Once in a lifetime opportunity. This is a One of a kind replica of the Ecto-1a from the Movie "Ghostbusters 2". Based on a 1959 Miller-Meteor Cadillac Ambulance, this car is the same make, model and coachbuilder as the movie car. Making it the ONLY known replica of the second movie car that is built on the proper base car. The car is currently registered and licensed as a private passenger vehicle. No special license required to own and drive. Its street legal, and safe to drive on public roads. (Please check your local laws for the relevant sections regarding emergency lighting. Covers for the lightbars are included.) Amazing to see in person, photos are just the beginning. So much to see and explore in and around the car. Buttons, lights and gadgets galore. There is really nothing else like this on the roads anywhere. Be prepared to stop traffic and pose for photos wherever you go! You can be the star of every car show you attend. Vehicle has a clear title in my name and is ready to go home with one lucky person! The Movie Anniversary is coming up next year, are you ready to bust some ghosts?
More Photos are available to serious parties.
I have movies of the current lights and signs available online as well. Please be aware that these movies are all about 8 Megs each.
Its very hard to photograph the car to show the lights as the lights and signs are SO bright they tend to overwhelm the camera. So please excuse the graininess.
Highlights are as follows:
Engine: Cadillac 390 (Stock)

Alternator: Upgraded to a commercial 185A Ambulance unit which provides higher amps at idle than a passenger alternator.
Siren: The car is equipped with a traditional electronic siren, which provides siren tones as well as an Air Horn and PA system. The car also has a custom created, MP3 based "movie" siren that is as correct to the film as we could possibly get, that plays through an external siren speaker. This unit can also be used for playing music externally if desired. Backup copy of the MP3 Sound file will be included on CD.
