George Barris'
30 Kustom Cars Stickers (series I)

In the mid-1970's, Fleer Corporation manufactured collector stickers for many show rods and customs. The stickers displayed photos of real show rods--most of them created by George Barris. The back of each sticker had a short description of the rod. You will recognize many of the rods as scale plastic models, while others (to my knowledge) never had scale models developed in their honor.

Sponsored by George Barris, "The King of the Kustomizers," they were sold in packs with gum for 5 cents a pack (see old wrapper on left). The original "Series 1" set of stickers numbered 30 in all. The packs also contained a "checklist" card, on which one side was a checklist of all 30 cars. The reverse side was a "puzzle piece." When the puzzle was completed, it displayed a picture of Barris by one of his rods.
