Glaspar

We have questions about fiberglass cars before the Corvette? Let's clear this one up. Yes there were way more than 300 Glaspar G2's built before 1953 according to the man in charge so the Corvette did not catch up for a while after that. Yes, they were what we would consider "kit-cars" but they were available built up and the "Post frame", that's Shorty Post not Wiley Post, was a Glaspar item not just a Woody Woodill innovation. There was competition history too, west coast races and believe it or not, the Mexican Road Race in 1953. Various degrees of low-key involvement, yes, but they were right there so all you Glaspar owners can feel you have one up one the C-Type Jag guys on the Carrera, your car is real.
