Year: 1964 Style: Open Spyder
Color: Polished Alloy Engine: 255 CID, Alloy Olds, V8, 350 bhp
Price: SOLD Chassis#: #002

History:

A very unique and special racing prototype, this car is one of only two built by the famous Marvin Webster of the Webster Gear Company in Mill Valley, CA. It was intended to be raced by the late Tony Settember in the USRRC Series in 1965, but CanAm prevailed with its unlimited rules, and this car was never raced in period. The body was hand-formed by Jack Hagemann and the entire car weighs only 1250 lbs. It is a very competitive car in many vintage events and has been in it's current owners possession since 1983. It has been raced in numerous important US vintage car events and never damaged.

Condition:

Excellent overall condition. Car was restored from the ground up in 1985, and maintained in mint condition since. The special Olds engine is a bored and stroked 215 CID and was completely rebuilt by Ron Shaver in 2001 using Moldex crank, Carillo rods and new pistons and has not been used since. Car has 4 downdraft Webers, dry sump, alloy heads, ZF 5-speed gearbox and Eisert-designed suspension. Upswept exhaust and alloy body make this a very unique race car. Comes complete with spares package.
