I dream of Genie! And look, it has an electric fan! Restored at a cost of over $200,000.00!

How old is this hemming's page?
Didn't we just discuss this same car several months ago?
Did it not sell?
Or is it on the market AGAIN?

Yikes, those guys were really knitted into that drivers compartment. Straddling the tube frame must have been rough to enter or exit. In a crash, the driver would be really stuck if the frame collapsed.

Must have been great fun to drive!

I have a book entitled, "Vintage American Road Racing Cars, 1950-1970" by Harold Pace, on page 82, it states Mk5 was originally raced by Mr. Titus with a motor built by Bill Thomas, rated at 175HP, but with four Rochester carbs and bolted to a 356 Porsche trans.

Looks like it is now a 2.8 liter and induction by tri-port Webers and a 5 speed.

A one of a king thrill ride for sure.
