MANDY'S MERC : Forgotten Barris Kustom
Photos from Dick "Fuzzy" Fuerholze & Rik Hoving www.rikhovingkustoms.com
Mandy Holder was from Springfield , Illinois, he himself was a painter, stripper,he did the painting on the famous "Truly Rare " Buick of Gene Howard. The car was first started by himself and a guy by the name of Ernie Bell in Springfield, then he came to Barris's where Barris designed it and finished it off.
Somewhere from local shows back in 1958. Mandy died young and the car was stolden sometime after he died I believe. Its never been seen since, and believe me we looked for it. Ernie Bell is the only one living yet of his close friends, he has had thoughts on it, but that's it.
