Description
Lot #1327 - Built in 1960 by the late Don Tognotti, the "Avenger" is one of the most revered and significant period hot rods in existence. One of Tognotti's later efforts, "King T", won the coveted America's most beautiful roadster (AMBR) award for 1964 at that year's Oakland "Grand national Roadster Show" Mr. Tognotti was elected to the Oakland Roadster show Hall of Fame in Jan. 1965. An early example of "wedge channeling," this sleek Tognotti coupe was chopped 3.5 inches and the roof was filled. It was then dropped 10 inches in front and 8 inches in rear, over a 4" stretched 1932 frame. This coupe's competition flavor stemmed from its "suicide" front end, tubular dropped front axle, the Chrysler Hemi power plant, a beefy 1938 Imperial transmission and Halibrand Magnesium wheels with Bruce slicks. This altered wheelbase 5-window won its class at Oakland in Feb.1961. That same month, Car Craft magazine named the car one of its "Ten Best in the Country". The following year, was featured in a special July 1962 Car Craft article "Those Swingin' Coupes/Sedans". The coupe won seven major awards and countless others in its first two years of competition. Most recently, the car was sympathetically restored using Tognotti's own, scrap book and spec sheets, (including Tongotti's memorabilia, correspondence, pictures and publications from the gold age of Hot Rodding will be includeed with the car). The car was one of a select few picked for a display at the Pebble Beach Concours in 2001.
