In 1955 the top was chopped and the car was fit with a widened laydown windshield from an MG. Martin’s objective in building the Cordster was to produce a “Sports Custom” family car. He felt that the two seater sports cars of the day were limited to people that could afford to own two cars, so he set out to create his own. Around 1957, Martin's son, C. William Papazian took possession of the car. At the time he was stationed at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, Texas. When he was discharged from the military, he enrolled at Midwestern University in Wichita Falls, using the Cordster as his daily driver.
