In March of 1960, George's Chevrolet was shown in the "Semi-Hard Top" class at the Kustom Kar Kapades car show in Monterey, California. This version was painted pearl blue, and it featured quad headlights and a Corvette grille. Power came from a 1958 Chevrolet engine that was hooked to a Corvette transmission. It ran a custom interior and chromed and reversed rims.[1]
