The Victress car came during the time when fibre-glass car bodies such as the Maverick Sportster were in rage, and Doc Boyce-Smith along with his friend Hugh Jorgensen decided to be a part of a new success story. They wanted to give young Americans a cheaper alternative to the Jaguar XK120.
Work on this car began in 1951 with inspiration for his design borrowed from the XK120 and the BMW 328. They were both joined together by Jim Byers who was in the process of building his own concept car called the ‘Meteor’ and wanted to work closely with fibre-glass bodies. After one year the first prototype evolved.
More testing followed with one car even featuring in a Hollywood movie. This caught the attention of the public and a Texas oilman, Joe Mabee. Mabee took the car to Bonneville and raced the modified version of the Victress driving the car at top speed of 326.86 km/hr earning the sobriquet "Victress - World's Fastest Street-Legal Car."
Several variants, including the Victress S-1 Roadster rolled-out until 1961.
