A note about the company who built this car:
“Custom Craft” was a thriving company specializing in building cars for those who wanted “personalized cars” in Detroit, Michigan. Many clients had Custom Cadillacs built by Custom Craft purportedly including Richard M. Nixon, Steve McQueen, Tom Jones, several English Rock Groups (including “The Who”), Smokey Robinson, Liberace, and the King of Saudi Arabia (to name only a few!). The Custom Craft Company was owned by Heinz Prechter, Who founded ASC (American Sunroof Corporation)- who is well know for creating the Sunroof Market for Vehicles in the United States. By 1967, Prechter relocated his company, now known as ASC Inc., to Southgate, Michigan and began expanding beyond sunroofs to custom-tailored vinyl tops, building prototypes and other customized vehicles. At its peak, ASC grew to employ more than 5,300 at 60 sites across the U.S., Canada, Germany and South Korea. Prechter was inducted posthumously into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 2004, where he had been previously honored as their Industry Leader of the Year in 1990 and given a Distinguished Service Citation Award in 1996. Finally, he was elected to the German American Hall of Fame in 2014.
