1973 Blakely Bantam ("Gorilla")
Last updated Mar 14, 2011
Supposedly only 73 of this model made, both as a kit and a few factory built. An engineer by the name of
Dick Blakely designed and engineered this car as America's answer to the British Lotus Super 7
Originally this vin#00007 was factory built before modifications for racing.
I have owned this car for 36 years.
A gentleman by the name of Philipe Charest of Canada and myself started a Blakely blog a couple of years ago to try to unite the few Blakely owners out there. Please go to http://blakel...blogspot.com/
