The Fantastic Bocar XP-5

Here's a vintage automobile ad from the Denver area. The Bocar was a corvette-powered car manufactured in Lakewood, Colorado from 1957 - 1961. The car could be purchased as complete unit or in a variety of unfinished stages. The XP-5 was the fifth iteration of Bob Carnes design. Made from a conglomeration of parts, including Chevy, VW, and Jaguar, the Bocar would have stood up next to modern super cars for performance.
