1964 Chevrolet impala gypsy rose

Third Floor - History

Gypsy Rose first received national attention in 1974, when it was shown cruising Whittier Boulevard in the opening credits of "Chico and the Man," a television sitcom starring the late comedian Freddie Prinze. Although the original Gypsy Rose was severely damaged in an accident, it was so highly regarded among enthusiasts that it was recreated. Like the original, it is adorned with approximately 150 hand-painted roses, and the interior features pink crushed velvet upholstery, chandeliers, and a cocktail bar. In April 2017, Gypsy Rose was inducted into the Historic Vehicle Association's National Historic Vehicle Register (NHVR).
