Not BOMONSTER's Kellison

While selling my art at the Detroit Autorama earlier this year I came across this stunning 1962 Kellison J5 on display. Michigan owner Jim Hart told me he bought the car from a Beverly Hills, CA pawn shop for an "obscene amount of money" nearly 20 years ago and raced it in a few vintage road races until a recent compete restoration. The body is actually a one-off Kellison "drop nose" concept developed between the J5 and J6 model which has the quad lights of the J5 and oval grill opening of the later X-300GT. I guess you never know what you can find in a Beverly Hills pawn shop.
