was a 1953 Lincoln.The car was crashed
by George,and the whole top half of the
car ,and rear was removed.A complete top
body would be made,along with a custom
rear body with deep angled trunk and a
set of double fins for each side of car.It
was the creation of "The Golden Sahara,"
for a client,which any of us would loved,
to have, this famous dream rod on wheels.
This is my ideal Batmobile of gold dream car.
"The Golden Sahara" had bubble top made
by Carson Tops.The fender skirts were very
pretty, and amazingly beautiful to look at on
the car,just by themselves.
and right on each side.The Barris version
originally had bullets that were pointed,
coming out of each side of the grill in the
front.However,after it was taken Bob Metz,
he decided that the pointed bullets,were too
much, and went with a flat point.It worked,
and people loved it.
The car also had a super angled trunk,in
which, was at a deep angle between the cool
custom double fins.1.Left top picture shows
the crashed Lincoln,and front,the finished
"The Golden Sahara"2.The crashed Lincoln
with more of how accident happened. 3.Right
The whole top of car was removed,including
the whole trunk.The car had to totally to be
redesigned,to be safe,and pleasing to the eye.

The V shaped grill,and the angled lights,with in
front, really make this dream car stand out. Along
with those way out double fins,and super wide,
deep angle trunk.
Great for your your favorite retreat,and
vacations ladies.Just think,how many shoes,
formals,tennis skirts,tops,tennis shoes,and
along, with your air mattresses,and beach balls,
swim suits, and inner tubes would fit in this trunk.
By the way ladies if you have the money,this car
could be recreated,but it will cost over $250,000
to have it built.Think of such a beautiful dream
rod,that is not only dazzling to look,but think all
that beautiful room to put your things,in this breath-
taking car.If it was not for accident,this 1953 Lincoln
would have never been turn into this golden dream rod
"The Golden Sahara."
You can see this car in the Jerry Lewis movie,called
"Cinderfella" as the Coach for his character.
