The Dodge Storm Z-250 was developed by Chrysler engineer Fred Zeder to evaluate the feasibility of producing a vehicle that would capture a portion of the growing American sports car market. Built on a rigid tube frame chassis, it was intended to be a dual-purpose sports/racing car. When raced, the comfortable body currently fitted could be removed by unscrewing four bolts and replaced with an ultra light 150-pound fiberglass body. The Storm did not reach production because high production costs would have made it too expensive to sell in profitable quantities. If series produced, the Dodge Storm Z-250 would have competed with the Ford Thunderbird, Chevrolet Corvette, and Kaiser-Darrin.
