…I know. I know. Everyone has done one.

So I did the #5 car. The 427 cubic inch beast that ran only once (as #5) at Sebring in 1967.

I didn't bother with the front paddle spoilers:

Or the absurd "luggage box" that was bolted to the modified rear. FIA required that all cars have room for a suitcase - two suitcases if over 2.0 liter displacement. The big block engine installation left no internal room for luggage, so…

Apart from that, I think that it's reasonably faithful to the original. Anyway, I like it. And it's fun-to-run.

This "vast wasteland" of an interior cried out for detail.

I also agree that the the blue tinted windows are somewhat annoying,.....but ,the vast majority of Strommie 2D's came with them. Some did have clear widows, and I am on the lookout.

Cheers

PS..Joel, a bunch of the red ones also came with the blue windows,. no rhyme no reason........if anyone has a clear window piece, I would be happy to talk !!

Nice job. Especially with the interiors.

This body is the only Chaparral that really appeals to me.

Interesting about the windows: I did not notice the tint until you guys mentioned it.

Very nice work, especially on the interior. Strombecker did a number of nice models, and this 2D is the best of the vintage ones, in my opinion....capturing the wasp waisted shape that the Eldon missed. The availability of the MRRC wheels is a huge boon to these cars.

Very pretty.

Mfogg. Absolutely beautiful work on your 2D! A very classic look!

If I could drive a race car on the street? A 2D would be my choice. A lime green one.

I've had 2-different white 2D bodies. One had blue tinted windows, and the other clear.

El coche esta muy bien realizado.

Yo tampoco hubiera puesto el maletero, queda muy feo. Lo que si hubiera añadido es la prolongación del alerón posterior hacia el lateral del coche.

The car is very well made.

I would not have put the trunk either, it is very ugly. What if I had added is the extension of the rear wing towards the side of the car.
