Hot Rod Magazine calls it “the most incredible barn find ever!” Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s Orbitron, created in 1964 and lost shortly thereafter for nearly 35 years, was recently uncovered in Mexico, serving as a makeshift dumpster in front of an adult bookshop! Michael Lightbourn rescued the fiberglass-bodied hot rod and Beau Boeckmann, president of Galpin Auto Sports, acquired it specifically to restore it to its former glory. The restoration included saving the original engine transmission and carburetor along with the rechroming of 2,600 individual pieces. GAS was able to find a duplicate vintage TV and blue fur. And there was enough of one of everything on the car to replicate the balance-such as the spinners on the wheels. This car is out of this world!
