I was watching some old Batman vids (yeah, yeah I know... more camp than a row of tents!!!)

I saw this and took a screenshot. Episode 16 from series 1 1966. I think maybe the first episode with "The Joker" - anyway I digress...


Does anyone know the car?

I have NO idea ......


Cheers, Mudgy

When Eddie, Fletch and I were in the States in 66 and staying with Dick Scritchfield there was a guy in the L.A. Roadsters who had just got his car on the road and I reckon that's his car. Guys name was Carl Schode or Schrode. I read somewhere that he had sold the car, got something else and is no longer with us. Scritch probably got him that gig with the movie crew as he had contacts in the industry. Being a 1966 movie and Carl's car being brand new that would all fit.

Thanks Peter for the first hand info 8) ...there is a good short movie that was posted last week on one of the f/book hotrod sites with some great commentary from Scritch(and Isky plus a few other important figures) and of course plenty of good cars. I'll try and find it again and see if I can get a link to it.
