So naturally, George and his Barris Kustom crew were the ones who designed and built a high-powered, sleek-styled roadster, named after and featured in American Internationals 1966 motion picture called: Fireball 500. It starred three of the decades favorite young actors: Frankie Avalon, Annette Funicello, and Fabian! Starting as a stock 1966 Plymouth Barracuda, one of the Fireball 500s outstanding features was its dual-cowl cockpits, streamlined into twin curved windshields.
Another very exciting feature of the Fireball 500 was the paintwork. A super high-luster paint finish that took seven men, six days and forty coats of hand-rubbed lacquer to get the wild multicolored blends from pearl white to deep burgundy. The Kats at AMT are proud to bring you this very special edition of George Barris vintage Fireball 500 kit!
