Back in January I shared some photos from Houses of Wax Reader Bill, who bought a couple of items from the Movieland Wax Museum auction in 2006. His display of the old Marx Brothers Animal Crackers set was really incredible, but he also bought the Absent Minded Professor flying car and Fred MacMurray figure. Here we see the car hanging from the ceiling, waiting for its new home. Bill told me that they hope to assemble it in their living room and also have it hanging from the ceiling with all the lights and sounds of the Flubbermobile.
It was quite an endeavor to get this thing down.
Another photo shows that the Model T appears to be attached to some kind of track. I wonder if it used to fly around the tree. When I visited the museum, it was hanging still beside the tree.
But it was done, and the car will move to its new home soon. The car's motor alone weighed almost 1000 lbs!
Oh wait, we need the Fred MacMurray figure, uh torso I mean. He is wearing an antique raccoon jacket.
Thanks again to Bill for these incredible pictures.
