel Entertainment. It is the first film in Sony's Spider-Man. Venom, Let There Be Carnage was released in 2021 and was the second film in Sony's Spider-Man Universe and the sequel to Venom. The film was directed by Andy Serkis from a screenplay by Kelly Marcel, based on a story she wrote with Tom Hardy, who stars as Eddie Brock and Venom alongside Michelle Williams, Naomie Harris, Reid Scott, Stephen Graham, and Woody Harrelson. In the film, Brock and the alien symbiote Venom must face serial killer Cletus Kasady (Harrelson) after he becomes the host of an offshoot of Venom named Carnage.
We believe this car was one of three cars used on the filming of Venom ‘Let There Be Carnage’. This car was used in stunt sequences with stars such as Wood Harrelson and throughout the movie. Presented in red, it is offered as a movie prop and will require some recommissioning especially if driving on UK roads is desired but when finished it would be quite the piece of moving move memorabilia. Boasting OMP bucket seats, roll cage and hydraulic hand brake this would perhaps make a great drift car. Presented with a white soft top, this Mustang is offered without reserve and sold with its US Certificate of Title.
Guide Price £12,000-£15,000
