Presenting 'Ole Yeller

A one-time opportunity to own the personal car of the
builder of the Glassics!

 $24,900
 

 



'Ole Yeller has been owned by Joel since it was born in 1981.
It was assigned  VIN # 9999 by this website
since it was not a production vehicle and it
 had an ordinary DMV number rather than a Glassic VIN.
 

Joel built it for his own use when the company closed,
equipping it with many upgraded and special-purchase parts.

 

No expense was spared to make it exactly the way he wanted it --
something that he could not do on the production cars that had to be sold for profit.

Here are some features of  'Ole Yeller that you won't find on other Glassics.

 

n Original and only owner ever of this car
n All wheel disk brakes
n Upgraded suspension
n '32 Ford grille
n Improved suspension, front and rear
n Under 7000 original miles (but started regularly)
n Upgraded spoke rims
n New tires
n New top and side curtains.

 

Information on ‘Ole Yeller

Provide by the owner.
 

Ole Yeller is the last and final vehicle that was assembled in the Replicar’s facility in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Replicars, Inc., had folded its tent and was out of business, but there was potential for additional opportunity: The Kit Car business. The final vehicle ('Ole Yeller) was assembled using a temporary drive train, and transported to the Columbus, Ohio Street Rod Drive-In to try to generate kit sales.

(Bad thinking because no sales resulted.  The Economy was terrible and much of what seemed to be selling were cheap cowboy hats and perfumed wooden roses.) Note: A friend from Palm Beach purchased a “T Bucket” super Hot Rod. We transported the “T Bucket” back to West Palm Beach on our trailer and the “T Bucket” owner’s wife drove ‘Ole Yeller from Ohio back to West Palm Beach.

The drive train was removed and replaced with a factory-fresh, zero-mile 302 engine and a new C-4 transmission. Since then, ‘Ole Yeller has been in storage or garaged (for the past 30 years), and only driven to maintain the running gear and on “special occasions” - usually with the grandchildren aboard. Total miles on the car: 6,500.

Note: This vehicle is titled in Florida as a “Kit Car.” (Replicars was out of business and could not supply a Manufacturers Statement of Origin (MSO), so we had to do the next best thing to get it titled, and the “Kit Car” category was available.)

Paint: ‘Ole Yeller would need to be re-painted to be a show car, but for day-to-day use, it looks fine.  Up close, in the sun, or under the lights, it could be freshened up. The body is a one-color and it wouldn’t be hard to change the color. That would be up to you to decide.
 

Ole Yeller is a “driver” and can be driven at legal road speeds anywhere you want without worrying if you’re going to get there and back. So come on down and take a drive, make your deal, then take ‘Ole Yeller to its new home.
