Subaru 360 Fastrack II- 1980

Subaru 360 Fastrack II- 1980

Hardware store tycoon and automotive entrepreneur Malcolm Bricklin had grand plans of importing a large number of Subaru 360s to the U.S. Although he was successful at importing about 6,000 cars, he was not able to sell many of them and had lots full of new cars sitting around. Malcolm’s next idea was to build a racetrack and charge people $1.00 a lap to race the new cars into the tire barrier, thus damaging them. Malcolm then hired Bruce Meyers, who designed and built the legendary Meyers Manx Dune Buggy, to design a plastic body for the Subaru that would be difficult to damage. The result was the Fastrack II seen before you. This is the only Fastrack II that is street legal. Most of the Fastrack II vehicles were destroyed during the $1.00 per lap process. This car belonged to Ed Parsil for 15 years before he generously agreed to sell it to the Museum.
