What's not being said is that the top of the tank was the floor of the trunk. The car that caused all the commotion was a Pinto and a young family burnt up in a rear end collision.

Yep, tragic event, but not the only instance of that happening. Probably not to that severity, but like Brian said millions of small size Ford unibody cars had the same tank design. I was appalled the first time I realized the tank was the trunk floor...

Some of you will know this right off, some won't believe it. What is this car and who was it built for?

As far as I'm concerned, 99 was eligible for 69.

Knee jerk sez DB7. But just as likely a Ferrari of some sort. I got nothing, did a brief search. And was suspicious about the awful Mustangy looking roof. Hmm. No clue.

When the day comes that IDJ qualifies as a red sports car spotter... Thats the day you'll know something is horribly wrong in the world.

No not a Aston Martin. The coach builder did do many bodies for Ferrari but this isn't one of them. Funny you mentioned "Mustangy"

Got a Red MG sitting outside.

Maybe but when this car was designed 240Z's hadn't been thought of let alone conceived. This car was designed and built in 1959 and is one of three. It is a design study for production.

I figured this Q was spawned by a recent movie release but was led astray by that assumption.

Its a 1959 Corvette chassis which was covertly bodied by Scagliatti for a Mr Laughlin who was a GT racer with big friends and a broken crankshaft. One thing led to another in pursuit of a roomy American V8 powered GT car. Only one of three chassis was completed over three years and fit/finish fell short of expectations. Chevy was interested enough to turn loose of the three partially assembly-lined Corvette chassis for the secret project but in the end it was just too controversial, having an Italian body. The project was scrapped and Carrol Shelby passed up the chance to buy one of them. So that is a stillborn concept car with an Italian body over an early Corvette. Freakish.

Show 'em the grille, BB. If I am having chicken dinner tonight, I think I have the germ for another good 'un.
