Auctioned Car’s Big Enough to Fill Arnold’s Shoes!


The Monterey Mecum Muscle Car & More auction had many special treats to offer bidders last weekend, but two cars in particular makes us wish this auction was still live. Sadly we didn't know the auction had ended so abruptly but we should at least show you these ballsy vehicles that Arnold once owned!

The first Arnoldmobile was a 1984 Jeep Grand Wagoneer dubbed the “Governator”. To us it looks like a black version of his Commando jeep! It was custom built custom for former California governor. World famous West Coast Customs restored both the exterior and custom leather and alligator-skin interior, while performance specialists H-Line Conversions installed a 6.6 L/550 HP Duramax engine and 2WD/4WD selectable transfer case. The Wagoneer’s 2-tier DVD surround sound system and custom floor mats with embroidered quotes from Arnold’s movies are ballsy details. The back stretch floor mat has the infamous “Hasta La Vista, Baby!” embroidered.



Now, this second one isn’t exactly the type of car you wanna pull up to the parents of your first date in. Drive off on your wedding day in? Maybe, but not the first date. Mecum auctioned off it’s first 6-wheel 1973 Pinzgauer 712M, completely restored for Arnold. Regarded as the supreme European off-road vehicle, the Pinzgauer 712M is the Swiss Army Knife of military transporters. It uses a 2.5 L Steyr gasoline engine with advanced fuel management system, an upgraded high-speed manual transmission, folding rear jump seats with seat belts and tarp coverings.. With a fully equipped back cab, this vehicle is capable of transporting a large segment of Arnold’s Army.



TheArnoldFans has an inquiry into Marcum about the final sale price of the vehicles. We will let you know as soon as they tell us.

Marcum also broadcast’s all their auctions live , either streaming directly on their website or live on the Velocity Channel which is carried by almost all the major video, fiber optic and satellite distributors. For date, channel and air times check out this link:http://www.mecum.com/mcm.cfm

If the winning bidder is reading this….we want a ride!


In other news, Arnold size Mercedes-Benz!

Yesterday Arnold was in California picking up his new ride, a five-ton..not of Plutonium.. but a Mercedes-Benz Unimog pickup customized to a value estimated at $250,000.
