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.

    When he's not slaying three-headed beasts with his olive-wood club, Hercules carves out time for the little people. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson treated fans from the Harlem Boys and Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters NYC to an advance screening of his new film. I caught up with the larger-than-life action hero after the big surprise.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
