Available for auction is a set of five Monocoque Racing wheels. These iconic wheels were manufactured in 1958 by Chassis Engineering of National City, California. According to the seller, this set was recently sent to Bogart Racing Wheels in Phoenix, Arizona, for restoration, as Bogart now owns the Monocoque brand and has been producing them since the late 1960s.
This set is configured for a Porsche 356 drum brake wheel or a VW of the same vintage. It is a tubeless 15-inch rim with a six-inch bead. Each rim weighs under 9 lbs - 4 oz. and the wheel halves are bead welded together, bolted, and sealed.
The seller is including spacers for wheel fitment, a set of 10 standard-length Porsche wheel studs, and 9 extended-length wheel studs. Directions for fitment also accompany the auction, which includes company documents and notes by the original owner from 1958.
Due to their strength and lightness, Monocoques have been used with success by notable racers such as Bruce “King Carrera” Jennings. Jennings has been called the winningest driver in SCCA history, and some of his wins were achieved using Monocoque wheels on his 356 Carrera Speedster and later, a 1968 SWB 911. Don't miss your opportunity to own a beautifully restored set of Monocoque Racing wheels. The buyer is responsible for shipping, handling, and fees.
