1958 Goggomobil TS400 Race Car formerly owned by CBS Evening News Anchor Walter Cronkite.
It was raced by Cronkite at the Little LeMans at Lime Rock Park in 1958 where it placed 23rd. Following the race it was featured in Autosport Magazine's August 1958 Edition.
The 2-cylinder, 2-stroke engine is bored .40 over, ported and polished, advanced timing, rebuilt crank, and custom headers. It runs on C16 race fuel.
In 2014 this car underwent a full rotisserie restoration to the correct specs from when it was owned by Cronkite. It is restored to show quality concours standards.
This Goggomobil has incredible ownership, race, and show provenance. It is the recipient of the Skip Barber Sunday's Best Award at the Historic Festival 33 in 2015. It has been invited to and displayed at the Hilton Head Concours d'Elegance in 2014 and the Pinehurst Concours d'Elegance in 2016.
