Description

This is the last car that the very popular Bob Akin campaigned in the IMSA series. Until then, this Chapman chassis C04 carried on with authority, wearing the beautiful black and red color scheme with sponsors Yokohama, Paradyne and Akin's own Hudson Wire Company, finishing 5th in its maiden outing at the Road America 500 in the hands of legendary drivers James Weaver and Vern Schuppan. This was followed up with an effort in the hands of the man who has won every major road racing endurance race, Hurley Haywood, teaming up with Weaver at Columbus for an 8th place finish. The third and last race for C04 was the Del Mar 2-hour with James Weaver the sole driver. Campaigned in the Historic Sportscar Racing series with great success, 962-C04 is in excellent condition in its stunning Coca Cola / Yokohama / Paradyne Black and Red livery. Expertly restored in 2003 and currerently maintained by leading Porsche specialist Sean Creech Motorsport / Metro Racing Systems. 962- C04 serial number of course designates the rare and highly desirable Chapman honeycomb aluminum chassis licensed by Porsche, which features greater stiffness and durablity. This 962 is race ready with a freshly built and dyno-tested 3.0L engine, and freshly rebuilt transaxle/differential.
