1966 Batmobile Bed?

Post by antman67 »

Does or has anyone ever seen or built a 1966 Bat-mobile bed? I looked online and have come accross several newer style batmobile beds but have not found any original 66 Batman style beds for kids. Anyone know, seen, or done anything like this? It would certainly be a one of a kind.
I have seen a pedal car once though.

I don't know about an actual '66 Batmobile bed, but back in the '60's you could make your bed look like the '66 Batmobile!

I believe I recall a thread on the 66batmobile site. I know they have an 89 Batmobile version. IIRC, someone came up with some plans, or they were vintage plans from the 1960s.

Well duh, I started the thread there after I saw someone selling plans on ebay. Here's the latest search - http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R4 ... d&_sacat=0
I think if you bought the plans, you could modify the sideboard to offer the profile of the Batmobile. Don't forget, someone use to offer a Batmobile couch - based on the front end of the car - makes an excellent footboard.

I've been looking all over the place for building plans myself cause I wanted to do the same for my son, but I haven't found anything yet. If you find anything please let us know ;)

The difficulty is the canopies. However here's a good starter bed, little tykes?

Some bat hubs and the topper would be that bedspread.

Like I said, I have seen many Batman 1989 and up style beds = sure. Now, the 66 bad bed spread is a new one on me. But still have not come across ANYONE who has bought or custom made the 66 bed.
Can it be done? Yes.
Can I make it? No
Do I want one? Yes
Is there a market for one? Yes
Would someone want an adult size bed? Yes
Would someone want an child size bed? Yes
Perhaps someone out there would, could or can make one? Yes
Will someone do the 66 batmobile for us please!
