Lot #1236 - "Lockheed Lakester". All aluminum wingtip tank has been transformed into a 2-person, turbocharged, HEMI 4-cylinder speedster in the style of a vintage salt flat racer. Faithful to its aviation theme, it is a unique hybrid of automotive and aviation components, celebrating man's longtime passion for airplanes and automobiles. The cockpit features gunner seats from a Lockeed Neptune submarine chase. Directional control is achieved by a vintage steering wheel from a 1948 Rockwell Aero Commander, in lieu of a speedo, airspeed is measured by a pitot tube and air speed indicator. This is avery rare wing tip tank from a 50s Lockheed Super Constellation.
