Relive the Past and Bid on This Overland Touring Car that Appeared in the Movie Killers of the Flower Moon

This is a unique addition to any garage.

A vintage Overland Touring Car, notable for its appearance on the set of the critically acclaimed film "Killers of the Flower Moon," is set to be a highlight at this year’s Pre-30 auction. The car, which underwent an older restoration and was fully operational during the filming, comes with features like electric start, flat lens Overland headlamps, and wood spoke wheels, preserving the essence of its era.

The Overland Touring Car is part of a unique collection of 10 vehicles that graced the set of "Killers of the Flower Moon," a film that investigates the real-life murders of members of the Osage Nation—a series of grim events that rattled the 1920s Oklahoma. The narrative captures a period when the Osage community had discovered immense wealth beneath their land, leading to envy and greed that escalated to murder.

The inclusion of such authentic vehicles in the film not only enhances the visual authenticity but also deepens the audience’s immersion into the historical context. This particular Overland model, equipped with its original 4-cylinder gas engine and adorned with a motometer and spare tire, encapsulates the automotive design and technology of the time. Prospective buyers will be pleased to know the vehicle only requires a new battery to become operational again.

The auction, which is set to feature this car among others from the film, provides a rare opportunity for collectors and film enthusiasts to own a piece of cinema and automotive history. The Overland Touring Car’s role in depicting a pivotal time in American history, combined with its cinematic pedigree, makes it a particularly appealing item. The vehicle has been well-maintained, ensuring it remains a valuable addition to any collection, be it for historical preservation or for the sheer joy of owning a car that has been part of a major cinematic production.
