Suede and Chrome Extra: Vivant For Sale

Just ran across a little bit of American Automotive history up for sale on eBay this afternoon. The Vivant, built by Herb Adams was a show car in the late 1960's and was featured in Hot Rod Magazine in '68. The car traded hands several times, and like many show cars from that period, eventually went "off the radar", only to be discovered somewhere years later.


I've done a little Internet surfing this afternoon and found some interesting things about the car, including a recent interview with the car's builder, along with pictures of the car in it's glory days.
