He ran a variety of very fast cars but he wanted something faster for A. He eventually decided to modify a Cooper Monaco to the requirements, so a Cooper without engine, gearbox and body was ordered. The car was named the Hussein 1 after King Hussein of Jordan, who was a great racing enthusiast.
The connection between King Hussein and the Mecom team is that John Mecom's father secured the oil drilling rights in Jordan and the King visited the company's headquarters in Texas. He naturally did not miss the opportunity to see the competition cars and John Mecom decided to call the car Hussein in his honor. See my other listings for more vintage car model kits.
