Chevrolet Corvette C1 SR2 from a Chevrolet Corvette C1
This is a Chevrolet Corvette C1 model made by Road Champs with Ref.: 64001 and it was modified by me to represent a Chevrolet Corvette C1 SR2 which is not available in 1/43 scale.
The next 4 pictures show the evolution of the modifications. The first 2 show the placement of the aluminium structure and the second 2 show the filling with epoxy.
This is the final result that represents a Chevrolet Corvette C1 SR2 made in 1956 with a s/n: E56S002532 and a V8cyl engine with 4638cc capacity. 255hp CR=10.3:1 and 3 speed automatic gearbox capable of 242km/h; 1043kg (fiberglass body) 3 built. This s/n raced at Sebring 12hr in 1957 Gr.:S5.0 Team: Lindsay Hopkins with Paul O'Shea and Pete Lovely finishing 16th (31 laps behind the winner).
