Bowler Wildcat

Hey Gang,

What is the closest thing I can get to a Bowler Wildcat here in the States?...Can the Bowler be brought in in pieces?...

Thanks
Mike

With enough money, anything is possible. Tomcat may be closest and easiest to produce - it uses a regular frame as a starting point.

There was a Bowler for sale on eBay about six months ago. I don't think it sold, you could look it up.

I'd think it would easily fall into the kit car category since it's not a production vehicle. Read up on the rules - the question of "home built" D110's has been hashed around on this forum repeatedly but since the Bowler isn't a production vehicle (in the eyes of the law) it may be eligible. The use of a late model Chevy motor might cause some complications as far as emissions requirements (check your local state laws concerning registering home builts). I wouldn't think building a Bowler would be any different than buidling one of the '32 Ford hot rod kits.
