The 2G model was one of the only cars not shown, as it was destroyed during a race.


"The 2H was the only real 'failure' from Jim Hall. It was developed after his accident in the 2G so he never got to de-bug it. It also was postponed and was outclassed by the time it was finally deployed. They ran an old McLaren for part of that year!

It was the car I studied the most while I was there. Very interesting design: fully stressed skin, articulated DeDion rear suspension (toe corrected in bump and droop, but not roll), 20" wide rear tires,
moveable rear wing, almost enclosed cockpit.... Very interesting stuff for the '60s." John Allen
