Sportcar Chevrolet Corvette
Samples have been distributed everywhere. Even in the USSR, many mills built cars that significantly exceed the level of performance and design of any serial model, and what about the U.S. motor Power. Richard Bosley was one of the outstanding " modelers " .
Bosley lived in the city of Mentor, Ohio, and loved cars very much. But he couldn't buy a real car of his dreams, the sports cars were extremely expensive, and the design of Bosley's models on the market was totally unsatisfactory. So, without any experience in car construction, he decided to make the car himself in the early 1950s.
In five years, he built the car. The body designed itself and ordered it to be made of glassplastics. Used a powerful 6-cylindrical engine Chrysler Hemi. He borrowed the elements of the Rome frame from 1948 and the brake system from Lincoln. He made the whole interior, using the details from the different cars, the elements, including the landfills.
The sports car produced 250 km/h and had a huge 200-litre (!) benzobac, allowing it to move to very large distances without refuelling. In fact, these two qualities were the " unrecognized " , one of the factors that forced Bosley to build its car.
Richard Bosley was a simple farmer and couldn't start serial production of Mk1. In 1952, when he started building a car, he was only 19 years old and 22 years after work. He subsequently exchanged his sports car for a great Chevrolet Corvette SR-2, the one that couldn't afford. Bosley Mk1 has been in many hands, has been reconstructed and stored today in Los Angeles, at Petersen Automotive Museum Motor Museum.
