The car has appeared in at least one magazine (1001 Custom Car Ideas 1965) that I’m aware of. See the second to the last picture. The car’s interior also appeared on the front cover of the same magazine, in color. A copy of the magazine will go with the car to the lucky new owner. It’s a 1960 Edsel Ranger show car that was built in the early 1960s by a gentleman named Doug Mattix and his father. The car is known as “Silver Cloud”. The car did many shows in the North and Central TX area in the 60s and 70s before it fell into obscurity. The car has Barris badges, which I believe were added by the second owner who also showed the car. I have a hand drawn show sign for the Silver Cloud that George Barris signed. It will be included in the auction. There is nothing to prove this is a Barris car and several sources have verified that George Barris had nothing to do with the building of the car and likely Barris signed the show sign when the Silver Cloud was on display. From the info I’ve been able to dig up, the second owner put the car into storage and it was later sold at auction in 2011. It appears after that the car might have passed through several owners via private sale. I stumbled upon the car purely by accident in September of 2015 when it appeared on the side of the road with a for sale sign. From what I’ve heard speaking to other car guys in the area, the car has reappeared in the past couple years at a car show here and there.
