Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport (Mecom Racing, 1964 12 Hours of Sebring) - 1:43 Scale Model Car

TSM

$ 72.00


Developed in secret under the watchful eye of legendary engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov, the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport should have been a world-class contender in international GT racing. General Motors' corporate ban on motorsport in the 1960s, however, killed the Grand Sport program after only five prototypes had been completed and raced sporadically, leaving the car's full racing potential unrealized. As an emblem of what might have been, the Grand Sport has achieved near-mythic status among the Corvette faithful as the ultimate example of the breed.

TSM's 1:43-scale resin replica of the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport (chassis number 003 as campaigned to 5th-in-class in the 1964 12 Hours of Sebring by Mecom Racing Team) is a stirring tribute to the awesome potential of GM's unauthorized race weapon. Its intricately sculpted body is recreated in perfect detail, with particular attention lavished on the car's complex vented hood and aggressively flared quarter panels. Paint finish and miniature sponsor stickers are of the highest quality, ensuring that the TSM Grand Sport will hold a place of honor in any collection of Chevy racing memorabilia.

SPECIFICATIONS: 1:43 scale (approximately four inches in length). Resin body, no opening parts. Comes with acrylic dust cover and embossed display base.

PERFECT FOR: Corvette fans. Racing history enthusiasts. Those who do their best work in the shadows.
