Original K.I.T.T. #1177





Owner: Unknown; private invidual in England

Description: This is original screen used car #1177. This car was first used in the series in the mid-first season until the end of the series. At one point, it was believed to be the hero car with the working dash in it. After the series ended, the car went on tour with the Budweiser World of Wheels show. The car was outfitted with a brake line lock, rear hatch popper cable and more. The car originally came with the tan vinyl PMD interior - which can be seen in a few first season episodes ("A Nice, Indecent Little Town" and "The Topaz Connection").

In 2001, the car was updated with new electronics by Mark's Custom Kits. You can learn more about it here. The original dashboard was removed and sold to a private individual. The car still sports its original, green-lighted gullwing steering wheel, however.

In 2004, this car was sold on Ebay for $54,625 and exported to England, where it remains today.

Do you know the current owner of this car? If so, let us know - we would be interested in talking with them!
