1963 Batmobile is the very first original officially-licensed Batman vehicle fetched $137,000 at Heritage Auctions on Saturday 6th Dec, 2014. Designer Forrest Robinson spent three years customizing a 1956 Oldsmobile 88 with a 324 Rocket engine to resemble the single-fin vehicle depicted in DC's Batman Comics from the 1940s and 1950s. After finishing in 1963, the car spent three years traveling the country as a promotional vehicle, until it was replaced in 1966 by the Lincoln Futura from the TV show. The car was put up for auction by Toy Car Exchange LLC, which bought it and had it restored to pristine condition.
