VOLO — Have a hankering to own the Ghostbusters Ecto-1? How about a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am KITT exhibition car? Or maybe a one-of-a-kind, screen-used, documented space rover from the 1979 cult classic “Alien?”

Those are a few of the items available during a Volo Auto Museum eBay auction that will be Nov. 1-7 and can be found through a link at Participants must have an eBay account.

Highest bidders will claim most items regardless of price, though a low reserve is placed on the “Alien” rover.

A few of Volo’s more well-known movie cars will be among items up for bid. These include a “Herbie” Vokswagen Beetle from “Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo” that was used at a Walt Disney amusement park, the KITT exhibition car and, of course, the 1959 Cadillac hearse-ambulance aka Ghostbusters Ecto-1.
