Built in 1970 for the World’s Fair in Osaka, Japan. Powered by a 289 cu. in. Ford Mustang engine delivering the horses to the Goodyear tires mounted on brass plated keystone wheels and housed in the hand built gold metalflake chassis, each undercarriage component was brass plated for effect as well as the wild plumbing type exhaust header system and intake manifold.
Overall design includes all essentials and accessories found in a bathroom. The hand sink is located directly in front of the grille and radiator, while the actual French bathtub is located at the very rear with the vanity driver's compartment positioned amidships. The sink and tub are finished in white pearl with Italian goldleaf lace impressions, then Kandy gold highlights and hand striped in a coordinated color.
All hardware such as facets and shower head are formed in solid sculptured brass fixtures. Selection of the design concepts for these components are the Boy and the Dolphin furnished by Artistic Brass F fixtures. Franciscan porcelain gold-dyed tile squares were installed by Terry Garbedian. Accenting the gold tile are bath throw mats tossed around the floor area. The mats are in wild yellow-gold of long hair fur.
The driver’s compartment located behind the vanity cowl features such items as a lighted theatrical mirror, a vanity table covered in gold metalflake vinyl with a Muntz Stereo tape deck installed in place of the drawer, a boudoir head. For added comfort, two footrests were fashioned after toilet paper rolls and plated in brass. Moon Equipment Co. supplied the gold anodized aluminum gas tank which carries perfumed smog-free fuel.
The headlamps were adapted fro studio Kleig lights, offering the driver an option of either a spot beam of flood beam. The taillights were converted f rom ornamental Grecian styled bathroom wall lights.
