Back in the fifties it was not easy to afford an Italian sports car, it was indeed much easier to buy a fiberglass body shaped like the european GT’s and merge it to an american chassis and engine.
These kits were produced in North Hollywood, CA, by Jerry Sutton who sold the C-2 in two options: the base kit at $375 and the standard one at $625. These were very cool cars when complete, like the photo shows.
This particular car looks like an uncomplete project (since new) which misses a lot of parts: we believe that the most difficult items to find are the glasses all around: the website Forgotten Fiberglass provides a lot of useful info about these cars and where to find parts. Find it for sale at here in Chicago, IL, but the asking price is undisclosed.
