TAMPA (FOX 13) -

You can now own a piece of Disney World history -- a really big piece. An original $6-million monorail cab is up for sale on eBay, and it will only set you back $189,000.

Even on a trailer, the sleek red and white vehicle is instantly recognizable as the iconic front car seen and ridden by millions of visitors to the 'happiest place on Earth.'

"This is the actual front cab of the red monorail which serviced Walt Disney World from the grand opening of the resort in 1971 until the arrival of the Mark VI monorails starting in 1989," the eBay listing boasts. "Most of the cars and trains from the Mark IV monorails were destroyed, so finding a full car for sale in such condition is impossible."

The cab is listed on eBay by seller Theme Park Connection, which also offers a variety of other Disney paraphernalia -- from theme park uniforms to collectable trinkets -- among their items. As of Tuesday afternoon, there were apparently nine bids for the item, with a day left in the auction.

The listing says all of the cab's original components are still attached, including doors, control consoles, and seating.

"Park-used ride vehicle, some extensive wear from use," the listing continues.

If you don't have a spare monorail track laying around, don't worry. The 47-foot-long car is on a custom road-friendly trailer. But you'll have to head to Georgia and pick it up if you're interested; that $189,000 purchase price doesn't include delivery.

    Astorino blasts Cuomo over Moreland Commission

    Wednesday, July 30 2014 6:54 PM EDT2014-07-30 22:54:36 GMT
    In 2013, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo created a state panel to investigate public corruption, called the Moreland Commission. But the governor is accused of interfering with investigations and compromising the commission's work. Republican Astorino, who is running against Cuomo, claimed Cuomo didn't hand over evidence to State Police. Astorino wants a special prosecutor to find out if any state and federal laws were broken.

    Archeologists say they've solved a mystery that started with the rebuilding at ground zero. During the excavation at the World Trade Center Site, workers uncovered part of an old ship. No one knew where it came from. Now after years of study, researchers believe the sloop dates back to 1773, built from wood harvested from Pennsylvania, the same kind used to build Independence Hall.

    "A mixed bag": That's how the Straphangers Campaign characterizes New York City subways; some good parts and some bad. For example, the C train breaks down most often, not surprising since the line has 50-year-old cars. But C trains were also the cleanest in the transit system.Straphangers said the worst subway trains were the IRT's No. 2.
