Another barn mystery car!

Anyone know what this is? I don’t recognize it… It looks like one of the many early variants on VW-based GT-40 and other racecar-for-the-streetĀ kits, with quite a few other influences thrown in as well. Anyway, if you recognize it, post a comment please!

  1. This car bears a striking resemblance to the old mini based Unipower GT (see link http://www.minimarcos.org.uk/altpics/unipower/index.html), but it appears to have steel wheels on it from a VW bug. Some of the body details are off too. Interesting. I’m stumped.

    Just happened to be browsing. Nice job on the new blog format! -John

    A manic GT it is not, note the door shape and the lack of a curve at front top of the door glass, and the rear quarter panel is entirely wrong to be a manic GT as well as more less noticeable differences. Similar: yes, Manic: no

    I have 2 Manics…it’s not a Manic. Good luck with your search. I once had a 1962 Sabra, from Haifa, Isreal, one of 206 built. It was before the internet, but I figured it out!
