Looking for Loring Design Kit Cars

As the title says we are looking forĀ  Loring Design Kit Cars. David Loring was the man behind some REALLY cool looking designs in the 1960s-70s. While Loring Design is not as well know as some of the Car companies that stole his work, he did sell quite a few different kits during his time in operation.

Looking for Loring Design Kit Cars

Unfortunately a fire destroyed his Oregon production facility and a lot of the molds went up in flames. David Loring still has a few body shells, complete but rough cars, and even a set of molds for the Loring Mantis Targa. But he did sell some kits during the time he was operational and we would like to find some of them. Even if they are not for sale we would like to at least find out where they are.

We do know of a Mantis Ageon that we featured here many years ago, and we know Roy Kaylor in California has another Mantis Aegeon (He named it the Invader GT-15) and back in Feb 2017 we came across a Mantis Habua GT on Craigslist. We know there are some more out there.

We have had the pleasure of communicating with David Loring over the years and I am sure he would like to know how many of his great kit cars are still out there. So if you know of any please contact us. If it is for sale please include the price, the location, and any information that would be helpful!
