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?? Say no more. Here is your chance to own an authentic replica of the original Pharaoh’s Mercury featured in George Lucas' 1973 film, American Graffiti. That's right the famous American Graffiti tribute car is up for sale!
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.)
Unfortunately, the family can no longer afford to maintain and show the car so they are presenting an opportunity for the serious American Graffiti fan to own the tribute vehicle. 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.
