(SUN) – A piece of movie history is going on sale, and vintage car fans
can snap it up for a bargain price.

The 1928 Renault Type NN Tourer that was seen in the 1988 blockbuster
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is due to be auctioned off on May 17
by Brightwells.

The car can be seen in the iconic film’s final sequence where Indy,
on horseback, is chased by a tank as Nazis try to beat him to the Holy
Grail (below).

The car saw a full interior restoration and engine rebuild, before
spending the last 25 years in the History on Wheels museum in
Windsor.
