AMERICA'S 1ST FIBERGLASS GT COUPE OF ORIGINAL DESIGN
MERRILL POWELL & HIS 1955 VICTRESS C2 COUPE
While the first fiberglass sports car coupe came out in American in 1952 via Bill Burke and Mickey Thompson (Allied Swallow), Merrill Powell and Victress launched America's 1st fiberglass coupe of original design in 1955. Here Merrill stands next to one we recently acquired during his visit last week. Merrill designed this car and was co-owner of Victress from 1953 to 1961.
