presents :


The Shell Oil 1973 Test Car

   376  mpg





There is presently an effort to sell this vehicle as a "roadworthy" vehicle.


KNOW what you are buying...READ the SHELL report...  Inspect this vehicle before purchasing.  It is a TEST VEHICLE ONLY,  and not practical for a daily commute, or a Saturday " Cruise " It was and is an Experimental Vehicle...and the test showed you could get great mileage if you didn't need ANY power for going uphill or stop & go traffic.A great piece of History, and conversation piece.If it had any practical value, we would still own it.

Gas Prices High in your Area ???


... you don't see a car like this for sale in your local car lot...........ever !

This is not a joke !



But don't be mislead into thinking this car could get you to town and back.....

and the technology is hardly applicable to getting miraculous mileage on a

family car.

Do I believe there is a conspiracy of silence concerning decades old and current energy technology? Yes, I have experienced this for more than 25-years

Some folks at Shell Oil Co. wrote "Fuel Economy of the Gasoline Engine" (ISBN 0-470-99132-1); it was published by John Wiley & Sons, New York, in 1977. On page 42 Shell Oil quotes the President of General Motorshe, in 1929, predicted 80 MPG by 1939. Between pages 221 and 223 Shell writes of their achievements: 49.73 MPG around 1939; 149.95 MPG with a 1947 Studebaker in 1949; 244.35 MPG with a 1959 Fiat 600 in 1968; 376.59 MPG with a 1959 Opel in 1973. The Library of Congress (LOC), in September 1990, did not have a copy of this book. It was missing from the files. I bought my copy from Maryland Book Exchange around 1980 after a professor informed me that it was used as an engineering text at the University of West Virginia. VPI published a papaer. March 1979, concerning maximum achievable fuel economy. This paper has several charts illustrating achievable and impossible fuel economy. About 1980 I contacted the author concerning conflicts between the paper and documented achieved "impossible" mpg. The author said, "I will get back to you.". I am still waiting for his response

This car is unmolested and appears complete just as it was during Shell Oil Co's test. The team individual names who developed and prepared the car are painted on the rear deck.

This car was ' forgotten' at the Talledega SuperSpeedway's Motorsports Hall of Fame, and was purchased from the Track when they liquidated some inventory.

Thanks to the internet, we uncovered it's true history...

which you can easily verify by googling

"      1973 Shell Opel 376.59   "









The car came in April. We have put Marvel oil in the cylinders, and it should soak for a few weeks before turning motor.


This car is in very solid and complete condition.  It would make a nice display with very little effort.

It would also be a very good candidate for restoration to " as tested, 1973 "

Either as a static or operating display,  this historical  vehicle  is a secret no more.


Before we perform any restoration ,

 we are considering all APPROPRIATE suggestions or proposals

as this is definitely a one of a kind " attention-getting vehicle with documented history
