Not an A that's for sure. I believe its a 60's or 70's fiberglass kit car

Looking on the internet they name it as a Glassic, all the way back to the 60's.
Not the big doors.

Glassic. Not what I'd call a Model A. How about a wannabe.

The Glassic had so much horribly wrong detail it was actually hard to see how wrong the overall shape and appearance were...staggeringly awful! I think they were built on an IHC Scout chassis.
The first one I encountered was when I was a teenager and the Glassic was new. I blame that trauma for everything wrong in my life ever...

There is a website devoted to Glassic. See http://glassicannex.org/

And there is some incredible talented people over there who are not unwilling to take on a challenge.






Gotta admit its kind of like winning the war in Iraq. When you've won, what do you really have?

You guys would quit your national club because you don't like a photo that was posted for one day on a web site? That's a little touchy, is it not?
