Car Body #14

Car #14was (is?) owned by Larry Watson; Larry had a shop next to George Barris inHollywood, CA; this was his personal car. It was customized in LEAD byBill DeCarr but retained it's stock brushed stainless steel top. Larry painted it CandyRaspberry (Pink) over Platinum (Satin) Pearl; 30 gallons of paint were used and create anoutstandingly translucent color. It was upholstered by Eddie Martinez. Meanwhile,Bill's Body Shop of Bellflower, CA, moved the fender mounted air-scoops into the frontbumper impact guards, replacing the standard rubber tips with the horn bezels (I guess thehorn trumpets themselves were relocated behind the front grille); the car also has customwire wheels. In 1961, the car received over 21 awards including four sweepstakes, threebest interiors, plus several first place awards in it's class.
