This is a rare surviving piece of automotive and pop culture
history! Originally built in 1972 for the legendary Movie World:
Cars of the Stars and Planes of Fame Museum in Buena Park, CA. The
previously private collection opened in 1970 as an attraction that
housed a collection of over 1000 cars and movie props. It also
employed two of the most legendary names in custom car history, Ed
"Big Daddy" Roth and Von Dutch.
Ed Roth, had built some of the most famous custom car creations
ever built and his trademarked character "Rat Fink" is still widely
Von Dutch not only became employed by Movie World, but he also
parked his bus there in which he lived in until he passed away in
1992, despite the park closing in 1979. Von Dutch is respected as
one of the world's most talented pin-stripers. His trademark design
"The All Seeing Eye" is also widely used and popular today.
This custom built vehicle was built by Von Dutch. It is fully
original as the day it was built, with original paint including the
hand painted graphics that were done by Von Dutch and Ed Roth. It's
not just a car, its art!
We have used this vehicle to pull passenger cars on our train
tours. It is an excellent running and driving novelty vehicle.
