This car was originally sold to an employee of General Motors' Styling Department, and was twice used as a design project. Two shop orders were assigned to this car: S.O. #2536, dated April 4, 1955, and S.O. #10029, dated February 11th of 1956. The results were the unique paint, trim and special exterior paint, engine-turned gauge bezel, prototype steering wheel, 'shark fin' headlight treatment, center armrest storage console and second-generation soft top frame. Restoration work was completed on this vehicle by Werner Meier at MasterWorks Automotive Services.
