One of the stunning beauties that showed up was the 1954 Kaiser Darrin DKF-161…it’s one of only 435!! It’s fiberglass!!!…and the doors slide open into the front side panel!!!…

From the NY Times Wheels Dream Cruise article…..
..”We encountered an equally unexpected pairing down the street, where the Daughters of the American Revolution were showing off a 1954 Kaiser Darrin DKF-161, one of only 435 built.
Finished in its original Pine Tint paint, the fiberglass sports car belonged to the Michigan residents Doug and Christine Richman. Ms. Richman, whose ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War, is a D.A.R. officer, and her organization created the display to welcome veterans to the Dream Cruise.” …
This is the FAB LINK…from The NY Times Wheels article!!! http://www.danjedlicka.com/classic_cars/kaiser_darrin.html
The Kaiser Darrin was designed by Howard “Dutch” Darrin, and I thought built at the Kaiser factory/plant in Ypsilanti, Mi??.. This great article says in was built after Kaiser moved their factory to Toledo, Ohio?
