1953 Cadillac Concept Car restyled by Barris Kustoms for shoe magnate Harry Karl. Harry's Le Mans was known as the Le Mans #1, even though it had serial number 02. A total of four 1953 Cadillac Le Mans were built by GM under the regime of Harley Earl.[3]

John Crowell later acquired the car from Harry Karl, before it was destroyed in a fire in Pleasanton, California in 1985.[3]
