Old Yeller Race car
You are viewing a very professionally built race car that is also street legal. Home built by a professional who died shortly after it was finished with only 107 miles. Very high quality parts used in the build. The car was built about 2000. Currently owned for 10 years. It is thought that the owner built the car as a modern version of Old Yeller. The car is titled as a 1955 Austin Healey likely do to a donor car for the windshield, which is an original 100-4 Windshield frame. The car is in running and driving condition. Very cool and interesting car done well.
