Banana Boat: 1968 Sterling Kit Car

The shape you see on the screen first appeared as the Nova kit car, produced in the UK by Richard Oakes and Phil Sayers using a swoopy fiberglass body, and Volkswagen Beetle chassis with buyer provided running gear.  The same design was later branded as the Sterling, Cimbria and Purvis, and apparently you can even buy a new one today.  That sounds expensive, so I’ll stick to the old used examples like this 1968 Sterling Kit Car offered for $8,500 in Mendocino County, CA via craigslist.  Tip from James.
