Sportscar
Chassis #: 006
This car is one of thirty-plus XP-1 through XP6s built by Bob Carnes in Denver over a two-year period. There appears to be only eight or nine running today. The car weighs 1,890 pounds and started life as a 283-FI Chevy V8 with around 365 horsepower. This engine was changed out for a Chevy 350 with the same Rochester FI unit, which develops 418 horsepower. The XP-5 was raced by Art Huttinger in the first televised Daytona race in January of 1960, where it placed second to the D-Type Jaguar of Ed Rahal. It won an SCCA race on the same track in March of 1960, and followed that by setting a speed record of 175 mph on the beach of Daytona. Following many top-five finishes all the way North to Watkins Glen, the car spent many years under the ownership of William Butler, taking a top three at the Bahamas Speed Week and winning the Concours there as well. The car is roadworthy and a beast to drive, just as Bob Carnes envisioned 47 years ago.
