Morris Minor V8? Yessir! Custom Racecar By 6 Proton Engineering of Jacksonville

This car was a real head-scratcher for me — and I think everyone, everywhere — who sees it in the flesh.

Wheels from a Camaro, a steering boss from the 325i, seats from a racing boat?

What the heck is this gurgling, V8-powered bubble-car?

Is is the bespoke work of 6 Proton Engineering, a custom fabrication shop in Northern Florida. Why?

Why not! For custom fabricators like 6 Proton: anything is possible.

What better way to showcase that fact than a Morris Minor V8 racer.

Special thanks to chief engineer Tripp Ferrer for letting me mug for a few photos in the driver’s/only seat of this curious creation.
