FOR SALE — L19 Yukon Yellow ’67 Vert

A huge thanks to Mike Buettell for sending this information over.. This appears to be Jack Nicholson’s old L19 Yukon Yellow ’67 Vert from the movie Up In Smoke.

“This innocuous-looking Volkswagen Cabriolet belies its shabby appearance. Far from being a candidate for the scrap heap, it is in fact a movie star. Not of the iconic stature of Herbie the Love Bug, obviously, but its screen credits are just as genuine.

The car appears in the 1978 comedy “Up in Smoke,” starring Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong – Cheech and Chong. In that role it wore a Rolls-Royce radiator, inelegantly bolted to the front. The radiator has been lost, but the car is unmistakably the clapped-out VW that is mistreated in several scenes.

It has lots of dents and scratches, and the top is a mess, but the interior is essentially intact, though worn. It has the correct VW Sapphire V radio, Dunlop steel radial tires and the coveted California black plate UQE 765.”

That rear bumper seems to have dodged a lot of damage, unless it has just been put on the car.

Someone will want this vert, considering who it belonged to.

I can't wait to see what it sells for at auction sometime in the next 3 days. Anyone want to take a guess?

I'd say $10K? I know Chris Vallone in NY might be interested. Funny thing that they don't mention who the car belonged to. I don't think they know, but we do!
