Sold for $60,480 at 2021 Bonhams : Quail Lodge.
This Dolphin America Sports Racer was constructed at the El Cajon/San Diego Dolphin Works during December of 1961 and fitted with a 4.7-liter V8 engine and given chassis number 4. Its early history is not known, but around 1975 it appeared at local vintage race events using a nearly-stock 215 Oldsmobile V8 engine and a Citroen transaxle.

Years ago, the car joined the Judge DiLoreto collection and was used in vintage competition at events around the world. In 2003, DiLoreto obtained FIA paperwork and then brought the car to the Goodwood Revival motorsports event in the UK in 2004. Currently, this Dolphin America Sports Racer is powered by a 4.8-liter Chevrolet V8 engine prepared by engine builder Ed Pink, and backed by a durable Hewland FG 5-speed manual transaxle. The 302 cubic-inch overhead valve Chevrolet V8 engine has a mechanical fuel injection system and delivers 300 horsepower at 6,400 RPM. There is an independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes.
