"It is nothing more then an H-Mod from 1955, I owned it back in 1990. Interesting thing about the car was the magnesium floor pan. It has a magnesium floor pan and Borrani wires. IT WAS AN H-MOD. When I got the car, out of Florida it came with a Crosley motor on a pallet, some of them were run with Mercury out boards, A fellow named Howard Banasek owned it before me. The photo was taken in 1990 in front of the outside lunch eating area for FAF the Ferrari dealership in Atlanta. I was renting some storage space across the street from them. It was part of a 4 car trade to Robert Pass, Passport Transportation on a 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Volante, I gave this car, an Alfa GTV, a 1934 Singer Le Mans, and 1959 AC Ace roadster, for the Aston DB-6 convertible
The H-Mod, (ferret) I believe went to Glen Sipe in Tennessee with out ever going to Robert Pass.
Its just an old H-Mod, there is nothing mysterious about it, H-Mods were built all over the place for very little money and were made from what ever people could find to put them together from."
