Dave57210 There was a TV special about that car - aired a month or so ago
Featured the owner showing how well it drives, what its performance is like, what it took to restore, the history of the car and the history of his particular car.

So I'll pass on answering it right now - I'd feel like I was cheating.

Joe G Here is a much easier question:

What car is this?

I thought it was another cartoon car until I found this:

The Bearcage Project - Hot Rod Deluxe Magazine

and this:

and this:

Cars: In The Queue - Awaiting Restoration - undiscovered-classics.com

Cool car.

That's it !!!!
But 496CHEVY3100 got it right way back on post #11815...

Acording to the article: "It served as the prototype for the Bill Thomas Cheetah."...But wait...The Cheetah was built from a Corvette frame and running gear.

This is the frame with straight front axle and off set engine from the car pictured in the trivia quiz:

Dave57210 Well then I guess it has to be either the Mercuick Plymsmobile or the Corvalaxie.

boothboy Nothing to do with the Cobra. If no one gets it I cough up the answer this evening. I'll give you a couple more hints.

The designer had ties with Ford for years.

The second generation of this coupe was powered by a GM power plant.

This car started as a roadster.

Frame design was more "Indy" style.

bubba1955 Uh oh...I stand corrected. Even though the the Cobras were shipped to the US without drivetrains the car would be manufactured under the Shelby name. And the Cobras were actually built with a tube space frame kinda like the birdcage frame of the Maseratis...Kinda.

bubba1955 It couldn't be a Cobra. AC-Bristol isn't American.
It isn't mid-engine or have a birdcage frame like the Maserati

harposrepair Is it some type of Shelby Cobra?

boothboy Haw!!! You Guys just don't know the answer! So now you picking on the poor Maserati Brothers!

Maserati didn't build the mystery car. Americans did! It was origionally set up with a FE engine.
