Chassis: CSX2287
The original Daytona Coupe, chassis CSX2287 is the only one of the six to feature an American built body. It was raced extensively in 1964 and 1965 with a first in class at Sebring in 1964 as the best result. After its contemporary racing career, it was used by Craig Breedlove to set various land speed and endurance records at the Bonneville Salt Flats. It subsequently disappeared for nearly three decades, not to resurface until 2001. This highly important American racing car was subject of various legal proceedings but is now in the caring hand of a collector. It is now on display for all to see in the Simeone Foundation Museum.
