Unbuilt LaDawri Conquest on eBay
One of the first — and one of the most beautiful — classic kit cars is the LaDawri Conquest, released way back in 1956. The red completed car below is nabbed off Fiberglass Sports Cars, a wonderful resource on kit cars of this era including the LaDawri. This example is one of the very last bodies made by LaDawri, shipped Feb 8, 1965. Since then it’s hung for over forty years in a garage — the doors are still held in place by the original shipping fasteners! It’s located in Oklahoma City, OK, and is on eBay (#190284540396) with an opening bid of $800. Could be a neat opportunity for someone willing to put in the work to restore this car that has a special place in American car history alongside other kits like the Devin.
