Boots on the Ground: First SCG Baja Boot Ready to Roll

In January, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) announced plans to build the Baja Boot. The first production Boot rolled out of the SCG shop late last week. SCG posted video of the Boot driving around its shop on social media saying, "We have boots on the ground."

The original Baja Boot was designed in the 1960s by Vic Hickey and Steve McQueen. There are only two in existence—with one of them owned by SCG founder James Glickenhaus.

The Baja Boot was loaded up and taken to The Quail in Carmel, California, over the weekend to be displayed. The Quail is a motorsports gathering that draws car enthusiasts and collectors from all over the world. The event is held each August at the Quail Lodge and Golf Club.

The Baja Boot will race in the street-legal class in the SCORE Baja 1000 in November. The production version will feature a GM LT4 V-8 engine that produces 650 hp. There will be both two-door and four-door models available. The two-door will have a soft top. Owners will have a choice of 37- or 40-inch BFG tires with a dual shock setup that features 2.5 coilovers in the front and rear with 3.0 bypasses. The Baja Boot will be 49-state legal.

So far it looks like the first Boot is on track to race Baja.
