One car went to David Letterman as a gift from CBS on his 1st Anniversary with the network and a several went to Leland Wolf of Investment Toys. Dick Fitzek, a well known California hot rodder / builder, wound up with the remaining castings and parts. He also recently passed and only built a couple of these cars over the last 10 years. We feel very fortunate to secure the remaining 7 castings and parts from the estate. The body and belly pan are 356 aluminum heavy duty castings. The wheels and hubs are machined from 7075 aluminum billet stock, and polished or painted in wire spoke or disc wheels. The 4 finned aluminum finned brake drums are 6061 billet stock and hand finished. The radiator shell (nose) is 304 polished stainless steel. The exhaust and axles are chromed brass. Many paint colors available for base coat clear coat custom paint and graphics. The cars are not powered but are high quality display pieces that weigh about 6 pounds.
