This Dragonhas spent most of its life in the dry American southwest and is from theRobert Pond collection who personally purchased the car from Barrett Jackson in 1999.

Initially set up by car people, KaiserFrazer was soon taken over by Henry J. Kaiser's West Coast construction boffins, who wrecked it. They had a hundred new ideas a day, of which three on average were good. Fortunately for history, one of their good ideas was to hire Carleton Spencer, and his idea was to bring new patterns and colors to the automobile interior. The Dragon was his masterwork.

Spencer reported to the bustling KaiserFrazer complex at Willow Run, Michigan, 20 miles from Detroit, after he was discharged from the Army in autumn 1946. His prewar backgroundincluded blueprint drawing at Fisher Body and color coordinating at the Ditzler Paint Division of Pittsburgh Plate Glass.Spencer's talent was crucial to KaiserFrazer. "We didn't have a bunch of different engines, or a whole lot of the things they have today to make cars different, like 27 different models," he said in 1972. "We had only one basic body.... Color and trim was where we had to achieve a difference."

Where others at KaiserFrazer may have seen just another car in the redesigned 1951 Kaisers, Carleton Spencer saw a highfashion model worthy of being dressed to the nines in wonderful colors and intriguing new texture

Included with original Kaiser owners manual, original Kaiser quick guide, service policy andHydraMatic guide
