1962 Sabra Sport roadster

The only sports car made in Israel, sort of. Between 1961 and 1968 a bit under 400 were made, but the 1st 122 were made by Reliant.

This is one of 33 made in red, and was made in Tamworth England Jan 1962, then sent to a Florida dealer who intended to give it to his daughter.

She didn't like it though, and it was kept in storage for 38 years before being discovered by an enthusiast in 2000, showing just 40 miles. 


I actually ran across a Sabra 4 years ago, and not surprisingly, had no idea what it was http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2013/10/first-time-ive-ever-seen-sabra-one-of.html

  1. I saw one of these new in Los Angeles about 1963, I thought it looked odd, even ugly at the time. Now I know I was right.
