Alfa Romeo C43 F1 Show Car

$ 29,900

Custom designed body, the only Crusader with this body.


Crusader Cars driver, Jerry Demele, enjoyed several early victories with the prototype car. Based on those results, crusader Cars constructed 7 additional sports racers and sold them to drivers across the United States. Unfortunately, the SCCA did not want another sports racer class, and disapproved the development of the VRS class. Of the original cars produced, 4 are still in existence. One was raced in Mexico and totaled. One was burned in a fire at Chuck Tatum's shop and rebuilt. Three are known to be vintage racing; one is in Texas and two are in Oregon.
