Known History

Similar in concept to a Lotus Six or Seven, this is the one of a kind Hoyt Special. Albert Hoyt built this Special in 1961 and competed in the F-Modified class with the Sports Car Club of America(SCCA) at such tracks as Elkhart Lake, Mid America and the occasional USAF air base in the early sixties. He designed and scratch built the tube frame, then hand fabricated the all aluminum body from an aircraft drop tank(being a fighter pilot, Al had access to such items).

 

The engine, transmission, complete drive train, suspension and brakes were from a donor 1961 Volvo 544. Even the speedometer was used. The donor car was essentially brand new with 250 miles but had been shunted. Al’s son Mike who can be seen in some of the early photos confirmed that the 8100 miles showing now is the actual on the drive train. The differential is a limited slip unit.

 

Among Al’s other exploits were runs with cars at Bonneville and El Mirage. Even at 92 years young he still keeps busy by assisting in the restoration of vintage aircraft.

 

We have spent over 200 hours in our workshop going through the Hoyt Special to assure that it is in turn-key condition for the next owner. All of the systems that typically need work after a long slumber have been reconditioned including but not limited to, brakes, fuel, cooling, tires, etc.

 

This special car should gain one entrance to any top vintage/historical event or venue. It is also street legal and registered in California.
