Irvin Kirschner's 1955 Chevrolet
1955 Chevrolet restyled by Tony Bruskivage for Irvin Kirschner of Westwood, New Jersey. Irv's Chevrolet, known as "the Princess and the Pirate", started life as a convertible. It was restyled several times by Tony, and at the 1964 Hartford Autorama it was shown as a bubbletop show custom. This version was extended 9 feet. A plastic bubble top enclosed the entire 4 place cockpit. Radical seats and custom interior and trunk were done at Auto Interior Decorators. When the car was shown at the 14th annual Hartford Autorama in 1964 it featured a red paint job and red tires. By then the car had won about 150 awards in 26 shows. Tony Bruskivage also built a 1/4 inch model of the car for Terry's daughter.
