The motor on this car is a 265 Chevy V8 and we have a lot of great paperwork that comes with this car, as well as original letters signed by Les A. Dawes. The LaDawri Conquest was designed and built by Les A. Dawes of British Columbia, Canada and is recognized as Canada's first fiberglass sports car. The Conquest was first shown at the Pacific International Exhibition at Vancouver Canada in 1956 as the Cavalier. Original plans were to create a complete sports car for sale and distribution throughout the United States and Canada. The body itself is fiberglass and was designed to take a wheelbase of 100 to 104 inches and a tread of 56 to 58 inches. This covered Corvettes, Thunderbirds, and the like of the day. However, within a year, the car, family, and company moved to Long Beach California where production began and the car debuted on the front cover of Road and Track in July 1957. From this point forward, the car was known as the Conquest. Soon, Dawes expanded both the number of designs available and the sizes of each design as well. New models included Q.T. Quest, Daytona, Sebring, and Del Mar. Around 1960, Dawes again expanded the lineup of available designs by acquiring a competing car company called Victress, and the models in its inventory. These cars became known as the Cheetah, Vixen, Castilian, Sicilian, and Cavalier. Two additional models of cars were added later which included the Centurion 21 and the Firestar - both acquired from former competitors. This series of acquisitions made LaDawri the largest fiberglass car manufacturer (both kit and complete cars) in the early to mid 1960s based on the variety of models offered and produced. The last car designed and built for production was the Formula Libre around 1965. LaDawri continued with car production producing both cars and kits from 1957 through 1965 when operations ceased.Call Alex Neues at 303-656-6534or email with any questions. Credit Application Directions to Dealer Contact Us Options and Standard Features Basic Information Stock Number: 1805 VIN Number: 0RE8822F Make: Ladarwi Model: Conquest Model Year: 1962 Interior Color: Red/Black Exterior Color: Silver Body Type: Coupe Engine Fuel Type: Gasoline DriveTrain Transmission: Automatic Drive Train Type: RWD  Apply Now Secure Credit Application Applying for a vehicle loan online is one of the quickest and easiest application methods.
