Yankee Clipper (Strassberger Motor Company)
Yankee Clipper was an American automobile brand that was built between 1953 and 1954 by the Strassberger Motor Company in Menlo Park, California .
The only model Yankee Clipper was based on the contemporary Ford Crestline , whose chassis had been shortened to 2565 mm wheelbase.
A glass fiberglass body was put over it , creating a roadster with two doors and two seats. The result looked quite similar to the Woodill . In the engine compartment,it had the Ford V8 engine with 3917 cc capacity with an output of 130 bhp (96 kW). The engine power was transmitted via a manual three-speed gearbox (on request: Fordomatic automatic transmission) to the rear wheels. The 860 kg car cost $3,400.
