Al Hoyt built this car in 1961. He made a space frame out of One Inch square tubing and built an Aluminum Body attached to the frame. He used a B-16 Volvo engine and transmission, front and rear suspension and the limited slip rear end from a 1961 Volvo. This street-legal car was raced back in the day at airport circuits, Mid-Ohio and Elkhart Lake road racing circuits in F Modified. After that it did a few years on the autocross circuits. This is a very fun car to drive around, and it attracts more interest than any car I've owned. Even though the engine is stock, the car is so light that it is quite peppy. This last September I trailered the car to Elkhart Lake for their Vintage Fall Festival, where the featured marque was Volvo. It wasn't raced on the track because of no roll bar or fire system, plus the vintage lap belts in the car, but was parked in the Volvo field, where it generated a lot of interest. This is a superb, vintage one-off car that is very unique and is currently licensed and ready for the road. Note: The first photo and the last three photos were taken when I first bought the car. It is now cleaner than when those photos were taken.
Raced from 1961 to about 1968 at airport circuits in the Midwest plus Mid Ohio and Elkhart Lake road race circuits in F Modified. Then raced on autocross circuits for a few years.
