1 - The Topper
1938 Buick Model 60 Century Custom Bohman Schwartz Topper Roadster

In 1939 the studio sold the Topper Car to the Gilmore Oil Company. Re-sprayed in the Gilmore colors of cream and red, the Buick was fitted with a power system and a public address system for use in their promotion of “Red Lion” gasoline. A hitch was fitted to tow a trailer with a live lion cub as part of the promotion.

Now known as the Gilmore Oil Car the Buick was modified to accommodate the car’s new potential uses. A new full chrome radiator grille of horizontal bars stretched down to the bumper. The change in appearance was more in keeping with 1940 styles and provided a fresh look for west coast motoring shows, events and processions such as the Hollywood Boulevard Christmas parade.
