One-off early 1960s Canadian built sports racer. Originally built and raced by Vince Murray. This is the 4 cylinder sister car to the Polivka 6 cylinder Outboard Special. Car was completed in 1965
One of the most unique, neatest, oddest and distinctive tiny vintage racers ever built.
A 600lb sports racer, powered by a Mercury 650 65 Panther two-stroke engine with centrifugal clutch and sequential shift via a Triumph 3 speed motorcycle gearbox.
The original body was destroyed and in the early 70s a replacement was created, the molds for this replacement body come with the car. When we started to restore the car to its current condition we elected to not use the molds from the replacement body but to rather fit a period correct body as is shown in the current pictures. The molds are no longer available. Note the period correct body closely resembles Lotus 23 or Elva Mk VIII, the body is three piece with removable nose and tail sections. After extensive research we are 90+% certain that the body fitted to the chassis is a La Boa.
Car now has a new and proper fuel cell as required by almost every vintage racing organization. The original engine is with the car and has been freshened in preparation to be re installed, the car also comes with a spare that has not been opened but has great compression.
The pictures do not clearly show but we have also manufactured two new stainless side pods to complete the body, the original were destroyed and had not been replaced until we started working on the car.
Chassis, electrics, plumbing, upholstery, front suspension are finished. Two complete sets of brand new wheels, one set mounted with brand new never raced Dunlop Racing Tires.
Car is listed for sale locally as well as other locations and auction will end upon receipt of acceptable offer.
