Late George Barris' Prized Hollywood Cars Go On Sale


ABC 7 Eyewitness News' Automotive Specialist Dave Kunz stopped by the show to talk about the epic Barris auction currently underway in North Hollywood and take listener calls with any and every automotive question under the sun.

Listen in the show player below!

Original story:

One of the luxuries of living here in Los Angeles is the ease of access to anything Hollywood.  Whether it's physically going there to see the sights, catching celebrities just out and about, and even having prime access to classic Hollywood collectibles and memorabilia.

Case in point?  George Barris' classic Hollywood custom car collection.

Barris had been the entertainment industry's custom auto guru since its golden era in the 60s and 70s.  One of his most famous cars was the Batmobile from the original Adam West Batman TV series.

It sold for $4.2 million back in 2013.

That was a pretty sweet deal (at least to the late George Barris' estate).

So now, the rest of his garage in its entirety is being put up for sale, and our friend Dave Kunz from ABC was on the ground on Friday to preview the goods.

Check out Dave's ABC report on Barris' garage auction below:
