A Biodiesel-powered El Camino once owned by literal tree-hugger (climbing is like hugging, right?) Daryl Hannah has sold for $2250 in an online auction.

The environmental activist actress had the 1983 Chevy converted to run on biodiesel about a decade ago and used it as her daily driver for four years before selling in on Ebay in 2008 for a reported $15,600. She described the matte black-panted pickup car as the “baddest assest biodiesel 'el camino' ever.”

The “Splash” siren, who was arrested outside the White House this past August during a protest against the Keystone oil pipeline, ran the V8-powered El Camino largely on her own home-brewed fuel. One of several biodiesel vehicles she has owned, Hannah once told Architectural Digest that the car is good for up to 40 mpg.

The El Camino’s current seller, Nashville, Tenn., tech entrepreneur Freddie O'Connell, told the Nashville Scene that the arrival of a baby daughter is forcing him to switch to a larger car with more modern safety features, and is looking to replace it with an electric Nissan Leaf.
