  • built in USA
Under hood was a midship-mounted small-block Chevy engine wearing early finned Corvette valve covers and three chromed Stromberg 97 carburetors, backed by a Powerglide two-speed transmission.

Roth always regretted covering the engine: The fiberglass hood was raw inside, so it was kept closed, and the chromed and painted engine was never displayed.

Data points Key details of the Orbitron TBD

In The News From around the web



Roth passed away on April 4, 2001, but his use of bright hues, wild bodywork, outrageous monikers and over-the-top promotion has turned his original show cars into rolling art, and most have been snapped up and restored as icons of a highpoint in automotive design and expression.
Beau Boeckmann of Galpin Motors acquired the car shortly after its recovery from Mexico, and plans to completely restore the car to its original condition at Galpin Auto Sports (G.A.S.) with input from Roth experts and employees that were part of the original build.
