|Locke de Brettville's "Mystery Car" -- 327 Chevy Special (1)
Locke de Brettville, Secretary of NorCal historic racing group CSRG, is looking for info on this Chevy 327 powered Special.
|From Locke: "An oddity has come my way & I was wondering if you know what it is.
It's RH drive, aluminum body (not a Devin fiberglass) & has a 327
& T10 & Houdaille shocks. Forget the wheels because I assume
they are an add-on—they’re Cromadoras from a Bizzarini. It’s a nice TIG
welded chassis & looks like the real deal."|
|7-1-18 From Chuck Brandt: |
" I think it might be a Tojeiro – Jaguar".
7-1-18 From Joel Driskill:
"Not the same, but similar."
|"The engine & gearbox date codes are 1964 & the gauges are from
a TR4. Jag rear end, Ford brakes (four wheel discs, but that might be
an update). The front leaf spring might also be an update—if you could
call a leaf spring an “update”.|
|"I’ve gone through the usual, Hagemann, Cal Metal, Troutman &
Barnes, Santee Lorrell, etc., etc. in the American & British books
without luck." If you can help Locke ID this car: Please
