In the world of automobile collecting the hobby is basically broken down into two main divides. The collector that likes to collect cars that are ascetically beautiful and the collectors that like to collect vintage cars that go fast. It is very seldom that one car can satisfy both sides of the fence. Generally the vintage ‘go fast’ racing cars usually perform surprising well on the track but are not always that attractive. The cars with the beautiful silhouettes and fabulous sculptured form are generally not ‘go fast’ cars but are great for display at Concours d’Elegance or museums and just the personal pleasure of going out to your garage and looking at your collector car.

The car in this ad has the unusually rare combination of both speed and beauty. It is a beautiful car to look at and is a beastly fast car to drive. It has an excellent racing history and is running a Chevy 283 that has been bored out to 297 with three two barrel Rochester carbs. The car has been fully setup for vintage racing but could also be set up for street use with the necessary modifications. Note at time of listing we did not know the mileage or if the car even has an odometer.
