Your Chance To Buy A HYDRA Truck From The Set Of Captain America: The First Avenger!
Read on for how you can buy one of the vintage cars or US Army/HYDRA trucks featured in the WWII set movie and hear what the executive producer has to say about making the movie look as historically accurate as possible...
Remember when all that work was going on in Manchester last year? Each day, we had more and more pictures of the construction going on there, with the arrival of the WWII era vehicles adding to the effect of transforming a modern British street into 1940's New York. As well as that, we've also seen plenty of other images featuring US Army vehicles and even a few HYDRA trucks! Well, those same vehicles are now going up for sale, giving fans a chance to own a part of the highly anticipated movie from Marvel Studios. Here are some excerpts from the report over at The Telegraph.
More than 50 cars from Marvel Studios' Captain America: The First Avenger will join the Historics at Brooklands sale on March 3, including a 1941 Cadillac Series 61 featuring art deco styling and a 1933 Dodge Tow Truck, sourced from the Nevada Desert and complete with bullet holes on the front wing and bonnet.
The Captain America vehicles were acquired by the film's executive producer Nigel Gostelow. "I, along with our director, Joe Johnston, are both avid 'petrolheads', and so historical accuracy was vitally important to us," said Gostelow. "When it comes to movie production, the settings need to look and feel real, and these cars played a large part in that process. Ultimately they looked great on set, and pleasingly, were correct and very well prepared."
All of the cars and trucks in the auction were built between 1931-48 and, says Historics at Brooklands auction director Edward Bridger-Stille, there will be "extremely low reserves set across the board".
