Lot 233 - 1970 Bunkbeds
|Estimate||£12,000 - £15,000|
|Result||Sold - £10,175|
Built by Bob Reisner in 1970, this is a truly astonishing design. Fitted with a 600bhp, V8 engine together with automatic transmission, disc brakes all round and super-wide Goodyear tyres, this 'vehicle' has to be every boy's dream bed!! With steering available (in theory) from both the lower and upper bunks, the mechanics of this are largely ornamental although mostly complete. Recently refurbished, the condition these 'bunkbeds' are in can only be described as excellent. George Barris, the legendary custom car builder, has endorsed this 'business class transport unit' by signing the wooden radiator cowling at the front. Whilst not built by George Barris himself, it is a Reisner car, a designer of note and very much in the same 'school' as George Barris. Unquestionably, this unique construction is one he would have been proud of and indeed brings a whole new meaning to luxury driving. Show me a Rolls-Royce with a duvet!
