Cars: Vox-Mobile


The Vox guitar was very popular in 1967. The company hired the maker of the Batmobile to create a car based on the Vox brand.


"To design the Vox-Mobile, the company enlisted none other than George Barris, designer of the Batmobile and The Munster Koach. Warren Hampton, promotional director of the Vox guitar company, commissioned Barris to conceptualise and build a custom Vox two-seater roadster that would function both as a car and a mobile amplifier; designed to be used quite literally as a rock and rolling promotional piece for the company."
