We have an interesting Aldan American customer car to share with you. Charles Adams of Daytona Beach Florida is the proud owner of this beautiful 1958 Scarab. It is a hand built replica of Lance Reventlow’s # 001 left-hand drive car. The hood scoop is patterned after the one on the # 003 Scarab.
Supporting Charles’ Scarab is a set of Aldan Coilover shocks and springs. The original Scarab had a 283 Small Block and a 4speed. Charles has a Small Block 383 stroker engine and a Tremec 6 speed to transfer the estimated 450 horses to the 4.11 gears in the Currie 9” rear axle. All of this goodness makes for a wild hair – raising experience packaged in the 2300 pound Hot Rod.
