Blues Brothers, The

Lot # 173 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Bluesmobile Large-Scale Model Miniature

Stock #103878

A Bluesmobile large-scale model miniature from John Landis' musical comedy The Blues Brothers. Elwood Blues (Dan Aykroyd) and his brother Jake (John Belushi) escaped the Illinois Nazis in an elaborate car chase that ended with the Bluesmobile flying through the air, flipping upside-down and backwards, up and over the pursuing vehicle.

This model miniature features a fibreglass body over a wood-and-metal frame, with four hard foam tyres painted black, a clear plastic windshield, a small side spotlight, and a metal push bumper. The undercarriage of the model is highly detailed as it is seen prominently in the shot. The body of the car is painted to match its full-scale film counterpart, a black-and-white decommissionedpolice cruiser, with a faded star emblem and "P1" label. The Bluesmobile model exhibits some intentional dents, weathering, and painted-on rust effects, as well as general wear from aging, including paint chipping and fading, and scuffing to the foam elements. The wheels, while included in the lot, are not secured to the axles but can be placed on them for display. Dimensions: 193.25 cm x 71.25 cm x 48.26 cm (76" x 28" x 19")
