Four Engined Streeter – Paul Wirt 1960

Share Button

Pauk Wirt couldn't feel alone when he was driving on the Ohio highways, he had 1280 horses to keep him company, the noise must have been nice ! The Streeter was on board 4 Chevrolet engines (probably V8 Turbo-Fire 283), each with its own Powerglide transmission, automatic transmissions for dragsters.

Paul felt that his Streeter could easily reach the 321 km/h, he also had a plan to run it to Bonneville, but he never did.
Four openings are visible on the top of the car, they each contain a fan, 2 at the front to suck in the air and 2 back to spit it out, to be able to cool them better 4 engines.

Paul was way ahead of his time to create a car at 6 wheels fitted with a bubbletop! That said the look is still quite special with its 2 exhaust manifolds and its very square body.


Founder of mm2 France, oto6, then from Sixmania. The 6 wheels and more have always been a passion for me. It started in 1980 thanks to a certain Christian de Léotard, you know ?
