Lil Redd Wrecker

Recommended Posts

The Redd Fox Lil Red Wrecker built by George Barris in the early 1970's.

 

George Barris is the King of Kustoms Built the Batmobile. The truck is an awesome piece, all steel body tube frame, corvette rear-end and suspension. The truck now runs and drives, when the current owner bought the truck in the 1990's he completely restored the whole truck, to make it run and move on its own. When the truck was originally built is was a pusher show car for the Autoramas and indoor car shows, aka trailer queen.

In 2008 the owners son Eric said his dad had been kicking around the idea of selling it, he hoped not. but thought it should go to a tow person more then a museum. here is the number given for those interested - 239 565 5192.

From Wikimedia: George Barris is famous for building many of Hollywood's famous cars, such as the Batmobile and the Munster Koach. He built this custom tow truck for Redd Foxx. This all hand-built body is made of metal, with a tilt styled front cab and tinted sky top window. The midship engine is powered by a chrome plated supercharged 392 cubic inch Chrysler motor. It also features a center steering wheel and a square foam styled crushed red and blue velvet interior. The rear winch for the tow body is also chrome plated and powered by an electric push button. The finishing touches are in 30 coats of fine sprayed Kandy Redd over a Sungleam platinum underbase. On display at Galpin Auto Sports.
