The AMMO NYC garage has detailed some pretty interesting cars over the years, most of them being absurdly dirty and just downright disgusting vehicles like the last Subaru Forester we featured on this space.

Every once in a while, though, these guys get to go to town on some very special pieces of automotive history, like the Glickenhaus Boot.

Yes, that’s the actual Baja-winning Glickenhaus Boot from Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG). And it was recently delivered to Larry Kosilla of AMMO NYC by none other than Jim Glickenhaus himself.

Alright, enough spoilers—you can go ahead and watch the whole clip below:
