Blackbeard

Explorer Kit

R 3,000.00 ZAR


This little gem made its debut in 1958 and fast became known for its radical, futuristic body shape. Although released in the same year as the Flying-V, the Explorer never had the same success and was thus discontinued after 5 years. Only in 1976 did it make  a successful comeback. The Explorer is now regarded as a cult classic.
