- Screen used Bluesmobile ...
This car was used by Mec Blues Productions. This was car number 43 for the movie Blues Brothers 2000. This car was used to run through the construction barricades prior the jump. The car still has damage from that scene.
Buy It Now is $7,499 ...
The car has a 302 V8 engine, automatic AOD transmission. Starts, runs, drives, stops. "S L" is stamped behind rear tires on the side of the frame. The car was originally brown with blue interior.

^ Must be close to 10 years or so since you sold her, Huey?
It's a great car and it looks like someone might have hit the Buy It Now, although I'm not 100% sure about that. I noticed with daBay now, sometimes when you click on an old ad looking to see if it sold or what, it will take you instead to a current auction for something sorta similar. When I click on the link above for #43 it takes me to an ad for a 2009 P71 K9 unit! Pretty cool. Take your dogs to the park in this ...

- It may look a bit different but there's no denying it's still an actual screen used Bluesmobile. I think we still have Bismo's excellent tutorial here on how to do the paint and graphics for the BB2000 Bluesmobile in case anyone here decides to buy this car and wants to do the doors.
Any thoughts if Universal got permission to alter and use Illinois State Seal?
I guess Universal altered it enough to get away with it. The eagle faces the opposite direction and the official seal is "Illinois State Police" but the movie seal is "Cook County" which is not an accurate representation of the Cook County seal at all.

Passenger door would match IL state seal, driver's side you would use my photo. Or leave as is, green door has outline of faded five point star on each side.
Hi Dan, well you have my number. Another earlier sale this year was unit 20 of City of Burlington S.C.. That car was repainted in Blues colors, sold to BBNG out in N.H. Happy that car went to a Blues home. They had decals made up, maybe scanned picture of Johnny Lightning Car???
