Dream Car of Faroe 1955
1955 Dream Car of Faroe — This Dream Car, with gullwing doors, was home built by Almar Nordhaug, a Norwegian expat who lived in Tórshavn on the Faroe Islands. The futuristic build was based on a Vauxhall Cresta chassis, engine and drivetrain. The body was handmade, and the roof was taken from an airplane. In 1957, Nordhaug returned to Norway, bringing his car with him.
