Nominated for at least 226 awards and winner of no fewer than 51, the critically acclaimed anthology television series “Fargo” has earned itself a reputation as one of the decade’s most celebrated crime dramas. Inspired by the famed Coen brothers’ 1996 film of the same name, the show, which aired first in 2014, explores the depths of the personalities and relational ties of both the criminal offenders of various violent crimes as well as the officers whose aim is to bring them down. With undertones that are at once deeply cynical and darkly comedic, “Fargo” has been hailed as a brilliant and original take on the crime drama genre, and its fourth and most current season just debuted on September 27 of this year with the finale episode expected to air on November 29. With filming wrapped, the vehicles used to tell the story of a battle for power between two crime syndicates based in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1950 are now looking for renewed purpose off-screen and will soon cross the Mecum auction block in hopes of finding it.

From a 1939 Plymouth and 1949 Packard Eight to a 1949 Chevrolet Deluxe and 1950 Chrysler, the collection includes a total of eight cars, all of which were used during the Chicago-based filming of season four of “Fargo.” A 1948 Kaiser associated most closely with actor Jason Schwartzman and a 1949 Cadillac Series 60 Special tied to character Loy Cannon, played by Chris Rock, are also among the group, and all of the cars will be offered in succession on Thursday, October 29, in Indianapolis.

Vehicles in any well-done movie or TV series play a huge role in helping to set the stage and deliver a cohesive final product, and with “Fargo’s” fourth season set in the Midwest of Midcentury America, its vehicular backdrop carries a distinctive air of purposefully understated class and style that shines through beautifully in the examples presented here. Desirable classic cars in their own right, these “Fargo” stars are fresh off the set where they were immortalized into television history on one of today’s most popular shows, and they’re ready now to put in work somewhere new in the hands of an enthusiast who knows a good thing when he sees it—whether it’s in person, on TV or both.
