Willow Sports Cars Molds, Tooling, and More for Sale

I was just browsing ebay and found the Willow Sports Cars Molds, Tooling, and More for Sale. I posted some time ago about the Willow Sports Car. Back in the late 1970s Eric Seltzer created this great looking can-am inspired kit car. The car was mid-engine, under 2000 lbs, and powered by a 4cyl ford pinto engine. As far as kit cars go this was a very well engineered car.

In the early 1980s Eric sold the business to S&S race group and from there not much ever happened. Then earlier this year Eric tracked down the molds, tooling, partially completed cars that you see in the photos. At that time he informed me he had plans to put it into production.
