Jim Hall's Chaparral 2H-Chevrolet  (1)

Little-known substitute driver Tom Dutton (nothing in Google!) crashed the car in practice, causing this innovative car to miss its home-state Can-Am.

From Tom Piantanida:    "I found the Chaparral 2H at a motel near the track.  Can you believe that the most innovative entrant still brought his car to the track on an open trailer??  Actually, the car was driven by Tom Dutton - not by Jim Hall, who had been seriously injured the year before.  Tom crashed the car in practice, and retired it."
