Infamous Ford Bronco from OJ Simpson chase heads to 'Pawn Stars'

The getaway car will appear on the Aug. 14 episode

(KGTV) - The vehicle made infamous during OJ Simpson's dash from Los Angeles police officers in 1994 is heading to the pawn block.

The 1993 Ford Bronco from the iconic, slow-speed pursuit will appear on the History channel's "Pawn Stars" series this Monday.

While Simpson owned the same vehicle, the one millions watched on television was actually owned and driven by Simpson's friend, Al Cowlings, just days after the murders of Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and Ron Goldman.

Simpson was in the backseat of the vehicle during the chase. His Ford Bronco was eventually destroyed, but Cowlings' vehicle has remained in almost pristine condition over the last two decades.

The vehicle is now owned by Simpson's former sports agent, Mike Gilbert. Gilbert bought the vehicle from Cowlings for $75,000.

Gilbert says in a clip from the episode he's been offered $500,000 for the vehicle but turned down sales in the past. Now, he wants to sell it and use the money for his children.

"There were some people that were going to sell the Bronco to a company ... and they were going to go up and down the freeway, go by the murder site, and I just thought that'd be classless," Gilbert tells Rick Harrison, who co-owns World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop featured on the show. "So I got it from AC and I've kept it pretty much hidden for the last 22 years."

Gilbert even offers Harrison a test drive in the show.

"Pawn Stars" airs Monday, Aug. 14, at 10 p.m. on History.

As for Simpson, he is scheduled to be released on parole in October after serving nine years for his role in a 2007 armed robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas, Nev.
