Dunham Coach Motor Car Company

Les Dunham, born in 1941, started in 1957 to customize cars.

In 1973, he put the body of a Cadillac Eldorado on a chassis of a Chevrolet Corvette,
the Corvorado (Corvette + Eldorado) was born...

The Corvorado was used in James Bond "Live And Let Die".

Thanks to A. Beyer, I can show some photos of a model, which is part of a series with James Bond modelcars.

It is mass-produced, so it is quite cheap, but showing a good quality.

Here's a pic of the Corvorado with James Bond:

In total, Dunham built seven Corvorados.

In 1977, Les Dunham started another project, based (again) on a Corvette,
the Caballista.


This Caballista, photographed by Arne Bayer, is located in Germany.

The neo-classic design was successful, 50 cars were built, until 1982.

Out of these 50 Caballistas, only 5 were convertibles.

In 2005, Les Dunham is back on the market for extraordinary custom-cars,
another, modified Caballista was presented.

But Les Dunham is still in the business for custom-cars,
in 2004, he created some Dunham-wheels for a 1971 Stutz Blackhawk,
he also created the spare-wheel-cover.
