Glasspar G2 1951 Cream by Autocult
Glasspar lays claim to being the first production fibreglass bodied sportscar, with manufacturing starting in 1951. The project originally began in 1949 as a one-off hot-rod, the Brookes Boxer, on a modified Willys sedan (not Jeep as often stated) chassis. Later bodies were mounted on a variety of chassis with many owners buying just a body and assembling it themselves, so details such as bumpers also vary. The basic proportions of the car look good here and the body is without the optional bonnet scoop. The windscreen is very finely done in etch and the rich cream paint colour suits the car very well indeed.

A relatively new maker of very well finished resincast models, established in 2015. Very imaginative choice of subjects, often concentrating on the more eccentric episodes in motoring history! Production limited to 333 pieces of each subject, which often means that we get one delivery and that is it, so pre-orders strongly recommended!! Made in China for Germany.
