Ed Roth's "Surfite" show car on a press release photo found on Ebay

The text across the top says:

One of the popular exhibits at Rod & Custom car show here is this one seater Surfite, a surfboard-carrying vehicle dreamed up by comedian Ed Roth. Car can top 50 mph with its Austin Sidewinder engine of 4 cylinders, according to Roth, who claims it gets 50 mpg. Deep groove formed into right side is where surfboard fits snugly in place.
