About lot #22
The GDT Speedster was designed and built by a team of automotive professionals who love cars and wanted to develop a complete vehicle from scratch. The project was considered to be an exercise in engineering and styling using a "no holds barred" approach. GDT stands for Gene Dickinson Team. Gene led the design, fabrication and finance for the GDT Speedster project. The car features a custom fabricated chassis that is nearly 50% stiffer than a Corvette, aggressive styling, a steeply raked windscreen and "clam shell" front and rear body panels. It has a full leather interior with custom dash and gauges, custom exhaust system, and one of a kind Fiske forged alloy wheels produced for this car. It took 6 years and 13,000 man hours to complete. There was a book written that documents the build titled "GDT Speedster, from Dream to Reality" that is still available. A Chevrolet 5.7L V-8 supplies the power to a 4-speed automatic transmission. There is plenty of stopping power thanks to the 4-wheel disc brakes. The custom Fiske wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires. This is a one of one car. Included in the sale is the original clay scale model used in development of this vehicle. Original sales price on this car was over $350,000.
