Garage-Find 1967 Astra X-300 GT Coupe

Fiberglass made it possible for anyone to be their own Pininfarina. With a minimum of tools and space, nearly anyone could create sweeping shapes and fit them to an existing or custom chassis for the ultimate custom car. Jim Kellison came home from the Korean War with the dream of building his own fiberglass car, resulting in the Kellison GT, first appearing in 1957. Kellison's dramatic, low-slung bodywork appeared on everything from Bonneville speed racers to dragsters, with the earlier cars using a proprietary chassis. Complete cars started at a high $7,600 in 1960, with the kit coming in at just $365. Kellison would go on to make Manx Meyers dune buggy copy, a GT40 clone, an XK-E knockoff, and one of the first Cobra replicas. This 1967 Astra X300 GT is one of 40 kits sold that year and has recently emerged from garage storage as a stalled project. The car currently has a 289 and four-speed manual, with the bodywork appearing mostly intact and relatively undamaged — ready for someone to restore it to its former glory.
