1955 Kaiser Darrin

Unfortunately, Kaiser stops the production of its Kaiser Darrin convertible after all of its operations are concentrated in Willys’ Toledo factory. Still, some leftover cars are sold during the 1955 model year, while remaining leftover bodies and parts are purchased by the car’s designer Howard “Dutch” Darrin, who has decided to continue to sell the car in limited numbers.
