Although we have had a lot of suggestions it is a Beach design, we believe only the Mk8 Coupes were monocoques. There is however many similarities, and it definitely not a backyard creation
... not a H mod, this is a vintage roadrace SCCA F/Mod later called C Sport Racer class , C/SR , as seen in it's second body configuration shown in the small pictures below. If you have any knowledge of it's early, or later, SED SCCA history in the Florida area, I hope you will pass it along.
This Vintage 2 seat monocoque, mid-engined SCCA racecar appears to have been built to circa 1959 F/Mod specs. Very professional aircraft style construction, it has twin fuel tanks in the sidepods . It is all aluminum, including the rollbar. Up front the VW front beam is fitted with a well laid out rack and pinion steering. Drum brakes front and rear. Early VW splitcase transaxle in mid-engine configuration with 4 link rear and air over oil shocks . Cortina pre-crossflow 120E motor has dual 40 Weber sidedrafts and 'zoomie' exhaust pipes. Cockpit and engine compartment nicely laid out.
It was discovered in a Clearwtaer Florida barn in 2006, where the owner said it had been sitting for 20 years. The current nose and rear body may help in identifying this car during it's 1970's life. The whereabouts of the original nose and rear are unknown...otherwise it is obvious the car appears unmolested from the original construction.
. ......AS FOUND ..........
ANY help identifying this car would surely be appreciated.
