the custom-built truck that Sylvester Stallone drove in “The Expendables” was just auctioned off for $132,000.
The 1955 truck – which was customized by West Coast Customs, the shop previously featured on TLC’s series of the same name – reportedly includes hidden compartments designed “to hold movie weapons” as well as a new Ford 347cid Edelbrock engine and race seats. Jet Li was in the back and Sly at the wheel for a great chase scene where the truck was destroyed by the bad guys.
“The Expendables” sequel is tentatively set to begin filming before the summer. One can only assume that the truck won’t make an appearance in the film now that it’s been sold.
Sly had 3 identical trucks made for The Expendables… so it’s not completely clear which one he sold.
1. High-end. Engine, interior, body, etc. As good as it gets. Just to look good sitting there.
2. The stunt truck… looked the same…
3. It ran… looked the same… but was the beater.
So lets assume it was the truck pictured above, and not the other screen used truck below!
They charge more for bullet holes, or less? Sly is a fan of customs, you may remember a pretty cool lead sled in “COBRA” and there are a few replicas floating around of that car now.
