1964 Porsche Platypus

Hans Adam, a BMW service Manager, built the Porsche-powered car, commonly known as the Porsche-Platypus or the Hans Adam Platypus. He would later build the PAM Project Group 7 car.

The Platypus had a fiberglass body resting on top of a chrome-moly space-frame chassis. Power was from a four-cam Porsche engine mounted in the rear. Later, it would receive an Oldsmobile V8 engine. Modifications to the car continued throughout much of its racing career.

Adams was a partner in PAM Automotive and later worked with the Jim Garner race team as the manager.
