the Gnome Mobile was a 1967 Disney movie made right after Mary Poppins... and had Norm Grabowski in it, plus Walter Brennan, the Mary Poppins kids, and Ed Wynn

 notice that the a pillars had semaphore turn signals

old 1960's movies frequently seemed to use plentiful junkyards... so many of those cars would be valuable today for restoration or spare parts. 


  1. The Gilmore Museum in Michigan (Home to the CCCA official collection, among other make-specific official collections) has the original two car sets from that movie, the car itself and a giant model of the interior that actors (playing the small forest gnomes) would act in.

  2. The Gilmore car museum in Hickory Corners displays the back seat set from this movie.
