OSCAR winner Adrien Brody has sold off his 1955 CADILLAC DEVILLE car to help those less fortunate.

The movie star bought the classic car as a gift for his father after filming LIBERTY HEIGHTS in 1999, but the motor hardly left the family garage.

Brody says, "He didn't drive it around much because it was too flashy for Queens.

"It has been a really good year for me, so it's time to give something back, and auction this baby off for charity."

Brody's classic Cadillac raised $13,000 (GBP8,125) at the Pebble Beach Elegance Car Show last month (AUG03).
