It is one of only 18 XP-5 Bocars known to exist. We in fact own four XP-5's such as this, and two of the super rare Bocar Stiletto. Five were said to have been built, but only three have been found. I've included a picture of our only running car (currently) and of the two Stiletto's. The red XP-5 bears serial number 007, and we do race it. Carefully might I add, but we do race it. I personally have had the thing up to 125 MPH, with different gearing, it is well capable of punching in at 160. The two Stilettos, are in unrestored condition. The blue car has been to Nassau in the early sixties, and we do have photographic proof of that. The other is a bit of a mystery, it bears a spot of either black, british racing green, or charcoal grey paint, and it is believed to be the first stiletto ever produced."
"Our Bocar XP-5 has been in the family since 1985. Purchased out of Billings Montanna, and shipped via truck to Denver. The car at the time featured a rather ugly boat windscreen, and a massive tractor muffler on the back. These were the first to go during it's restoration. Though originally white, it got a coat of Curley Racing Red, and went racing in 1987.
This particular car can be traced back to the Bocar factory in Denver Colorado. The evidence is a picture in our archives, that shows Number 7, perched next to a Bocar XP-6 coupe. Serial number seven features the original 283 inch Chevrolet V-8 and Borg-Warner T-10 fourspeed gearbox, along with 5000 original miles. (more than likely, half of which are racing miles.) It is surprisingly reliable, and takes a flogging rather well. But we do race it on the careful side, and try not to break anything.
