Crazy mileage: 1962 Invader GT


This car is a time capsule from the time when people had a wide choice among not only mass produced cars, but also among a galaxy of small producers of fiberglass cars, mostly based on the VW Beetle platform.


This car in particular is a true time capsule: the seller says that the owner bought it and drove it for only 6 miles (six!), then he parked it as he fell ill and he never drove it again for the next 45 years. So, the car came to us just like it came out of the factory.


The car has of course the original VW engine and the red shag carpet interior (that was a must for the custom cars built in California by guys like Ed Roth) as well as the plexi headlights covers (almost impossible to find on these cars) and plexy gullwing doors which are removable to drive with the sea wind in the face. Last but not least, the wheels too are original. Find it for sale at $6,900 here in Lakewood, CA.
