Eddie Van Halen’s 1934 Ford is on fire and up for auction. A custom 1934 Ford Sedan is the latest piece of Eddie Van Halen memorabilia to come up for auction since the guitar legend died last October.
The chop-top four-door is currently up for sale on the Gotta Have It Rock And Roll online auction site.
Van Halen bought the car in 1991, but wasn’t the latest owner. He sold it many years ago and it recently sold again at a Barrett-Jackson auction in 2017 for $88,000.
The red hot rod is powered by a supercharged 350 cubic-inch Chevy V8 mounted in a painted engine bay and comes with an updated four-speed Hydramatic automatic transmission, fully independent suspension, power steering and windows, air conditioning and suicide-style doors all around.
The interior is trimmed from floor to ceiling in leather and suede and hides a smartphone-compatible audio system within a retro-style dashboard.
To make the deal even sweeter, the seller is throwing in a Fender Stratocaster autographed by the original Van Halen lineup and a framed signed photo of Van Halen himself.
The auction house estimates that Eddie Van Halen’s 1934 Ford is worth $150,000 to $200,000 today, but there are no bids as of this post.
