This Kellison is one of just a few J5’s with a correct period build.

The Kellison Car Company was founded in the mid-1950’s by Jim Kellison who used the medium of fiberglass to create the J5 model. Design elements of the J5 were later used on many Lamborghini and TVR models. This car has a lightweight racing body and is equipped with a dual 4-bbl carbs and rides on a modified Corvette chassis.
