Corvette Poster, 1958 Lister 327

In February of 1958 Brian Lister debuted his Lister-Jaguar prototype which later became known as the Knobbly. It used a custom frame and unique shaped body, the Lister was purpose built sports car. The aluminum body was made by Williams & Pritchard. A distinct feature of the Knobbly was it's low frontal area which required a huge hump to clear the engine. With protruding fenders, the car became distinctly known as the Knobbly.The first two cars were shipped to Briggs Cunningham with Jaguar engines and in the American racing scheme of white with blue stripes. Both cars failed to finish, but would continue on with the team until 1960. Later, Lister offered a variant of the Knobbly that could fit the small block Chevrolet as used in the Corvette. Although purposeful, the Knobbly was unsteady at high speeds which caused Brian Lister to go back to drawing boards with Frank Costin to design a much more aerdynamically efficient body. By 1959 all Listers used the new Costin design and the Knobbly was out.
