1952 Gregory Sports Roadster news, pictures, and information
After WWII, he turned his attention again to front wheel drive automobiles, although this time for production. He developed a rear engine, front wheel drive coupe in 1947 which never made it to production. The car currently resides in the Lane Motor Museum. He also designed the light military vehicle dubbed the Mighty Mite, which was built by American Motors and used by the U.S. military during the Korean War.
This car was Gregory's last attempt at building a front wheel drive production vehicle. Adopting the sports car craze of the early 1950s, he defied convention by mounting a Porsche engine and transmission at the very front of his custom designed chassis. Though it never made production, he used this car for his personal transportation until his death in 1974, accumulating over 300,000 miles.
