Working Flintstones Car Replica For Sale

Written By MR on Friday, July 22, 2011 | Friday, July 22, 2011

I’m a huge Flintstones fan, but apparently not as huge as this guy who actually built a replica of Fred’s iconic vehicle from wood, fabric and steel.

I haven’t yet been able to find the source of this story, but according to, this cool replica of the Flintstones car is actually for sale, online. And the best thing about it is that under all that wooden exterior is a functional, drivable car powered by a 4-cylinder 1.6 petrol engine. Although it looks like it uses two wooden drums as wheels, if you look closely you’ll see one of the four old-fashion tires revealed, in the front. Which is a good thing, because steering would have been a problem with the original prehistoric system.

According to the above mentioned car blog, the vehicle already has 80,000 km under its belt, although it’s listed as built in 2011. The top speed of the real-life Flintstones car isn’t specified, but I’m pretty sure whatever it is, it beats pushing it with your feet. If you’re interested and manage to find the actual sales ad, this nicely done replica apparently costs just 2,200 euros. Pretty cheap for such an iconic piece of cartoon history.

And here I was expecting that it'll depend on the driver's stamina to get this car going on the road. It turns out that I'm wrong. Although, I have to admit that whoever thought of making an exact replica of the classic car is really amazing!

I'm a little disappointed to see that you can't move this car using your feet. The picture is really good, though. I wouldn't be surprised if it looks better in person. All it needs now is a paint job similar to the original.
