Start Planning Your Epic Road Trip, Family Truckster For Sale

Just in time to plan your family’s summer vacation, this Family Truckster aims to turn more heads than just Christie Brinkley’s when it crosses the block at Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction April 11-13th.

This example of the famed station wagon from National Lampoon’s Family Vacation is a 1981 Ford LTD Custom when in reality the movie one was based off of a 1979. While it was a Ford base the film car wasn’t a Ford, but an intentional mess of a car. The car’s ugly styling was by design and done so to lampoon the cars of the era (National Lampoon was crafty like that with their satire). This replica maintains the feel of the original with the wood paneling, unique avocado green and massive square front-end. In fact, the front end of the original was the result of a second set of headlights being mounted upside down. This Family Truckster features a 5.0-liter 8-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission.
