Movie memorabilia collectors & fans, this is the one you've been waiting for! My father was an over the road trucker who traveled to all 50 states. He loved to go to flea markets and search for treasures. He said that he got it at a swap meet in California from a guy who claimed that this camera was one of the actual camcorders used on set in Back to the Future!Of course I have no way of verifying that information but in looking through the movie this sure seems to be the exact camcorder that Michael J. At any rate this camcorder looks to be in great condition for a camera made in 1985.
It comes in a gray padded hard case (originally for a Zenith VM6000 which was practically identical to the GR-C1) with a bunch of accessories. Included are the main camcorder body, a detachable viewfinder, detachable microphone, hard case, 3 battery packs, 2 handles, an RF adapter, and a JVC character generator (CG-P50U). This is an incredibly rare find for sure! I saw several other "Back to the Future" camcorders being offered for sale but many are NOT the actual model used in the movie like this one (GR-C1U).
I've been hanging onto this camera since around 1989 and I've decided that now is the time to pass it on to another owner. This is your opportunity to add a very awesome item to your movie memorabilia collection. Check out all my other collectible auctions!
