Description
Lot #2004 - This was given away by TV LAND in Hollywood. It is fully restored as the car that appeared in the 4th season of "I Love Lucy." In Episode 109, titled "Lucy Learns to Drive," preparing for their trip west, the Ricardos buy a new car, and Lucy wants to drive it around the block. After giving her one driving lesson, Ricky is a beaten man, but Lucy is so confident that she offers to teach Ethel Mertz how to drive. The result is a complete fiasco. (The 1955 Pontiac convertible seen in this and the following episodes was part of a product placement deal with General Motors.) The episode first aired January 3, 1955. The same car was used in several subsequent episodes: Episode 110, titled "California Here We Come," first aired January 10, 1955; Episode 111, titled "First Stop," first aired January 17, 1955; Episode 112, titled "Tennessee Bound," first aired January 24, 1955; Episode 113, titled "Ethel's Hometown," first aired January 31, 1955; and Episode 114, titled "LA at Last," first aired February 7, 1955.
