The Batmobile from the original Batman TV series has left North Hollywood, perhaps for the last time, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The iconic auto has been on display inside Barris Kustom Industries in North Hollywood since 1968, but is now heading to a Barrett-Jackson auction in Arizona that will take place on Saturday.
George Barris, the creator of the Batmobile and owner of Barris Kustom Industries, has decided to sell the modified 1955 Lincoln Futura, and it is expected to fetch millions.
For more than six decades, Barris Kustom Industries has been responsible for creating or designing dozens of famous automobiles that have appeared in films and television, including the Bluesmobile from The Blues Brothers, the Munstermobile from The Munsters and Echto 1 from Ghostbusters.
Patch visited Barris in his shop in 2011. See the following stories to learn more about the "King of the Kustomizers."
