    Description

    Ed "Big Daddy" Roth Studio - "Plymouth Roadrunner" Illustration Original Art (Roth, 1967). One of the most important figures from the Southern California car culture, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth single-handedly promoted the cult of customized cars into a national mania during the 1960s, with his one-of-a-kind custom cars and anti-hero cartoon character, Rat Fink. "Plymouth Roadrunner" is rendered in marker on a 17" x 22" sheet of illustration paper. There is some slight edge wear, and a small amount of glue staining at the lower right; otherwise the condition is Very Good.
