Chaparral 2F by Exoto, signed Jim Hall
Exoto fine scale replica of the 'Texan Roadrunner' Chaparral 2F, full reveal with detailed engine and interior, this model is in mint condition, boxed and presented case signed by Jim Hall, co-founder of Chaparral.
In the 2F Hall applied the aerodynamic advances of the aluminum 2E to the older fiberglass chassis closed-cockpit 2D for the 1967 racing season. A movable wing mounted on struts loaded the rear suspension while an air dam kept the front end planted. The radiators were moved to positions next to the cockpit. An aluminum 7-liter Chevrolet 'big block' engine replaced the 5.3-liter engine of the 2D. While always extremely fast, the 2F scored its only win on 30 July 1967 in the BOAC 500 at Brands Hatch with Hill and Mike Spence driving. As with the 2D, the 2F raced wearing Texas license plates.
