Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, one of the most famous cars in the world, is coming up for auction.

It’s actually a semi-working prop from the 2015-2017 UK/Ireland touring musical stage production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and is one of around 100 props from the stage show being sold at auction next month.

They are being sold off as there are no plans for the musical tour to resume.

Chitty’s price guide is set at £6,000 – £9,000 – which would be a bargain for any successful bidder, as the car actually cost £175,000 to build – including the lifting apparatus required to make her fly.

There’s quite a range of props being offered, and some of the chairs could even be used as domestic furniture – although I would suspect the beds are more practical for the stage than for sleeping in, alas for any children’s bedroom.

The Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Auction is due to take place online here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
