    Description

    Sean Connery "James Bond 007" Moon Buggy from Diamonds Are Forever. (Eon Prod., 1971) The Moon Buggy was conceptualized by Academy Award-winning production designer Ken Adam and built by famed California custom car designer/fabricator Dean Jeffries. The Moon Buggy was used in the famous chase sequence as James Bond (Sean Connery) escapes from Willard Whyte's Tectronics Space Center outside Las Vegas in the Nevada desert. The 4-wheeled vehicle is constructed from a welded tubular steel frame clad in aluminum paneling and cockpit covered with a Plexiglas dome hinged on one side and a radar dish unit mounted behind. An "arm" with claw implement is attached on each side and a red sphere is attached at the rear. Unlike other Bond vehicles, there was only one Moon Buggy built. Following production it was used as the centerpiece of a worldwide publicity tour to promote the film. Over time it fell in a state of disrepair until it was restored in the 1990s. Measures 163 in. long x 101 in. high x 101 in. wide. Exhibits expected age and wear with left headlight damage. An instantly recognizable icon in the James Bond film franchise. Mechanicals untested. This item is located in the Eastern United States and special shipping arrangements will apply. Provenance: Christie's South Kensington, December 14, 2004, Lot 204.
