If you’re here at Forgotten Fiberglass, then you HAVE to see this 1954 movie starring Tony Curtis, Piper Laurie and Don Taylor. It’s manna from heaven if you like the handcrafted sports cars of the 1950s and includes 8 different handbuilt sports cars – including a Glasspar G2.
First, let’s check out the 3 minute movie trailer:
And now…the reasons for today’s story.
Great fiber-friend Dennis Gerdes – son of the foreman for Glasspar in the 1950s Warren Gerdes – who was responsible for all sports car bodies built by Glasspar from 1952 to 1954 – asked me for any movie stills that featured the Glasspar G2 sports car.
Dennis….these photos below are for you – and other folks who appreciate this special limited production beauty. And away we go 🙂
So where is this G2 sports car today? Some say they have the car but it doesn’t match the specifics of the car in the film. And….for these reasons it remains missing today. But have no fear…Glasspar fiber-adventurers such as Dennis Gerdes, Rodney Packwood, many of you and including myself are off and running and on the hunt to find this special lost sports car with a great movie history.
And of course, the full length movie – about 90 minutes long – has more photos and action shots of the Glasspar G2 – all to enjoy with some popcorn too!
Hope you enjoyed the story, and until next time…
Glass on gang…
