This is the actual Coyote X from the hit TV Series "Hardcastle & McCormick". It was built as a stunt car and used in seasons 2 and 3. Stunts included a major jump where the car was driven by an actual stunt driver through the air with a hard landing that bent all 4 wheels. Human driven jump cars are rare because most of the major jump scenes are un-manned cars that are launched by a catapult.
Since this car was used for jumping, it has a custom tubular chassis that was balanced so the back end would hit first. There is a rear skid plate to protect the body from damage. To soften the jumps, the car is eqipeed with 4 front shocks and 6 rear shocks. The body was fabricated in pieces with quick-release fasteners so damaged body panels couls be easily replaced in a short amount of time.
The Coyote has a solo seat centered in the car for balance and a powerful 1900 cc EMPI Type III engine with dual carburetors.
