I was doing some research on the replica of the Alexander Brother's "The 69'er" that was at SEMA. I didn't know much about it other than it looked a lot like the car from the cover of Little Deuce Coupe and had an Oldsmobile v8 (what more do you need? ) Anywho, from what I understand, The 69er's fraternal twin "Silver Sapphire" (the car on the cover of little deuce coupe) had the same treatment you're describing applied to it. Barris slapped his logos on their work for the album cover photo and his name was associated with a car that he didn't do a thing to.

There's been numerous Batmobiles built through the years. This car by Barris was bought for a buck from Ford, kept by him through the years.

Joe G To each his own. Personally, I think a couple GT-40s would've been a better investment. Especially since they are fully functioning vehicles instead of a slapdash movie prop.

I loved the tv show and had never read a comic in my life. Isn't it funny how different things can be. That car was the coolest. What is most funny about the car is Barris really didn't even design it, Ford styling studio did and all Barris did was put some cartoon BS on it.

Yep, George is no Sam, that's for sure.

I hated that T.V. show. I was a comic book freak as a kid, got all my comics for free after they were disposed of. I read thousands of them. What they show did to the comic book was disgraceful to a young kid, probably 13 at the time. If I had an extra 5 mil laying around I would buy the car and let Big Foot crush it, charging $100 bucks a head to recoup some of my money.....
