Ebay Description:

here is an opportunity to own a unique, one of a kind car that is a piece of motion picture history.

this is the actual prototype of the famous "bounty hunter" dune buggy created for the 1969 movie "the big bounce". the big bounce was ryan o'neal's first major motion picture leading role. this car was built and created for this movie. this was the very first bounty hunter built. its sister car was crashed on screen in the movie by ryan's brother. this car was purchased from the production company which shot the movie. the bounty hunter is one of the most prized of all dune buggies. it was built in burbank california. it is one of the few buggies of that era that was not a copy of a meyers manx.......the bounty hunter was a different concept, and looked different too. it is designed as a four passenger buggy. the bounty hunter was so distintive in appearance and concept, that it eventually went into production in england as well. there are few of these around today...........fewer in this nice condtion...........fewer yet as period correct and original.............and certainly none older, as this was the prototype for the entire production. this buggy runs and drives great. 1600 cc dual carb motor. currently street legal and ownership paperwork in hand. it even has some kind of wierd heater that is supposed to work pretty cool..........but i'm in southern california, so it's not needed (and i haven't figured out how to work it). engine dress up kit with chrome and nice touches. safety roll bar. nice paint and body. this buggy even has a honeycomb type sub floor and real original 60's "HI" rubber flooring. side storage pockets. new bucket seat upolstery. the car is sold with the period correct slotted aluminum mags and tires shown. if you want the 5 spoke wide e.t. mags and tires instead.............add $500 to the winning bid.
too many extras to list and just too much fun to have on the street. always a southern california car.
