This particularly handsome Apollo, chassis #1074, is among the very few original examples extant today. Showing just 4,000 documented original miles, finished in the correct factory color, and displaying nearly all the original interior, original drivetrain, and Borrani wire wheels, the car was also formerly owned by Apollo founder Milt Brown. In addition to being a factory original low-mile car, it is also believed to be the only Apollo painted this color, and the second to last Apollo constructed before the company concluded production.
After delivery to the first owner, the car remained largely unused, stored indoors, preserved by the dry Southern California climate, for 35 years. Though in need of mechanical refreshing, the condition and originality were worthy of recommissioning and thoughtful detailing to a high level. In 2009, the car was repainted the correct factory color, retaining the original door jamb paint and other areas still finished in the factory original green color. By 2004, Milt Brown purchased #1074, finding it to be in superb condition, enough to confidently generate a letter to the next owner in 2004 confirming the originality of the car, the finishes, interior, and various features. In 2006, the car was consigned to Fantasy Junction, with just 1,300 miles indicated on the odometer, as documented by Milt Brown under his ownership. Today, showing 4,008 original miles currently indicated on the odometer the car is very much in keeping with the condition described by Milt Brown in his letter verifying the authenticity of this example.
Today, this highly desirable 5000GT presents a visually captivating factory original appearance of high quality and excellent detailing. Still retaining glossy paint, the finish overall shows some signs of age in the panel line edges and a few minor chips typical to modest road use, but these aspects only add credence to the very presentable 40-year-old finish. The exterior trim, lenses, and original glass are all excellent including a nicely formed grille and yellow enameled Apollo emblem mounted at the front of the car. Other original touches include Carello "Made in Italy" wiper arms and Carrozzeria IM side script, boasting the Italian connection. The sporting nature of the car is accented by beautifully finished Borrani wire wheels and triple ear knockoffs.
This is an exceptional opportunity to acquire a wonderful example of a stunning preservation grade Apollo delivered in unique colors. Second to the last of the 76 cars built, this authentic Apollo, verified by and formerly owned by the founder Milt Brown, offers wonderfully settled cosmetic and beautiful mechanical details preserved by careful custodians of this unique American brand sports car. This Apollo 5000GT is ready to offer the next fortunate owner a chance to exhibit a one-of-a-kind example, driving, showing, and further educating appreciative enthusiasts about one of America's most daring and dynamic sports cars of the 20th century; the Apollo 5000GT.
