Barrett-Jackson 2012: Lockheed Lakester Custom Roadster
We had no idea what this type of car is worth given that there's nothing really to compare it with, but there was plenty of interest in the vehicle and bidding quickly rose past the six figure mark, eventually resting at $170,000. With auction fees included, the final selling price was $187,000.

"Lockheed Lakester". All aluminum wingtip tank has been transformed into a 2-person, turbocharged, HEMI 4-cylinder speedster in the style of a vintage salt flat racer. Faithful to its aviation theme, it is a unique hybrid of automotive and aviation components, celebrating man's longtime passion for airplanes and automobiles. The cockpit features gunner seats from a Lockeed Neptune submarine chase. Directional control is achieved by a vintage steering wheel from a 1948 Rockwell Aero Commander, in lieu of a speedo, airspeed is measured by a pitot tube and air speed indicator. This is avery rare wing tip tank from a 50s Lockheed Super Constellation.
