This time I'll post a legendary Show Car, a '32 Plymouth Roadster that has won the Grand National Roadster Show in 1965/1966. It is built by Art Russell and it's painted by George Barris. The car has 324 Cid Oldsmobile engine with six carburetors and LaSalle 3 Speed transmission.

 

The car visited in American Car Show 2012 here in Finland. It was a guy from the Netherlands who owned the car and I can't remember if it was for sale, but anyway on that trip it was bought to Finland. Nowadays it's owned by a former Finnish Pro Stock racer who has won at least one Finnish Championship title in Pro Stock and maybe a Nordic Championship title as well (I can't remember for sure).

 

The car can be seem sometimes at local Cruising Nights and it is very cool!

 

First here is an old picture of it.
