1969 Chaparral 2H - Minichamps

Developed to replace the 2G, the 2H was rather unsuccessful. However, like the 2J, it was quite an appearance and had several innovative technologies in it. I think some are still used in modern race cars. The 2H was raced in the 1969 Can-Am season by John Surtees. It only managed a 4th at Edmonton and a 5th in Mid-Ohio.

Very cool looking model of a very odd looking car! :)

Nice photoset of a car that raced in my favorite series: CanAm.

Dig the car in spite of it's lackluster history. But what IS a great success are these great photos! Nice work.

Wonderful. Are you going to get the other configuration of this car?

Thanks to both of you. I'm a bit surprised some of them turned to be this good. I'm having trouble shooting 1:43 models.

At first I was thinking one is enough. But to be honest I'm considering the other one as well. There are way too less Chaparral models released.
