For example, the tail fins were taken from the rear fenders of a 1946 Dodge
, the boat tail rear end came from the hood of a 1936 Ford, and the seven foot long hood was donated by a 1936 Chrysler
. Even the grille was a transplant, coming from another 1946 Dodge and the headlights from a 1946 Studebaker. Upon completion, Mr. Templeton displayed the car at the 1951 Minneapolis Motorama, where it won a trophy for the "Best All Around Car." He displayed the car again the following year after doing even more work to it and, once again, took home the same trophy. It was later displayed in California at the National Car Show in Los Angeles.
