Up in the Air (UPDATE III: not a Vespa but an Autobianchi?)

Vspa 400 1960Even when they not drivable anymore, small cars can start a new career. This little Vespa even made it big in advertising. Click the main photo and you’ll know how and why! It was photographed by Martin Jubb by the roadside on highway 70, N Carolina. As far as we can tell the Vespa (named after Roman emperor Vespasianus) is a model 400 dating from 1960, but what has us worried are the “air ducts” on the rear panel. Were they a later addition? Maybe someone from the American Vespa Club can tell us? And by the way, Martin is in hospital now, so we wish him a swift recovery!

Made for fast towing

glasspar-and-boat-hugh-1You might have spotted this advert of a Glasspar boat from Hugh Nutting. Glasspar was America’s first major producer of fiberglass bodies and they didn’t stick to boats, they made some nice car bodies too. Take for example this G-2 that is also owned by Hugh. It’s the John Steers Glasspar-Ford that was first raced in 1956 in the Pacific Division SCCA. It won the novice class (CM) at Stockton CA beating several 120 Jaguars. It is one of a very few G2s with a true early racing history and is a real barn find - untouched minus the engine since being built in 1955. Hugh always thought it may have had a racing past do to the construction and a recently located YouTube movie proved this to be true. Quite a rare car as only about 10 G-2’s of the 200 built had racing history. We suggest you keep the boat, Hugh, the combination of the two will get you to the water in a jiffy!

Stuttgart's Muscle Saloon

300_SEL_6.3Spotted between Stuttgart and Franfurt this very well maintained fresh "6.3 litre". Most will overlook the understated long legged distance killer. Insiders will spot the "6.3" from far as the same engine as used in the stateman's 600 but now used in the much lighter 300SEL, basically the same car as a 280 SE. Primarily meant for the V8 hungry US market the guzzler saloon has become Merc's proverbial wolf in sheeps clothing. For those who still find the 300 SEL 6.3  a bit modest, the next model gave even better numbers...:  450SEL 6.9 litre.
