The Apollo was a short-lived American grand tourer brand created by Milt Brown to rival European car manufacturers such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, and Jaguar.
The Apollo GT model was the only one produced, featuring Italian bodywork and American powertrains that offered customers a unique and affordable combination of exotic style and appealing mechanics. The car was designed by Ron Plescia and perfected by Franco Scaglione, with coachwork supplied by Frank Reisner’s Intermeccanica.
This 1963 Apollo 3500 GT, chassis number 1004, is the second example produced and is believed to have been sold new by Phil Hill Buick of Hollywood, California. It has a stylish dark red exterior with luxurious black upholstery and features an aluminum hood, doors, and trunk – a characteristic reserved for the earliest GT models.
