You can own the ‘Optimus Prime’ cabover truck from the ‘Bumblebee’ movie for just $21K


An old-school truck that made an appearance in a major Hollywood blockbuster is now up for sale.

The 1987 Freightliner COE is currently up for sale on a Facebook Marketplace truck selling group with a listed price of $21,600.

The seller says, “This truck was featured in the ending scene of the motion picture Bumblebee, so it is the legitimate Optimus Prime.”

According to the seller, the truck isn’t just Hollywood memorabilia — it’s a daily work truck. “This is a very strong running truck. I use it daily, running an average 2500 miles/wk. I have no problem taking this truck anywhere in the country today. I’m only selling to make room for a newer truck with more creature comforts, and yes…I know…ELD,” the listing said. “I have zero clue on the total miles. It’s got 85k on an overhaul without paperwork. New front rear end. New air compressor as of 2/23/20.”

Other features include:

  • Cummins Big Cam 3 350 HP
  • 9 Speed
  • 3.42 rears
  • 228″ WB
  • Drives 65%, Steers New
  • 11r24.5’s
  • Truck has new (but mediocre) paint.
  • RLK visor
  • American Eagle bumper

The truck is currently located at the seller’s home in Seward, Nebraska.
