A two-tone Manson family Ford Galaxie from Quentin Tarantino's Academy Award-winning comedy Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood. Murderous followers of Charlie Manson (Damon Herriman) parked their car at the base of Cielo Drive before their ill-fated siege on Rick Dalton's (Leonardo DiCaprio) home.
While the original 1959 Ford Fairlane was offered to the filmmakers, Tarantino and the production declined. This reconstruction - the only car of its kind made for the production - was created instead.
This formerly black 1959 Ford Galaxie is painted by production in a distinctive two-tone blend of Inca Gold and cream and visibly weathered to match the real-world vehicle, with applied rust and dents throughout the winged chrome details, and cracked white and black leather on the interior. It features the VIN number C9AS185879, a V8 engine, a pair of prop California license plates numbered "357 AGH", and a new 350 turbo automatic transmission added for the ease of the actors.
