14. Fitch Phoenix
John Fitch was an American race driver and friend of Carroll Shelby. As a talented engineer, he envisioned a lightweight sports car with his name on the hood, so he contacted Chevrolet for support. At first, GM was interested, so Fitch decided to use the Corvair as a base for his conversion.
He gave the car a special Targa-style body with a low profile, good aerodynamics, and interesting fender design. The new Finch Phoenix was well-received by the motoring press and car enthusiasts, but GM decided to step out of the project so they only produced one Phoenix.
