Touring Sedan
Sold for $112,000 at 2019 Bonhams : Tupelo Auction.
From the 1965 American slapstick comedy film 'The Great Race' starring Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and Natalie Wood: The 1964 Leslie Special.

This car was designed and built by the Warner Brothers studio for The Great Race. The PVC body was mounted on a modified Ford truck frame and powered by a Ford 260 V-8 and automatic transmission.

The Great Leslie (Tony Curtis) and Professor Fate (Jack Lemmon) are competing daredevils at the turn of the 20th century. Leslie is the classic hero - always dressed in white, handsome, ever-courteous, enormously talented and successful.

Leslie's nemesis, Fate, is the traditional melodramatic villain - usually dressed in black, sporting a black moustache and top hat, glowering at most everyone, maniacal evil laugh, grandiose plans to thwart the hero, and dogged by failure.

Leslie proposes an automobile race from New York to Paris, to prove the ability of a new car name after him. Fate builds his own race vehicle, the Hannibal Twin-8, complete with hidden devices of sabotage. Others enter cars in the race, including New York City's most prominent newspaper. Driving the newspaper's car is beautiful photojournalist Maggie DuBois (Natalie Wood).
