A MOST UNUSUAL OPPORTUNITY

 

This is one of many of my cars, that since turning 71,

 my family has been encouraging me to sell 

 

Dave Ridenour was a So Cal roadracer during the early 60's, and was the owner / driver of a Huffaker Genie with Olds V8 then Ford V8.

 

Dave had the foresight to recognize the coming of the  aero Coupes in Group7 ( ala Porsche 917, McClarenGT, etc), and during the 65/66 Winter he rebodied his Mk8 Genie/Ford with this beautiful custom coupe body, the only one of it's kind.

Unfortunately,  Dave was killed in a race accident in July 1966

 

His wife sold the car, and it was owned and raced on the West Coast,  until  eventually the coupe body was removed, and an open body installed.

 

The body has been in our shop for many years, awaiting a new chassis.  It is in very good condition, and in primer ready for completion.

The  Genie/Ford  logo on the hood was hand painted,

 and carefully retained during refinishing

The car was originally orange, then repainted dark blue by a subsequent owner

 

Windshield is an easily sourced 63-67 Corvette

the rear screen was plexiglass.

 

Copies of numerous papers and early pictures, including the wife's advertisement of it for sale, are included, as well as various amounts of pictures, etc,  regarding Genie chassis

 

With the 289 Ford V8, I have been told by one of the owners,

that the car was run at Bonnevile in excess of 200 mph.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is one of many of my cars, that since turning 71, my family has been encouraging me to sell

Peugeot 908 RC concept

Tue, 15 Aug 2006 00:00:00 -0700

Following the 907 coupe concept shown in Paris two years ago comes the stylistically similar sedan concept, the 908 RC. Despite a three-box profile, the 5.5-liter V12 diesel engine is located behind passengers, putting out 700PS. Transversely mounted with a wide V angle, the engine still allows space for four occupants, with a trunk accessed via a motorised opening.
