George Barris Custom Model Kits

Here are some George Barris models. I especially like the ones made out of the coke can, and the cereal box (true budget customs for sure !). Some of these kits you may recognize, but just about all of them have been modified in some way from their original model.

Notice the Dean Jeffries Monkeemobile " Hearse" and several Tom Daniel designs. The AMT Popcorn Wagon and Lil Gasser. Notice the Trolley Car to the left (the last time it was released I think it was a San Francisco Cable Car in a Testors box, something like 1/48 scale) that has been turned into a hot rod.

This picture is from the early 1970's and from my personal collection, but originally from a Dyno-Mite magazine I had as a kid..

Barris: Kustoms of the 1950s - George Barris' work set a trend for all custom car builders and owners. George has done a great tribute to many car builders by showing these terrific photos of many cars that we all thought were lost. As one reads thru the book, you begin to realize that these rolling sculptures are true works of art, and several of these vehicles have been featured in museums and art shows. One can thank George for having the ability to photograph these custom cars during the 1950s.

Barris: Kustoms of the 1960s - This showcase of George Barris hot rods and custom cars created during the swinging 1960s features images from Barris gold mine of archival color and black-and-white photography. George Barris remains the most visible and popular hot rod and custom car builder. His cars, museums, and special exhibits at car shows continue to draw attention, and thousands of hot rod enthusiasts enjoy looking at photos of his older vehicles.
