1953 Cadillac Le Mans
The 1953 Cadillac Le Mans was a fiberglass concept car built by GM under the regime of Harley Earl. Four Le Mans convertibles were built, and one of these ended up with shoe magnate Harry Karl. Harry had Barris Kustoms restyle it for him. Unfortunately, the Barris Kustoms restyled Le Mans was destroyed in a fire in 1985. The trace of the fourth Cadillac Le Mans went cold on November 8, 1953, and has not been seen since. Several investigators and enthusiasts have tried to locate the missing Le Mans without luck.
