Real Art Replicas 1:18 Scale #2 Cunningham 1960 Chevrolet Corvette - 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans - Thompson and Windridge.

The Cunningham team bought three 1960 Corvettes from Don Allen Chevrolet, each was optioned to the gills with every performance tweak available including a 290 hp fuel-injected V8, quick-ratio steering, heavy-duty sintered-metallic brake linings, heavy-duty suspension, a close-ratio four-speed transmission, a Positraction limited-slip differential, a radio delete, and a temperature-controlled radiator fan.

Cunningham would finalize the effort by picking some of the best drivers of the time to pilot his cars. He and Bill Kimberley would drive the #1 Corvette, Dick Thompson and Fred Windridge would be in the #2 Corvette and John Fitch and Bob Grossman would handle the #3 Corvette. The #1 and #2 Corvettes would be forced to retire during the race, but the #3 Corvette would forge on, overcoming some fantastic obstacles thanks to the amazing crew that Cunningham had assembled. When the checkered flag waived, the #3 Corvette crossed the finish line as the CLASS CHAMPION while finishing 8th overall!
