Yes, considering that one of the five actual Trucksters used during filming failed to sell for US$35,000 at a Mecum event in 2013, this copy – guaranteed to trade hands, since it’s being auctioned with no reserve – is liable to fall into a pretty affordable price range when Barrett-Jackson offloads it the weekend of April 11.

This replica is instead based off of a 1981 Country Squire, but that, and a slightly lighter interior colour, are the only real deviations from the movie car.

Like the car Chevy Chase, playing Clark Griswold, drove with Beverly D’Angelo in the film, this Family Truckster is painted “Metallic Pea,” and doesn’t come with the Rally Fun Pack that Clark ordered. What it does come with, though, is a 5.0-litre V8 and a four-speed.
