|This car is the product of Bill Mitchell's General Motor Styling Studio. It was built for Mitchell's friend Ozzie Olson who was an Indy Car sponsor of the Olsonite Eagles Racing Team.|
Styling cars were produced for special people like General Curtis LeMay, Bunkie Knudsen, Liz Taylor and others. Styling cars were equipped with a lot of items not on the normal accessory list. This car has a special Pearlescent Blue paint job and the trim tag paint code reads 'SPEC.' The lower front fenders were modified by filling the scallops and creating openings for side-mounted exhausts. This car also has six tail lights, custom Dayton Wire Wheels (Kelsey Hayes knock-offs) and floor grills. It has a 327 cubic-inch engine developing 300 horsepower coupled to an automatic transmission.
This car represents another fascinating chapter in the story of Bill Mitchell and his GM Styling Studio.
