1952 Glasspar G2
The Glasspar was born in 1949 when Major Ken Brooks showed California fiberglass boat builder Bill Tritt the hot rod he was building. It was a stripped-down Willys with a modified V-8. Tritt convinced Brooks to clothe the car in fiberglass. The G2, according to records, was the first production fiberglass-bodied car. An example is in the Smithsonian Institution. The first model was shown at the Philadelphia Plastic Show in 1952 and appeared in many newspapers and national magazines.

The wheelbase is 101 inches with the engine set back for better weight distribution. Cars were first fitted with Willys flathead 6 or Ford flathead V-8s. This car runs the later Ford Y-block V-8, with tri-carburetors coupled to a 1940s Ford truck three-speed transmission, all mounted on an early 1940s Ford frame.

This G2 was a finisher of the 2008 Colorado Grand.
