Rick Mancuso, John and Burt Greenwood appoint Duntov Motor Company to build Continuation Widebody 1976 Greenwood LeMans Corvettes
The all conquering Greenwood Widebody Corvettes will again see action in 2016 with the scheduled debut of the first Continuation Greenwood Factory Works Widebody Corvettes. Built to the exact specifications utilizing molds and fixtures built off the original tooling, these cars will no doubt reclaim their position atop big bore podiums at the major venues in US and European Vintage racing. The debut race is scheduled to be at Road America in July. The balance of the year will have the new Greenwood cars at every SVRA race right up to and including the season ending National Championships at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, in November.
Rick Mancuso's Lake Forest Sportscars will be the exclusive distributor of the Continuation Greenwood Corvettes. Mancuso has scheduled the Continuation Greenwood Narrow Bodied car to debut in 2017.
Duntov is proud to have been selected to produce these legendary racecars. The Greenwood Widebody joins Duntov's product line that includes the 1963 Corvette Grand Sport and Duntov's 1969 Corvettes to give Duntov cars three different race groups to run in SVRA vintage competition.
Just as they were back at LeMans in 1976, the new Greenwood Widebody cars will feature an aluminum 464 cubic inch fuel injected engine, alloy racing brakes, 15 inch wide rear wheels and significant aero downforce. They were clocked at 220 MPH back in the day, and they are not going to be a bit slower in 2014! X
