The Ostentatienne Opera Sedan was offered at a F.O.B. price of $19,600 (1967), had a weight of 5,740 lb (2,600 kg), and sat on a 119 in (3.02 m) wheelbase. Prices have also been quoted at $25,600.  Tires for the vehicle were nitrogen filled 7.50”x20” (USA). The Ostentatienne was powered by an International Harvester truck engine. Entry into the car was from the rear; solid steel side rails (designed to protect passengers during a crash) prevented doors along the vehicles sides. The Ostentatienne could be ordered customized to suit its buyer’s wishes; Ming styled oriental rugs, refrigerators and sealed beam taillights were some of the options available. Production is estimated at three to four vehicles per year.
The Opera Sedan after sitting in storage for almost 20 years, was brought back to life in 2009. Bruce Mohs personal Opera Sedan was restored to its original condition by two Wisconsin High Schools. Freedom High School Automotive Program and the Freedom Auto Club (Freedom, WI). and Shawano High School automotive program known as "Hot Rod High" (Shawano, WI)  A personal friend of Mr. Mohs, Fred Beyer coordinated the restoration and displayed it at the 2009 Iola Car Show in Iola, WI.

Retired teacher Fred Beyer and Mike Carnahan along with the "Hot Rod High Students performed all of the dis-assembly, mechanical repairs, detailing, and re-assembly. Paint and materials were supplied by PPG and 3M. Mechanical parts by various suppliers. The Opera Sedan was featured in the August 09' issue of Hot Rod Magazine, February 2010 issue of Kustoms and Hot Rods, and both Freedom and Shawano High School annual Car Shows.
