Legendary car designer George Barris built some of the most iconic movie cars, but he also dabbled in other creations. One of its forgotten cars will now cross the auction block.
This 1964 Chevrolet Corvette custom is far from finished, but one lucky owner will have the chance to finish with Barris started in the 1960s. According to the Mecum consignment, the car was stored for 25 years and does not feature any running gear.
From the looks of it, the custom Corvette mimics the rocket-age cars we were promised for decades in the 20th century. The bubble top also has a very “Jetson’s” feel to it. The consignment also says the trunk spoiler lifts three inches via electrical actuators.
The new buyer will have his or her work cut out. The car obviously still needs bodywork, a new interior and a powertrain. But, when done, it could be a real prized possession. Look for the car to cross the block at Mecum Harrisburg between August 2 and 4.
