It was essentially used to promote the television series from 1983 to 1987 and was one of the most popular attractions while touring the auto shows. This vehicle is based on the 1979 Chevrolet G-Series and comes equipped with a brush bar as well as red wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich tires. Read more for additional pictures and information.
