d by Junior's House of Color. This car was built for NBC and ABC radio personality Alex Dreier to be his "No Expense Spared" dream machine. According to the story it was built in George Barris' shop with out his consent, making it an un-official Barris car. The car was also used in many advertisements throughout the 60's. It was the print ad car for "Classic Car Wax" and was on the cover of Vegas' "Continental Hotel" brochure. The car spent it's whole life as a show piece and has won countless awards. Since 1979 the car had been in a private collection. The top had turned yellow and cloudy from age. We sent the top to DuPont to have them restore it at a cost of over $6,000, now it is back to it's original luster.
