First released in 1978 and quickly going on to achieve cult status, National Lampoon’s Animal House is unquestionably one of the most celebrated comedies of its time, and while the Allen, Bacon, and Belushi flick isn’t known for its connection to motorsport or the greater automotive community, the 1970s blockbuster film nonetheless featured an incredibly noteworthy movie car in the form of an absolutely cherry 1959 Chevrolet Corvette. And for the first time since the film’s production wrapped more than four decades ago, the fire truck red ‘Vette seen in the film has surfaced for sale.

Originally belonging to an Oregon-based dealership, the 1959 specimen was loaned out to Universal Studios for three years during the film’s production. After being returned to its owner, the car was related to an actual barn, where it remained up until very recently when it popped up for sale through Wisconsin car consigner, Eyes on Classics. According to the seller, the Corvette remains in the exact same spec and condition as when filming ended. As such it’s in need of quite a bit of cosmetic work and elbow grease, though it also carries a unique piece of movie history.
