Beatnik Bandit, another Creation by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth.
The second in the famous series of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's show cars, Beatnik Bandit has also been known as the "Fibreglass Wonder". Following the Outlaw's successful introduction to the show car circuit, Ed Roth set out to continue to improve the breed of custom show cars. Moulds for the body were formed from 2000 lbs. of plaster. The body's construction consumed 42 yards of fibreglass cloth, 50 gallons of resin, and endless hours of sanding and polishing.
The Beatnik Bandit was powered by a full-chromed blown Oldsmobile engine. An ingenious Roth-designed interior control stick operated the steering, braking acceleration and transmission.
