1952 Mechanix Illustrated Hobby car

This unique car was built from designs in Mechanix Illustrated in the early fifties. The current owner bought the car with out the chance to inspect. He was told it "probably" had an engine in it. The current owner didnt really care about the engine because he was happy to have such a unique car to add to his collection. He had it shipped directly to us at Manns Restoration. When it arrived we removed the hood and were shocked to find an early Hemi engine in it, the engine was such a tight fit that it would barely fit in the body. We were happy to report to him that the engine was worth what he paid for the whole car.
