See the One and Only Shaggin’ Wagon On Display in Branson

Fans of the 1994 hit film Dumb and Dumber — get ready to have your mind blown.

Branson’s Celebrity Car Museum currently has the not-so-smart duo’s infamous Shaggin’ Wagon on display for visitors to enjoy. It’s even for sale! So I guess if you want to drive a furry sheep dog around your hometown you can purchase this gem, which is a total chick magnet according to Harry.

The 1989 Ford Econoline Van has obviously been transformed beyond its original design, but it is the actual vehicle used during the filming of the movie.

The Shaggin’ Wagon brags the furry exterior of a sheep dog accompanied by a traditional dog nose, mouth, ears and tail. Could it get any better?

If you’ve ever had a reason to visit Branson’s Celebrity Car Museum, this is it. Stop by for some fantastic photo opportunities with the Shaggin’ Wagon and hundreds of other famous vehicles that you’ve probably seen on the big screen.
