Built in 2010, this roadster was designed by Chris Ito and
hand-fabricated by Steve's Auto Restorations. This custom was
created as a prototype for a project known as the "Double Dozen."
Initial plans called for a dozen fully fendered and a dozen
fenderless examples to be available by commission. Plans changed,
however, and only one steel-bodied prototype was produced. This is
that car. Power comes from a supercharged 4.6-liter V8 engine that
is routed through an automatic transmission. A Mustang Cobra
independent rear suspension is paired with handmade upper and lower
control arms that feature a cantilevered coilover arrangement. It
also won recognition for its interior, engineering, undercarriage
and overall display at the 2011 Grand National Roadster Show. From
the Petersen Museum collection.
