Dem Brudders review of Mr Gasser
Ed "Big Daddy" Roth was an American artist, cartoonist, illustrator, custom car designer, pinstriper, and builder. He created the hot rod icon Rat Fink and other Fink characters. Roth was a key figure in Southern California's Kustom Kulture and hot rod movement of the late 1950s and 1960s. By the August 1959 issue of Car Craft his airbrushed Weirdo shirts had become a full-blown craze. His many show rods later became some of Revell's most popular model kits
The original Revell model kit from the 60's was in light blue not red. It was Revell.com that changed to red. I also met a man at the Sacramento Autorama the had a Mr. Gasser 1957 Chevy made real. It was painted by one Ed Roth's sons and for that reason Mr. Gasser logos could be on the car. It wasn't blown; but it had it's original hood. It did have a nice engine. It started with a chrome reversed wheels with it inner wheel portioned painted light blue. The bullets and outer were left chrome. The next year it had something like American Racing Tor-Q-Thrust mags. The car was said as a daily driver and needed a new paint job when he was a regular customer at 7800 Green Back Lane, Citrus Heights, Ca 95610. I was to help him on the body which was going to be painted vermillion; but I had to leave to Georgia to take care of my dad. I still had his card, but I couldn't reach him. He might of died.
The box reads that decals are supplied but I did not see them in the box.
