When Apollo was sold to Vanguard Industries, an aftermarket supplier of auto air conditioners in Dallas, Texas. Vanguard sold the Apollo as the Vetta Ventura and built only 11 cars. This car appears to be one of those 11.
Some work will be required because it has sat outside in the humidity of Louisiana for a few years. The good news is you can choose your own colors for both the exterior and interior! Or, you may decide this car is better used as a parts car because of the rust – buyers choice.
The Apollo project was the dream of Americans Milt Brown and Newt Davis, who wanted to build an American car to compete with Aston Martin and Ferrari. They did not intend to compete on the racetrack but as a street sports GT car.
