1959 Troy Roadster This is a rare opportunity to own a vintage handbuilt sports car!! Wally Troy was the first official Jaguar dealer in the state of Illinois.
And he was a gifted craftsman with a big dream.
The dream was to build a street legal race car and he achieved this in 1959 with the remarkable Troy Roadster pictured here.
This car is a true one-off, the only car ever built.
A fantastic design featuring a carefully handcrafted aluminum body.
The car resembles clearly the European open wheel racers of the 50â€™s with almost no overhang on the front or back.
The drive train is Chevrolet.
It carries a tubular frame and belly pan which spells out racing right there.
This extremely handsome car has been featured in the 1960 Hot Rod Magazine (article included in photos) and also was also shown in a period Comic book (also shown).
The current owner searched for this car for many years and was finally able to purchase in 1975.
The car was stored for almost 20 years before a full restoration was started.
The car has been meticulously restored and has since been shown at the 2004 Amelia Island Concourse as well as the Detroit Autorama and the Milwaukee Masterpieces.
The car is stunning in appearance and extremely fast.
The craftmanship is amazing.
A true piece of American history and a wonderful addition to any serious collection of sports cars.
A street legal open wheel racer!! Perfect car for the Colorado Grand or Copperstate 1000!! The car is in the US.
Worldwide shipping gladly arranged.
