Description

1988 CORVETTE CHALLENGE RACE CAR #2. From 1985 to 1987 Corvette dominated the SS class of the SCCA Showroom Stock Endurance Championship. Its' record was 19-0. In fact, in 1987 Chevy won the Manufacturers' Championship by a modest 81-7 margin. SCCA mercifully ended this brutal massacre by creating an entirely new class for this car. What else do you do with a car in a class by itself? The Corvette Challenge Series was born. In 1988 the #2 car was driven by Juan Manuel Fangio II, nephew of Juan Manuel Fangio of Argentina, five-time Formula One world driving champion. In the 1988 ten race series, the #2 car, campaigned by Tom Gloy Motorsports, won three races and finished second overall in the series. No other car in the series won as many races. The car was purchased by Jim Crist, a Corvette dealer from Largo, Fl., after the inaugural race series. Jim campaigned the car in SCCA and drove it to three Regional Championships. The car comes as raced in SCCA with many spare parts and accessories. During the 1988 Corvette Challenge, SCCA took the top ten cars after the first four races and replaced the original sealed engines with replacement motors to insure that the original engines had not been tampered with. We have the original sealed engine on an engine stand with the replacement engine still in the car. There are promotional materials such as GoodYear tire advertising posters, mounted and framed, that come with the vehicle as well as various magazine articles. The original SCCA log book # 88 131 comes with the car and has been signed by Fangio. The first factory-built Corvette race car is offered for the first time at $49,850. Will consider interesting Corvette as possible trade. Financing available. Contact Jim Crist, Toy Store - Tampa Bay at 727-585-6000 or jim@vettenet.com WE BUY CLEAN CORVETTES.
