(Revell, 1965) A vintage Revell model kit of the Surfite beach buggy designed by legendary car customizer and visual artist, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth. This particular kit once belonged to Roth himself, and now comes from the personal collection of his son, Darryl Roth. Based on a Mini Cooper chassis, the single-seater surfboard caddy was created by Roth in 1964, and made a brief appearance on screen in the Frankie and Annette beach party classic, Beach Blanket Bingo. The 1/25th scale model kit includes both the Surfite (with obligatory surf board) and a tiki hut beach shack. Many plastic model elements are still attached to the plastic runners as issued, though no warranty of completeness is made. The original instruction manual is included, and the kit is housed in its original box, which has been signed by Ed Roth on the lid in black felt pen and dated "'94". Measuring 6.25"x9.5" and 3.25" tall, the box is in good condition. It exhibits some browning, soiling, and edge wear while the model components appear clean and as-new.
