A fun job I’ve been working on for a while – documenting the restoration of one of the first Batmobiles ever created. This car was originally built back in the early 1960’s as a home-built project – which was then rented by All-Star Dairies to promote their line of Batman-themed ice cream and beverages. The car was built on an Oldsmobile chassis, with a totally custom fiberglass body.
The car sat for a number of years until 2013 when it was purchased by a collector who is committed to restoring it to it’s original glory. The restoration is being completed in Sacramento by a fabricator who’s done work on a number of cars, including the convertible Buick driven by Tom Cruise in “Rain Man”.
They are hoping to have the car completed for the Sacramento Autorama show at Cal-Expo the weekend of Feb 14-16.
