Astra X-300GT: By the mid-'60s, most of the Kellison bodies were being sold by Allied Fiberglass under the Astra name. They came out with the X-300GT, a J-4 variant featuring a higher roof line to gain head room in the interior. It also had an oval grille, while many J-series bodies had squared-off grilles.

J-4 Grand Turismo:  This handsome coupe had a 98-inch wheelbase and was sold in kit and turnkey form. The basic kits started at $365, and a completed car was $6,700 in 1960.  The J-4 body was also used on many road racers, dragsters, show cars, and Bonneville cars. Although normal production bodies had inner panels, firewalls and extra reinforcement, Kellison also made lightweight Competition Bodies with no inner structure.
