I heard that the use of the Coupe GT name was so that Jim Hall didn't have to be paid for his Chapparal name, but I don't know if it's true. As for the Aileron Mobile it was infact a moving wing that used a ball bearing that rolled around in a compartment at the rear and knocked the wing up or down as it went around the track. The ball bearing added too much weight to the rear of the car.
