The Joker's (Heath Ledger) semi-truck steering wheel from Christopher Nolan's Academy Award-winning action thriller The Dark Knight. The 18-wheeler hijacked by the Joker and his goons in their attempt to kidnap Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) was overturned by Batman's (Christian Bale) Batpod tow cable.
This vintage three-spoke steering wheel, seen on the truck while Joker trails the armored vehicle carrying Dent, features an ivory-color polyurethane rim and a ribbed red and chrome Peterbilt horn button at the center. It is in good overall condition with visible staining on front and some cracking to the rim. Dimensions: 20" x 20" x 3" (51 cm x 51 cm x 7.75 cm)
Estimate: $2,000 - 3,000
