After sitting in a metal building in Indiana for many years, the remains of a 1967 AMT Piranha have been purchased and relocated to Illinois. CRV/Piranha website owner, Nick Whitlow, recently purchased the basket case and it now resides in Springfield, Illinois.
The car was acquired from Jon Clifton of Ft. Wayne, who purchased it many years ago from Detroit automotive historian Michael Kollins. Kollins got the car in pieces, already missing parts and planned to drop the body onto a Lotus Europa chassis. After cutting the fiberglass tub to accommodate the Lotus chassis, work on the car stalled and other projects took over. Eventually the car was sold to Clifton.
It has been determined that the chassis of this car was originally used for the "Man from UNCLE" car and was later converted to a street car by Gene Winfield and returned to Marbon Chemical when the AMT/Marbon agreement was dissolved. The UNCLE car was reconstructed on another chassis and toured the country on the show car circuit until it was sold on the east coast.
UPDATE: This car has now been sold to Keith W. of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. It is currently being stored in Georgia, awaiting a full restoration.
