1960 DiDia 150: The Bobby Darin ‘Dream Car’


This exotic luxury car was built by Bobby Darin’s friend, Andrew Di Dia, a Detroit clothing designer.


It took seven years to build (1953-1960) at a cost of $93,647. in 1957, Darin told Di Dia he would buy the car if he ever “hit it big.” He did and bought the car for $150,000 (1.5 million today) in 1961.


The car is powered by a 427 high-performance Ford engine with a 125-inch wheelbase. It’s metallic red paint was made with 30 coats of ground diamonds for sparkle.


Darin donated the car to the St Louis Museum of Transportation in 1970 where it remains. – wiki
