2019 Baja 1000


Looking down the list of cars in Glickenhaus's garage, one stands out like a sore thumb among the custom-designed ex-race Ferraris: the 1967 Baja Boot. Built to compete in what became the Baja 1000 desert race, and later owned and raced by Steve McQueen, the Baja Boot is a snub-noised tank of a jeep on steroids, running massive desert racing tires and a monstrous 450-horsepower V8 in the back.

Glickenhaus picked it up in an auction at Pebble Beach back in 2010, and is now setting out to build an updated Boot for the modern era.


The Boot is Back!
