To Buy A Chaparral 2E?
Chaparral Cars LLC has announced that a strictly limited edition
“continuation of series” Chaparral 2E will be unveiled
to the media and public at the Rolex Monterey Historic Races later
this month (August 19 to 21). The event is already due to feature
the historic Chaparral racers as part of the theme “2005 Great
American Specials”, and the unveiling of the newly built 2E
will complete the occasion.
“continuation series” cars will be built using the original
body moulds, plans and engineering drawings, under the direction
of Jim Hall, of course.
The only existing
example in the world of a Chaparral 2E is in the Petroleum Museum
in Midland, Texas. www.petroleummuseum.org
The 2E Continuation
Series will make this historic and beautiful car available for sale
on a limited production run basis.
Now who's that
sitting in the 'passenger seat' of the sole surviving 2E?
Jim Hall and
Jim Musser from Chaparral Cars will be on hand at Laguna Seca to
launch the ‘new 2E’.
The company’s new website - www.chaparralcars.com
- goes on-line on August 19.
