Chaparral 2G-L Prototype

4 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

This started as an original Hot Wheels Chaparral 2G casting that was “over-played-with” and the rear wing and engine cover were missing as well as the wheels being really worn out when I got it.

I reworked it and scratch-built a new engine cover/scoop to replicate a rare Chaparral 2G-L Codalunga Prototype that was tested for Le Mans and intended to run in 1968, but since the chassis could not handle the power of the 427 it was deemed unsuitable for endurance racing and they never attempted to qualify it.

I also made the decals for it.

"reworked it and scratch-built a new engine cover/scoop to replicate a rare Chaparral 2G-L Codalunga Prototype"........ Hummmmm, I'd say Insanely Rare, Chaparral Long Tail. Neat build there Mark.
