History

02-1952 Featured in ‘Road & Track’, saying the car uses a 4.5 litre engine with 250hp.
-

Johnny Ysmael. Paid US$ 25.000, car kept in Los Angeles, plate EE 11443.
The car is build according the designs of Johnny Ismael and after the completion of the bodywork the forms were thrown away so away so this car will be ‘the only one of its kind’.
Like more of Johnny Imsael’s cars it’s super-chromed.
The car is light in weight because all body work and interior fittings were moulded and cast in aluminium. 
The car has two more seats in the rear.
