Yes, Lorelai's actual Jeep is being offered on eBay. This is one of the actual jeeps used in the filming of Gilmore Girls.

The 2000 Jeep Wrangler, customized for Lorelai, is part-owned by David Laurell. And he realizes the its significance.

"Lorelai's Jeep is an iconic piece of television history associated with a show that will live on for time eternal as a milestone in American pop culture," said Laurell. "For Gilmore fans this vehicle is one of the most recognizable in television history. It ranks right at the top along with the Batmobile and the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazard. Every television show or film has that one item that stands alone as being immediately recognizable from the production. When it comes to Gilmore Girls that one thing is Lorelai's Jeep."

Except that there were numerous Batmobiles and hundreds of General Lees manufactured. But there were only two Jeeps ever used during Gilmore Girls seven-year run. According to Laurell, "The Jeep we are making available was used from the first episode right on through till the final episode."

The eBay auction will continue until June 2 at 8:17:39 PM PDT, a little over 9 days from now. And Gilmore-ism.com plans to follow the bidding process.

The auction winner will also receive a number of bonuses:

  • A Certificate of Authenticity,
  • An album of full-color photos of the Jeep in the Stars Hallow town square, at Lorelai's house, and in other locations on the WB lot,
  • A five-hour tour of the Warner Brothers Studios where Gilmore Girls was filmed.
  • Lunch in the studio's dining room, where many of the show's cast members ate.
  • A goody bag full of even more Gilmore Girls memorabilia, including the actual prop Connecticut licence plates and Yale licence plate frame that were actually used on the show.
It's Thursday, May 24, 2007. Nine days and counting...

Hi, amanda elise. Thanks for looking into this. I too am looking into it (though I forgot to mention that in my original posting). I've sent David Laurell an email, asking him to confirm or deny.

Also, there is very little risk at this stage. And it still makes a great story, even if it's not legitimate. If this is not a legitimate offer, the seller has very little to gain, and much to lose. Still, it's good to be suspicious, especially if you are considering bidding. Remember that the final price is frequently much higher than the minimum bid. (The minimum bid is there just to suck you in.) And the buyer is likely to take additional steps to minimize his risk.

Oh ya, it's legit! I work at Warner Bros and it is one of the two Jeeps that were in the show. I have seen this Jeep almost every day for the past 7 years. It's Lorelai's Jeep!  Shocked

As Heidi'd said in the G8M-thread, "..an offer was made that the seller couldn't refuse, so he ended the auction before the first bid."

Has anyone noticed that this item is no longer available on e-bay, it has been removed by e-bay.  Guess it wasn't his to sell or it was a scam...

the auction only ran through the second, so it was taken off, and it was sold even before the auction began.  That is so cool though, I wonder how much it sold for?  I kind of disagree that it is as recognizalbe as the General Lee, Kitt, or the Batmobile.  As a side note, JEEP's are built in my hometown of Toledo, Ohio.
