Meet the Ectotruck, a 1959 Ford F-100 that's ready to take ghost hunting on the unbeaten path. Because let's face it, ghosts don't only hang out in abandoned houses and old museums.
Yes, it doesn't have room for more than three people inside the cabin, but it's packed with features you may be familiar with from the movie, starting with ghost decals on the doors and tailgate. It also comes with numerous lights and sirens, a ghost sniffer gun, and oxygen bottles. It even features bed trim that mimics the look of the tail fins on the Cadillac movie car, plus custom "ecto" lettering above the front grille.
The cabin doesn't have many movie props to brag about, but it's a cool restoration with black vinyl and cloth seats, Lizard Skin liner material, and a modern audio system with Bluetooth capability. The latter is connected to the external speakers mounted on the roof rack. This thing is basically a speaker on wheels.
But what about power? Is this truck fast enough to keep Zuul on the run? Well, there's no word on oomph figures, but the F-100 is definitely ready for off-road duty thanks to a 5.8-liter Windsor V8 engine.
Everything looks clean under the hood, and the owner made a few upgrades too, including a new fuel tank, rebuilt carburetor, and revised three-speed automatic transmission.
As far as the chassis goes, everything is described to be in good order, and the 33-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires will take you just about anywhere, ghost-hunting or not.
This beefed-up take on the Ectomobile is currently for sale on Hemmings Auction, with a high bid of $25,000 with more than a day to go. The reserve hasn't been met, and it's probably higher than $30,000, but it's still a bargain compared to the original Cadillac movie car.
