Ever wanted to own your own monorail car from Walt Disney World? Now's you chance. There's one on eBay that's parked in somewhere in Watsonville, Calif. The seller says of the item that it's an original front car and that it's completely intact. And no worries if you can't figure out how to get it home – if you buy this thing (starting bid is $169,000; asking price is $260,000), it comes with free shipping, right to your door:
Here you have it folks, this is the ultimate Disney collectable item. I'm sure many of you have ridden this exact train before. The original WDW monorail front car still completely intact. This is the only known WDW monorail to ever make it into the hands of the public, a true one of a kind collectable. Some people have train cars in their back yard, imagine your own monorail guest room, or man cave. Mount it on a bus chassis and drive it around!! Turn it into your kids' ultimate clubhouse. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a very serious piece of Disney history. The original price on a WDW monorail was $6,000,000
Inspired by the look of the popular Leer jets, Disney Imagineer Bob Gurr designed the new Mark IV trains. The Mark IV trains were manufactured by Martin Marietta. The monorail is completely intact with original wheels, interior, and operator's cab. It is not in perfect condition, but extremely restorable to near perfect. The paint has a couple small spots, and the red stripe is faded near the nose, but it is truly awesome!
The monorail is located in Tampa FL and viewable by appointment to serious buyers. It comes with a full size drop deck trailer that is ready to be hauled anywhere in the U.S. Just pull up and go. The trailer and loading of this situation was a huge endevor that you don't even have to think about.

This price comes FREE SHIPPING !!!! Yes that means delivery to your door anywhere in the U.S!
I can also arrange delivery anywhere in the world if needed.
According to Inquistr, which wrote about this eBay sale earlier today, this is a Mark VI Monorail, and there are 12 in operation at Walt Disney World now. The cars began running on Disney's opening day in 1971.
Monty the Monorail, as the car has been named, has its own Facebook page. There's not much there except a profile photo, but what do you want? It's a monorail.
