Bathtub Buggy
George Barris' Saturday Night-Mare Show Rod

  • Original year: 1969
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: George Barris

From the front to the rear- -a plumber's nightmare! It's a spittin' image of the original George Barris creation down to the last sparkling brass faucet! The brass-plated 289 Mustang mill, with wild plumbing exhaust headers and intake manifold, delivers lots of horse to the wide-wide Goodyear slicks. These and the wide boots up front are mounted on brass-plated Keystone wheels. From front to rear the chassis sports a hand sink and bathtub with candy red leaf lace design and striping. The boudoir-type seat located amidship, behind the vanity cowl with make-up mirror windshield, sports a backrest mounted on the rollbar-showerhead plumbing. Grecian styled bathroom wall lights light up the rear.

Dave's comments:

If you're going to clean up on the run, here's your baby. Compare this creation to Bob Reisner's Bathtub.
