They couldn't have picked a better car for the occasion, and a nicer colour combo ... '55 Chevy!

Here's one of the 25 different commemorative coins: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vtg-1954-General-Motors-50-Million-Cars-Commemorative-Coin-Token-/301489651436

 That story is still unsubstantiated.

There's a thread on Jalopy Journal about this car. One guy swears he met the guy who had it (and has since died). Sounded like the car was getting a rebody as the original body burned in a fire.. Apparently the car had a lot of gold plated parts.
