Driving the Ghostbusters Cadillac Ecto 1
With more than one million toy versions sold, this is one of the most popular movie cars ever. This is the legendary Ecto-1 company car of the Ghostbusters. For those who don’t know, this is the iconic 1959 Cadillac professional chassis designed and built by the Miller-Meteor company. The 1959 model year is recognizable by the long tail fins, largest on a production car, making it irresistible for the Cadillac collectors.
Only around 400 1959 ambulances were ever made. This particular one is powered by 6.3 liter V8 engine that produced about 320 horsepower. The horsepower number sounds plenty but when you hear that this car weights 3 tons you will think twice about it. If you wonder how long this car is, well it’s huge 20 feet long.
