Scorpion to 037
USA <2000, UK, 2003
This car is based on a Scorpion body, the builder stated that he started off with a Scorpion that was used in Disney's "Herbie goes to Montecarlo", serial number is not known. The car does have a tube frame. It was built a bit shorter for personal preference. 1.8L engine with serious hot rodding (said 300hp), 914 gearbox, 12" discs with 4 pot callipers all around, "Vortran" 16" rims, Koni coil-overs. Mix & match Corvette & T-bird suspension parts. Lots of potential, but still needed suspension sorting when it was on show in Atlanta in 2000. Note: The engine could be a Fiat 2 litre from the 124, turbo and fuel injection.
In 2003 the car was imported in the UK and will be on the road again.
