Sales flier - New Formula "S"

This is a sales flier provided by the Quantum Division. It must have been an early one as the car is only shown as an illustration (rather than a photograph).

 

 

NEW FORMULA "S"

REAL PERFORMANCE . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . LOW COST

This new single seater formula machine is designed to give you really satisfactory performance. It combines SAAB components, noted for the reliability and excellent response to tuning, with a thoroughly engineered, completely triangulated, light weight, extremely rigid chassis.

The suspension geometry is patterned after current Formula 1 practice, using SAAB front A frames. This combined with a light fiberglass body with low frontal area, results in high cornering power and surprisingly low lap times.

SIMPLE ENGINE TUNING

Formula "S" specifications provide for the use of all standard SAAB 750 or 850 engine components, except the latest oil injected GT Block. Metal may be removed from any engine part. This results in effective low cost tuning with excellent results, as much as 65 B.H.P. at 5600 R.P.M. with a single carburetor.

A dynamometer developed 850cc 65 B.H.P. engine will be available from QUANTUM MOTORCAR CORP. on an exchange or outright basis for individuals who may not be that mechanically inclined.

AVAILABILITY

A used SAAB 96 in reasonable condition will provide you with the necessary parts, except an extra A frame set and pivots. New parts are available through your local SAAB dealer, or, contact

QUANTUM MOTORCAR CORP
1000 Derby Ave., Seymour, Conn.

COST

In no area has performance been subordinated to price, within the limitations inherent in using quantity produced components. The choice of the SAAB power unit has resulted in a most satisfactory compromise of low price, performance, reliablity and availability.

The performance and appearance per dollar invested in Formula "S" exceeds what is offered by anyone in road racing today.

Formula "S" Kit - $1097.00, Seymour, Conn.

SAAB 65 B.H.P. Engine, Exchange $380.00, Seymour, Conn.
