The Akins & Hardcastle unique Kellison GT bodied car (fashioned off the Astin-Martin). The fiberglass bodies were built in Sacramento in the 50's and early 60's. In 1963 the car ran as an AM/SP and often ran against fuel dragsters but in 1965 they jumped into the funny car craze renaming the car "The Stinger" seen here in 1966 at Irwindale.
