The Gilmore Car Museum is the only place the world where you can see the only movie set to ever leave Walt Disney Studios – the one-of-a-kind studio set and car from the 1967 Walt Disney film, THE GNOME-MOBILE.
The 1930 Rolls-Royce Sedanca Deville used in the film, starring Walter Brennan and Ed Wynn, is here on display next to the authentic movie set of the car’s back seat, which was given to Museum Founder Donald Gilmore by Walt Disney himself, as a token of their close friendship. The over-sized movie set is an exact re-creation, nearly 4X larger than life, of the rear seat of the 1930 Rolls Royce.
Walt Disney visited the Gilmore Family and Donald’s car collection on September 18, 1964, just two years before Donald would open his collection to the public. He signed into Donald’s guest book and listed his address as “Disneyland U.S.A.”
