This USA Racing Car was found several years ago by its current owner. At the time, it was unclear who had created the body. Some believed it was from Devin while others suggested it was a Byers body. It has a custom tubular frame, running gear from a Volvo 444, and an engine and transmission also from Volvo.  The owner believes that the body is a Byers mold but was probably made by Victress, who had purchased the molds from Jim Byers but kept the Byers name.
