That is awesome Johnny! I can't wait to see it in person! I'll have to make a trip down to Eugene to run with the Emerald Empire group :)

Now you just need to find your AC ME3000 Shelby and your collection will be complete!

SCCA Solo rules put it in XP. The Rossions, Nobels, and Moslers are in XP for example. Since Consulier didn't make engines (and wasn't a part of Chrysler), you get bumped out of SSM (engine must match "family" of original equipment). You could write to the SEB and see if they would allow it to be classed in EM as a kit car (due to low production numbers). On the other hand, if there isn't a lot of competition in XP locally, you could talk to the folks running in SSM and see if they'd object to you competing with them. My club would put you in XP, or our catch-all "run what you brung class." Its a great story though .

Too cool. Or, maybe more period correct lingo, "totally rad dude."
I opened this thread expecting it to be, "where should me '89 Corolla be classed now that I have 17" rims, aftermarket seat and replaced steering wheel...type question. Imagine my joy to find a Consulier.

This seems like a Classic Motorsport article for "future collectables".

Fantastic story, fantastic car, please reconsider painting it, try restoring the original paint, that car is a time machine now, they are only original once.

I would try to restore the original paint, but the factory already did start the prep to repaint it, a little body filler and primer kind of messed it up.

I don't see why SSM is not a choice as my class.

The 2.2 was the original equipment.

Ok... Cliff notes version:

The car isn't eligible for SSM because it's not eligible for Street Prepared.

Since Consulier didn't make engines (and wasn't a part of Chrysler), you get bumped out of SSM (engine must match "family" of original equipment).... Consulier didn't make engines, they used a "Chrysler" power plant, and Consulier wasn't part of "Chrysler". The "family" refers to manufacturer. (SSM allows any GM engine in any GM car, any Honda/Acura engine in any Honda/Acura car, any Ford Engine in any Ford/Lincoln car, any Mopar engine in any Mopar car, etc) Based on the rules, its classed as a kit car (XP). Your local region may let you compete in SSM though - ask them.

Yep. Mostly full-on race cars, although at the local level Cobra replicas are fairly common.

Just was told "SSP" is my class. Sports car over 2.0L not otherwise classified.

Reiterating what was said earlier, your car is not SSP or SM eligible. This is on p.89 of the 2014 rulebook:

"Cars not specifically listed in Street, Street Touring, or Street Prepared Category classes in Appendix A must have been produced in quantities of at least 1000 in a 12 month period to be eligible for Street Prepared Category."
