1994 Gazelle SSK Kit Car
Chassis no. WA78119636
The Gazelle kit car was offered by Classic Motor Carriages of Hallandale, Florida, to fit on either a Ford Pinto or Volkswagen chassis. It was designed to resemble a 1929 Mercedes-Benz SSK but its proportions and performance leave much to the imagination.

This car was licensed in 1994 in Washington State, reportedly built by a retired bodyman. It's based on a Ford Pinto, with a 2-liter OHC engine and a 4-speed manual transmission. The body is fiberglass, finished in gray with brown fenders. The paint is good and the brown vinyl upholstery and tan vinyl top are in good condition.

The car is equipped with "wire basket" chrome wheels, and the wire covers are in an accompanying basket, since they can be self-detaching. The drivetrain was rebuilt when the car was assembled 1,200 miles ago. This is an ideal summer car for Palm Springs, or the Oregon coast, where it will not rust.
