1964 Ed Roth’s “Surfite”

Surfite was a genuine surfer’s car. An Austin Mini Cooper chassis was under its unique custom surfboard carrier body, powered by a 1269cc Austin Mini Cooper chrome-plated engine. Ed tried to get Surfite in a movie that he heard was being filmed in Sportsman’s Cove in Malibu, and even though it was only a split second, Surfite made a brief appearance in Beach Blanket Bingo.
