    Theses cars were sold under the El MAROCCO name. They were basically 1957 Chevys that were restyled to look like El Dorados of the same year. Only about 25 were made
     
  2. I was aware El Morocco's were '57's but the photo is of a restyled 56. Were 56's also called El Morocco's?

    Yes @Bleach , apparently 2 56's & 12 57's were built. I believe 1 sold at Barret Jackson for 2.5 mill.

    I don't think I've ever seen one in person. I don't remember the 56s, but the 57s were styled after the 57 Cadillac Eldorado Broughams. [​IMG]

    Bob Tattersall was crowd favourite in my town of Brisbane
    I was a young fellow and we knew the Speedway photographer who would each year arrange for me to have my
    photo taken in Bob's car. at about 12 year old it was such a thrill.when I get a chance I will post some of those photos.
    the Offy midget were always sold to an Aussie driver
