The M.C.A. Jetstar was a car built by my father, Ulri

ch Otten, in the 1960’s.  The car was  built in Bremen, Germany up until 1964.  It was comprised of a fiberglass body with a VW powerplant (45 HP).  Several of these open-air roadsters  were sold.  A single prototype was built for a hard-top version, which was called the Jet Komet.  If you have further info or photos of this car that you would like to share, please email them to Thomas P. Otten. Danke!
