1955 Plymouth custom hot rod. In 1958 a singer named Sheb Wooley recorded a song called Purple People Eater. The song was basically about a one-eyed, one horned alien who came to earth to join a rock-n-roll band. This car is modeled after that song. The car has shooting stars on the exterior as well as on the interior door panels and dash. All of the exterior stars and pin-striping is hand painted. The alien is embroidered on both front seats and on a panel in the back window.
The car was built 9 years ago and has 800 miles on all the mechanicals. The previous owner only drove it to local car shows and back home. It was built on a Camaro frame and features a 402 v8 with gear drive, a turbo 475 automatic transmission, 605 power steering with an 8" Ford rear end. The car is very fast but easy to drive. The interior is very well insulated and with all the plush upholstery, is very quiet. It also has a very good sound system for cruising!
I have a huge file at the shop with details and receipts of the work on the car.
