Spotted on eBay, what a cool ride for an even cooler $180 thou!

IN THE MID FIFTIES, DICK WILLIAMS WAS A YOUNG ENGINEERING STUDENT AND DREAMED OF BUILDING HIS OWN CAR. HE DID SO IN 1958, AND SHOWED THE CAR AT THE FAMOUS KANSAS CITY AUTORAMA IN 1959. THE CAR FEATURED A SLEEK CUSTOM FIBERGLASS BODY CREATED BY DICK AND A FRIEND FROM A KIT THEY BOUGHT IN CALIFORNIA. THE FRAME WAS A DONOR FORD FRAME AND DRUM BRAKES AND SUSPENSION THAT DICK FOUND. THE MOTOR WAS A 283 CORVETTE MOTOR FOR RACING. THE INTERIOR WAS CLASSIC FIFTIES WHITE ROLL AND PLEATS. THE CAR WAS RACED THROUGHOUT THE MIDWEST AND THEN PUT AWAY FOR 40 YEARS UNTIL DISCOVERED LIVING IN A FLORIDA GARAGE. RESCUED AND RESTORED TO VINTAGE RACE CONDITION. THE CAR HAS BEEN LOVED AT THE MONTEREY MOTORSPORTS REUNION SINCE IT'S 2012 DEBUT. IT HAS BEEN FEATURED ON SPEED TV, IN MAGAZINES, WEBSITES, ETC. IT RACES, RALLYS AND IS STREET LICENSED! TRULY, ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE AMERICAN SPECIALS THAT DRAWS A CROWD WHEREVER IT GOES. IT WILL HOLD IT'S OWN WITH THE FERRARIS, MASERATIS AND OLE YELLERS OF THE 50'S. THE WILLIAMS FORVETTE SPECIAL WILL BE LOVED AND WELCOMED AT AUTO EVENTS WORLDWIDE. I FIND AND RESTORE FAMOUS OLD PIECES OF AUTOMOTIVE ART, AND I HAVE TWO OTHER PROJECTS TO DO , SO I OFFER THIS AMAZING ONE OF ONE CAR FOR SALE. THE CAR CAN BE SEEN IN TUCSON, ARIZONA AT REDLINE SERVICE. Offered with no warranties expressed or implied.

Pretty neat history behind the car. Too rich for my blood, though.
