1941 Buick Club Coupe, restyled by Barris Kustoms for Var Martin. The rear quarter windows were filled, and the top was chopped 3,5 inches in front and 5 inches in the back. Barris created and installed full Fadeaway Fenders from scratch to achieve a longer and smoother look. Up front George Barris installed a 1947 Cadillac grille. Front and rear bumpers were taken from a 1947 Oldsmobile. The interior was upholstered by Runyan interior. The car was nosed and decked and all the handles were removed. The fenders were molded-in and the headlights were frenched. Smooth hubcaps on white walls and fender skirts wrapped up the style.
