These are actually six cars, all made for the film.

Designed by Rowland Emmett they were built at the Alan Mann racing workshop in 1967.

Is that the same Alan Mann who had all the red and gold racecars?

Beautiful cars, very impressive in person. I saw the one in the Keswick museum. Well worth visiting if you like film cars.

The Keswick museum one features non opening rear doors i believe..they were sealed shut when the vehicle was sold off after filming.

Chitty wasn't a Mercedes. It was a made for the movie car using a 1968 Ford engine and automatic transmission.

Created for movie ? We have a term for that, just to make the car name about as long as the movie.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang about to go off for filming outside the Alan Mann Racing workshop in 1968... It's a BIG car as you can see! Based on a Ford Zephyr with an automatic transmission, it still drives ok today.

But only a hollow imitation of the real thing.....

It’s a great pity that if you google Chitty Bang Bang all you get is advertising spawned by the merchandising consequent upon some crappy kids’ film.

Your starter for ten.

The original car is now owned by Peter Jackson, and it can also be seen at the Hood Aerodome in Masterton, New Zealand.
