Car history:
Posted 03/24/2016
Lot #5024 - The original owner, Bob Nordskog, was a well-known boat racer and
an entrepreneur that loved speed. He built a dual purpose show/race car that was
out of this world called Asteroid. This car was delivered to Barris Kustoms in 1963
with 10 miles on the odometer. The body was radically transformed and finished
off with an extreme metallic paint job. Bob Nordskog's boat competition center built
the motor and Nordskog's brother-in-law, Don Ferrara, built the very trick custom
interior. The car won the top award at several major car shows including the 1963
Long Beach Motorama and the 1963 Mickey Thompson Auto Boat Speed Show. It
was just as fierce at the race track as well. Nordskog would drive the car to the
track on street tires, switch it over to track mode with American Racing mags and
uncork the side pipes on the custom multi-piece exhaust system. It ran 12.20 in
the quarter mile at 118mph, which was pretty fast for a street car in 1963. At one
track, it was photographed for the cover of the Jan & Dean single Drag City. Jan &
Dean are pictured taking off the side pipe for track mode. It has only 12,000 actual
miles from new. Bob Nordskog passed away in 1992 and the car sat for several
more years in the possession of the Nordskog family. This vehicle has gone through
a vigorous and extensive no-expense-spared restoration to take it back to exactly
how it looked when legendary George Barris from Barris Kustoms originally made
the vehicle.
