This 1959 Peerless GT is Ideal for Vintage Racing

And it sounds pretty awesome, too.

It’s always helpful when you’re born into a family of gearheads. That’s the fortunate situation for Paul Cressey. His father, Ron, is both a racing instructor and competitor, competing in a 1959 Corvette in vintage racing. When Paul was a kid, his father bought a second future race car: a 1959 Peerless GT. For those who don’t know, Peerless was a British automaker that lasted just a few short years before it went under.

It still managed to produce the Peerless GT, a sweet-looking if not somewhat heavy coupe. Not everyone is familiar with the car, but when Ron saw one on an open transport years ago, he had to have it. Now it’s his son’s to race.
