For enthusiasts of classic American cinema and automotive oddities, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has emerged. The original replica car from the beloved 1983 comedy "National Lampoon's Vacation" is now available for purchase.

The Griswold Family Legacy

The Family Truckster, an unforgettable behemoth of a station wagon, played a central role in the Griswold family's infamous summer vacation to Wally World amusement park. Driven by Chevy Chase's hapless patriarch Clark Griswold, the vehicle endured a series of misadventures and mechanical breakdowns that became synonymous with the film.

A Meticulously Crafted Replica

The replica Family Truckster offered for sale is a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail of car enthusiast John Harbour. Harbour, a lifelong fan of the movie, spent countless hours recreating the iconic vehicle to its finest details.

Using a 1979 Ford LTD Country Squire station wagon as the base, Harbour transformed it into the spitting image of the original Family Truckster. Every aspect of the exterior, from the faux wood trim to the license plates, has been meticulously replicated.

More Than Just a Car

Inside the spacious cabin, the replica boasts custom upholstery and interior appointments that evoke the Griswold family's quirky and memorable road trip. The infamous "bobblehead" figurines of Clark and Ellen Griswold, as well as a personalized license plate reading "Griswold," add to the nostalgic charm.

Beyond its cinematic significance, the Family Truckster replica is a functional and reliable vehicle. It has been meticulously maintained and upgraded with modern amenities, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable driving experience.

A Piece of Hollywood History

The Family Truckster is more than just a car; it is a piece of pop culture history. Its association with the Griswold family and the iconic "National Lampoon's Vacation" franchise makes it a truly unique and collectible item.

Limited Edition Opportunity

For collectors, enthusiasts, and devoted fans of the film, the opportunity to acquire the original replica Family Truckster is a dream come true. Harbour has only produced a limited number of these replicas, making each one a highly sought-after collectible.

A Unique Investment

The Family Truckster replica is not just a nostalgic purchase; it is also a wise investment. Its rarity, provenance, and cultural significance make it a potential heirloom with enduring value for generations to come.
