Type 3 Kit Car: 1974 DRB Sabre Mk II

How often is it that you find a car for sale and you don’t know what it is? Not that you aren’t familiar with the make/marque, that happens often enough with ultra low volume oddballs, but when you can’t even find out what you are looking at after a google search..well…that is something worth writing about.  Find this 1974 DRB Sabre Mk II here on eBay bidding for $20,000 with a few hours to go, located in Haven, VIC, Australia. 

According to a few snippets of info I could piece together from forum posts, the Sabre Mk II was sold as a kit from DRB SportsCars out in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia back in the mid/late 80s.  Production of the Sabre MkII was limited to something around 100-200 units and cost $11,000 for just the body when “new.”  Styling could best be described as a little bit Ferrari Dino, a little bit Ford GT40.

The seller includes limited information on this car, which is unfortunate because it isn’t something you can simply find in a quick interweb search.  It is powered by an undisclosed combination of Porsche and WRX running gear, but with any luck it could be brutally fast and fun.
