In 1936 Maurice Schwartz, a partner in the firm of Bohman & Schwartz, constructed "The Topper Sport Custom" for Hal Roach on a Buick chassis. Maurice followed a design by Anthony Garrity of Hollywood. According to Dan Post's Original Blue Book of Custom Restyling from 1944, the Topper Car gave youth to the infant custom-sport industry.
The Phantom Corsair is a custom-built concept car designed by Rust Heinz, a member of the H. J. Heinz family. Distinguished by its unusual provisions for safety and comfort at high speeds, the six-passenger aluminum coupe was built by Bohman & Schwartz coachbuilding company in 1937. Originally intended as a pilot model for a limited production, the Phantom Corsair plans were terminated when Rust was killed in an accident.
Marquis Hachisuka's 1937 Lincoln Zephyr was restyled by Bohman & Schwartz. As early as 1936 Bohman & Schwartz produced fadeaway fenders of the tack-on variety on the car, making it one of the first known fadeaway fendered cars.

Bohman & Schwartz was a coach-builder company located in Pasadena, California. Maurice Schwartz was one of the coach builders.
