What, you say you always wanted to be a Pharaoh but owning a car club jacket and learning the secret handshake just wasn't good enough?? Well, here is your chance to own an authentic replica of the original Pharaoh’s Mercury featured in the 1973 film by George Lucas, American Graffiti.
This 1951 Mercury with a 356 flat head and a three on the tree, was built by the late, Glenn Shimmin of All Rod Custom in Colville Wash. It was put together from various old Mercury cars with the assistance and direction of such Graffiti alumni as transportation supervisor Henry Travers (drove & maintained cars for the film) and Don Orlandi Sr. & son who customized the main cars for the film (i.e., Milner Coupe, '58 Impala, Mercury, etc.)
Since the unexpected passing of owner/builder, Glenn, a few years ago, the car has been owned by the family and maintained by his daughter who inherited her dad’s passion and devotion to cars and the uncanny ability to build and maintain them.
Unfortunately, the family can no longer afford to maintain and show the car so they are looking for someone who shares an equal passion and fascination for the classic film with this amazing opportunity to own this authentic replica. It is truly one of a kind.

The interior features signatures of actress’s & actors related to the movie.
There is video, scrap books of the building process, and plenty of photos that will make the lucky new owner aware of what this car represents.
