It was certainly an exciting moment when a limousine verified to have once belonged to Jackie Gleason pulled up to the shop on "Pawn Stars" (Mon., 10 p.m. ET on History). The owner had kept all of the original features, including the old television and antenna set-up.
He even pointed out a few cigar burns inside that may well have been the result of Gleason's cigar smoking, though there was no way to prove it. He was asking $35,000 for the car, which sounded like a pretty good deal considering the historic value of it.
But when an appraiser came in, it lead to a disappointing result. "Brother, I’m gonna say pass," he recommended. It turned out that there was some barely noticeable rust damage on the car that would have raised the total cost too high after repairs were factored in. At least the guys got to see it.
See what comes in next on "Pawn Stars," Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on History.
