Description: Kaiser-Darrin, 1954 (USA) - The first American fiberglass sport car!
Engine: 2.6-litre Six-Cylinder Power: 90 HP
It's as if the car you want to constantly give a kiss, it seems sometimes to have someone on the front of the Kaiser Darrin said. The design is also very special mention. Just as the doors that can slide into the front fenders. Unfortunately, they do not go far enough forward, so getting in and out is not really easy. The coated panel is in the fifties still unusual safety feature. Also, the Kaiser-Darrin (after the Nash) the second American car equipped with seat belts. Kaiser Darrin signed by designer Howard "Dutch" Darrin, who works for the American carmaker Kaiser-Frazer. He is very excited about the design and production possibilities offered by the new fiberglass and then concludes with this material to build a sports car on the chassis of a Kaiser-Frazer.
