Chevrolet Corvette C2 Grand Sport

This car was developed in 1963 by Zora Arkus-Duntov and a team of engineers of GM, but as the news that a team of GS had been successfully tested, with promising results, for the Sebring race, GM Chairman Frederic Donner made it clear that GM would respect the American Motor Association (AMA) ban and ordered to stop the racing program. So the homologation run of 125 cars was cancelled, fortunately enough parts had been fabricated to built 5 or 6 cars that were loaned to Corvette friendly outsiders without any assistance of GM. They were only to be seen on USA racetracks.

The 1/8 scale model was ordered by a client and was realized on the basis of the Monogram Corvette C2. The whole frame was designed and build in aluminum, as was the suspension and engine, with its typical injection manifolds. The car body was completely reshaped from front to rear, including opening doors. To get close to reality, the Halibrand wheels were home made to the specifications of the real wheels.
