A pinnacle piece of the SHE exhibition at the Museum of the Riverina has had to be removed ahead of the show's completion due to vandalism.
Installed at the entrance to the historic council chambers to herald International Women's Day on March 8, the halved yellow vehicle fell victim to vandalism over the weekend.
Police are now investigating the incident and reviewing CCTV footage from the area.
"The three-part exhibition comprises of Small Town Girl, HerStory and Evolution and celebrates the women of Wagga through photographs, stories and recollections," said council's community director Janice Summerhayes.
After the windscreen was smashed in at the weekend, the vehicle was cordoned off from the public.
Fears over the structural integrity of the piece were upheld when on Tuesday morning, the vehicle was removed from the window.
"The car has been removed in the interest of community safety due to broken glass from the vandalism," said Ms Summerhayes.
"The car was successfully used as a drawcard to promote the exhibition and it is disappointing it had to be removed before the exhibition's end date of June 9."
