Jada – 1/32 Scale – Batman Classic TV Series – Classic TV Series Batmobile Diecast Scale Model Replica
In August 1965, the Batman TV show producers approached car customizer Dean Jeffries to build a Batmobile for their new show. Jeffries was going to use a 1959 Cadillac, but ultimately he turned down the project because he felt he wouldn’t have enough time to complete the car.
Producer William Dozier then approached George Barris, of Barris Kustom City, to see if he was interested in building a Batmobile for the upcoming show. The only catch was the car had to be ready in a mere three weeks after the contract was signed.
Seeing the bat-like qualities his 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car already had, George knew it was the perfect answer to the quandary 20th Century Fox had created.
The Batmobile was equipped with a roll bar, beacon, side warning lights and a one-of-a kind Emergency Bat-Turn lever which enabled it to turn around almost instantly at top speed.
