Project Ruptured Duck is a hand crafted one-off custom vehicle, designed and built by Brycen Smith 


This idea to build an aircraft-themed car was born in 2007, then over time designed and built to have the look and feel of a B-25 Mitchell Bomber, inspired by the Doolittle Raider ‘Ruptured Duck’ bomber in WWII. 


45% of the proceeds will be donated to Home For Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that “builds mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured Veterans Post – 9/11, to enable them to rebuild their lives.”


5% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Aeronautical Foundation (AAF) in Camarillo, California, which was founded “to help preserve the aviation legacy of our World War II Veterans and the aircraft they flew.”
