As Ed put it, the Ed Roth Orbitron was “a failure at the shows.”
He believed that covering the shiny ’55 Chevy engine of the Ed Roth Orbitron was to blame for its downfall. Inside features a TV, Cragar steering wheel, Moon gas pedal, Hurst shifter and a Dixco tachometer.
Ed got the idea to use the three primary colored headlights, so when they turned on and focused in one spot they would create a white beam.
The Ed Roth Orbitron went missing for many years, and only recently turned up in Mexico. The original fiberglass, chassis and engine were totally intact.
