American Specials Buyer’s Guide: Sports Specials, Sports Customs and More

Hi Gang…

We’ve been working up a new tool for current enthusiasts and newcomers to Undiscovered Classics – a tool where you can learn more about these handcrafted cars via a single page.  And this new tool is ready as of today.  Introducing our first…

American Specials Buyers Guide”  

As you’ve seen most recently at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, handcrafted American sports cars are being restored and appearing at events with greater frequency.  As we speak, several sports specials owned by new and veteran Undiscovered Classics enthusiasts are due to be completed this year and start the concours, racing and show car circuit.  It may be that 2020 is finally the breakout year for this category of handcrafted American sports cars.  And the breakout is beyond the cars that our team at Undiscovered Classics is restoring ourselves.

  1. I think we met at Amelia Island. I have the what is believed to be the only extant Kellison J-5 roadster. It is an active race car, although 2020 events are now on hold. If you do not have info on it I would gladly supply a history & photos. It is 1 of the 2 cars built by Jim Kellison to compete at the Salt Flats. Original chassis by Chuck Manning.
