This Mysterion was built circa 1955 by an unidentified, yet competent designer/constructor. It is one of only three cars known with this body. It comes from the early postwar period when having your own sports car often meant building it yourself.
Early American sports cars bear names that few recognize such as Meteor, Glaspar or Victress, while this car is called 'Mysterion' because it belongs to a group where research has yet to turn up the designer, builder or company responsible for it. The car seen here was built on a 1940s Ford frame with dropped front axle. it features a Ford Flathead V8 with Offenhauser speed equipment including aluminum high compression heads. This Mysterion has a removable hardtop, vintage wire wheels and unique style combining European and American elements.
