My 1969 Zeitler FV

My car is chassis number 6. It was a kit-built versus a factory built car. Kits were sold to buyers who wanted the basic car and they built the rest themselves. This car had a very active racing history. Although I did not received any Logbooks with the car, I was able to trace all of the previous owners. All of the owners emailed or talked to me and told me the history of the car while they had it. It was raced at Sebring, Daytona, Marlboro and Summit Point as well as many other  tracks.

Here is the list of previous owners. You will see some very famous names here.
