ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - In the market for a used car? Leroy Wall, of Lake St. Louis, is selling his 1998 Ford Taurus on Craig's List. It is covered in currency. He calls it his, "Money Car."

Well, if you want my two cents worth, this isn't just any Ford Taurus! Wall's unique vehicle is coated with $545 in change. The Taurus has 28,500 pennies, 4,200 nickels and 50 silver dollars placed on the paint. The weight of the change added 350lbs to the vehicle.

You'll need drop a lot of coin for this car. He is asking $34,500. That's a chunk of change when the Blue Book value is at most, $2,000.

This is Wall's Craigslist post:

"My Money Car is a one of a kind car that really turns heads! It's a 1998, 4 door, Ford Taurus. It has been finished with 4,200 nickels, 28,500 pennies, and 50 silver dollars. It took 6 months to install the money on to the car, and it has added 350 pounds to the car. It has AM/FM stereo, tape, center console, intermittent wipers, power brakes, power steering, tilt steering wheel, air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry system, power door locks, power windows, split folding rear seat, tinted glass, an alarm system, dual air bags, lighted entry system, power mirrors, rear window defroster, tachometer, and velour cloth seats."
