The movie, set in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, is a dark comedy about a gathering of a dysfunctional family drawn together by the disappearance of the family patriarch. There were four cars shown — a Pontiac Bonneville, a Honda, a Lincoln Town Car and a Ford pickup truck — which are being sold by a Tulsa resident who worked as a stunt double in the film.

Leake reports that all of the movie cars are drivable, but they have been wrapped to appear old and beat-up.

Among the Mustangs featured in the auction will be a 1965 convertible, a 1968 Shelby GT500 KR, a 1968 Stryker coupe (painted as a tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces), a 1970 Boss 302 and a 2014 GT500.

Other featured vehicles include a customized 1956 GMC pickup, a customized 1957 Chevrolet Nomad, a 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL and a 1970 Plymouth ’Cuda.
