Below is the description from the eBay ad for future reference, wanted to capture it before the ad ends:


"This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a prototype vehicle built by the Legend GM Designer William (Bill) Molzon. This is 1 of 1 hand built. Molzon built this mid-engine sports car from 1963 -1968 and had it titled in 1970. The car is showing 958 miles and he put those miles on himself. This hand built car weighs less than 1,200 pounds and it has 200+ hp @ 6500 RPM, with an air cooled Built Corsa 6-cylinder engine backed by a Porsche 911 transmission (dated 1965). I’ve talked to Mr. Molzon several times and he told me it is fast as a Lotus and handles about the same. He called it, "Scary Fast” like a Porsche Carrera GT.

I’m selling this Rare Vintage one of a kind as a Museum Car - Runs and drives nice. Everything works as it should speedo - horn - lights - signals - wiper - etc. This one of a kind car is street legal and deserves to be in a Museum. Rough measurements on car is 138" Long 38" Tall 62" Wide Due to the rarity of this vehicle, there will be NO TEST DRIVES or RIDES. I am 6' 225 lbs. and I fit inside with the Gullwing door closed – yes, it's a little tight. I have history and documentation for this DREAM CAR that will be included.

I’ve been around cars my entire life and Bill Molzon is one of the most intelligent and nicest people I ever had the opportunity to speak with. Mr. Molzon was featured on an episode of “Dean’s Garage”, which is a show that showcases Legend Car Designers. Take the time and do some research on Bill Molzon he was so far ahead of his time.

Please feel free to call for more info 419-344-5355 and ask for John. This vehicle must be picked up in an enclosed trailer only, NO EXCEPTIONS. CAR HAS CLEAR OHIO TITLE, IN MY NAME.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE RAREST OF RARE - THIS IS A CAR THAT NO ONE ELSE WILL EVER HAVE - ONLY ONE EVER HAND MADE & BUILT BY A LEGEND GM DESIGNER BILL MOLZON - Bill did every last thing himself and I have all details. He did have it on a road course in Southern California.

Bill was a very good friend & co-worker with Larry Shinoda"

Neat car but for $119K I would expect a test drive.

It's being sold as a "museum car" which means you should have no expectation that it is ready or suitable to drive. I really doubt it is licensed, registered and insured for road use either so why let someone go around the block?

I don't let anyone test drive the cars I sell but I'll take them around in it with me at the wheel. Insurance "follows" the car in Arizona so if they crash on a test drive my policy takes the hit.

"This vehicle must be picked up in an enclosed trailer only, NO EXCEPTIONS."
REALLY???
What kind of seller is this guy?
Selling as a museum piece?
And if I do not agree to put it in a museum, will he refuse to sell it to me?
If he feels that strongly about it, why doesn't he give it to a museum himself?
Oh wait, then he couldn't make a huge profit from it!
