1:1 scale 1966 Batmobile for Sale - The real deal

What became the iconic Batmobile used in the 1966–1968 live action television show and its film adaptation was a customized vehicle that originated as a one-off 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car, created by Ford Motor Company lead stylists Bill Schmidt, Doug Poole Sr., and John Najjar and their design team at the Lincoln Styling Department. 20th Century Fox Television hired George Barris to built for them a "Batmobile" for their upcoming Batman TV series. Barris had very little time and decided that, rather than building a car from scratch, it would be relatively easy to transform the distinctive Futura into the famous crime-fighting vehicle.
