Porsche Crest 1954 Pre A Porsche Microplas Mistral

The car now has a complete brushed aluminum 3M professionally installed wrap on it. New wiring harness is now done.. Car comes with engine and low mileage 741 1962 B transmission believed to be 42,000 miles. Original to the car Pre A gauges were completely rebuilt by Palo Alto Speedometer. It has only been driven 100+ miles. We are taking the car on trips to 8,000 ft she runs awesome. The transmission came out of Chucks 356 outlaw. This Fiberglass aluminum race car was acquired by the late John Muller. The history goes like this. The car was made from a 1954 Porsche Coupe it was built in Germany and then sent to New York City in 1957 it was later shipped to Kansas City and raced in local events. Then for 50 years it was left untouched. John Purchased it about four years ago. It was sent to Redline service in Tucson Arizona where it was to be his next race car. The perfectly straight and rust free undercarriage was completely stripped cleaned and the brakes, steering box original cleaned resealed. The car was purchased from the estate of John Muller by the current owner located in San Francisco Bay area. Engine is a 912 with 1750 cylinders with a pair of super heads and Italian Webers. The exhaust system is a ceramic coated Bursch. This engine is out of Chuck's outlaw and has 2,000 miles of testing and driving. Runs Perfect.
The UK Origins of the MistralIn 1954 a group of 750 Motor Club members in the UK got together and designed an all enveloping body for their Austin Sevens that would be made from the new material fibreglass. Microplas Ltd was founded in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire in the early 1950’s by a group of 750 Motor Club enthusiasts who got together to design and produce an all-enveloping glass fibre bodyshell for the Austin Seven chassis.They were, Mike Eyre, Roger Everett, Bill Ashton, Sandy Wemyss and his brother Tony, The new shell was called Stiletto which had a wheelbase of 6`9"New designs came thick and fast and by April 1955 Microplas announced what was to become their most popular shell, the Mistral. The price of 58 was to remain unchanged throughout production. Car is currently in auction at Bring a Trailer.
