The Golden Sahara II A Kustom Relic is Discovered

After its sudden, unexplained disappearance nearly 50 years ago, the Golden Sahara II will finally emerge from the garage of its original owner to cross the block at Dana Mecum’s 31st Original Spring Classic. From years spent as one of America’s most famous custom cars—touring prolifically around the country and drawing massive crowds and hordes of media everywhere it went—to a sudden disappearance into the garage of its owner, never to be seen again, the Golden Sahara has long been a lost darling among car enthusiasts.

Immortalized in the film “Cinderfella” starring Jerry Lewis and celebrated as one of the most innovative, futuristic and generally awe-inspiring vehicles of the late ‘50s and through the 1960s, the Golden Sahara was a celebrity of mass scale.

The car’s revolutionary electronic control system—which allowed it to be steered and operated in myriad ways, including by remote control—effectively categorized the car as autonomous and earned it the designation as the most expensive car of its time.

As it graces the stage of Dana Mecum’s 31st Original Spring Classic this May as a headlining no-reserve auction offering, one fortunate and ambitious collector will win the opportunity to carry on its unparalleled legacy. Click the link for more information:
